Corrupted : Noothgrush/Corrupted Split




This is one of the darkest and heaviest splits between two sludge/doom bands that I have ever come across. When two of the most influential sludge/doom bands, who are known to create just this kind of music, decide to do a split together, one expects them to deliver the worst in the best kind of way.

Indeed Noothgrush doesn't fail to deliver music good enough for those expectations. Their old-school Grief-like sludge/doom is as sick, heavy and filthy as they are expected to deliver. You'd better have a good reason not to frown.

Corrupted on their side do just as well. Their hardcore influenced sludge/doom is filled with the ugliness which Corrupted fans seems to enjoy. Truly hideous down to the bone.

Both bands are in the vein of Grief, but in their own distinct ways. Those who enjoy Grief's way of creating sludge should also give these two bands a shot. I cannot think of anyone from that fanbase who have tried them and disliked them. If that's not a good recommendation in itself, then I don't know.
