Style: Sludge Metal
Release date: 26 January, 2015
Playing time: 62:14

When around five years ago from the fermented sediment of sludge metal become to come out masterpieces the popular music industry was still trying to accept the boys from NWOUSHM. The stoner rock inspirations have not found yet their new substratum for development. Fortunately this process of growth still continues. And the last bubble that burst open in the field of the official releases is called „I`m Going to Kill Myself “.

BLACK SHEEP WALL are a band that forges its style since 2006. And this is their third full length album recorded as quartet. The non-compromising sharp guitar sound and their pure original style set them amongst the bands that can most precisely define the sludge metal. BURNSRED is the closest name with which I can compare them. This is a comparison only for the maniacs of the gender! The slow rhythms, the informational loaded sound, the aggressive vocals, and the complex rhythms in the long compositions dominate the works of the Americans. While such bands often carry the etiquettes with an affix “post” and this definition became a synonym of non-metal such definitions are not suitable here. We can only say that as the anti-pop mood is in the genesis of the sludge metal, BLACK SHEEP WALL is a bearer of a post-fast culture. The rich and live sense from the dense non-sterilized sound of contemporary recording is left in the album. The soft psychadelic moods that also are characteristic for the gender persist here in a perfect dose. The heaviness of the guitars and the deep harsh vocal determine the pure themes of this music. музика.

The lack of stoner influences and catchy post acoustics are the easier way for defining the style of BLACK SHEEP WALL. The rest is pure sludge metal with self-restricted in their own means of expression wealth of ideas. The band does not want to impose you a message. It wants you to be able to find it by yourselves (Not literally!).
