GALLONS OF MUD

Demo 2011 Cover Art

Gallons Of Mud is a Sludge/Stoner Metal Band from Germany.

The members are:

bass/vocals: Steve
guitars: Kay
drums: PE 

Gallons Of Mud play a superb blend of bass-driven Sludge/Stoner Metal that has to be played loud. Taking influence from WeedEater, Sleep, Kyuss and other legendary bands of the Sludge/Stoner Metal genres.

After I published CUT’s album on the blog, Gallons Of Mud member emailed me to include his band as CUT’s album was released as a split release with Gallons Of Mud who have now made their side of the split for free download.

Well I loved CUT’s music I had to check it out especially since they said they were more in the WeedEater, Sleep and Kyuss mould of Stoner Metal.

Where CUT is more Hardcore, Sludge bleak driven music well Gallons Of Mud are truly the opposite side of the same coin. Upbeat bass-driven Sludge/Stoner Metal music which has got quite a kick to it.

Gallons Of Mud do play some mighty fine riffs. Its not the most original of Stoner Metal of sounds but who cares when it sounds this good and they have a brilliant lead singer to drive their superb music through.

They have just released their superb S/T Demo in late 2011. It’s a 3 song 21 minute blast of hard-hitting Stoner Metal riffs.

If you’re a fan of the 3 bands mentioned above then your going to love this no matter what I tell you. My verdict the 3 songs on show are great. The time just flies by. This is the type of music you can hang out with your friends and shoot the breeze to.

Superbly produced and played by all involved. My fave track is 21 Grammes. Full of hypnotic Stoner Metal riffs that will have you head-banging in no time. 8.13 minutes of great music that the old masters of Sleep and Kyuss used to make back in the early 90s. When being a Stoner Metal/Rock Fan was at its most fun and most honest. This song will take you back your youth if you were around back then.

So all in all this is a superb release by another great Stoner Metal band from our German Brothers.

You can download this brilliant release for free from BandCamp. And like CUT its highly recommended.
