When any new release from St. Louis, Missouri heavyweights Fister comes along, you immediately know it should be accompanied by its own sick bag, given that their unique blend of sludge is likely to make you wretch under the drone of gargled misery. A much celebrated band and one we champion more than many at The Sludgelord, my interest piqued at an upcoming release set for release via Encapsulated Records, a new split 7" featuring Fister and their buddies from St. Louis Everything Went Black. Ladies and Genitals, this is not just any old release, these two filth dealers are not only doing a split, but take each other’s songs and put their own unique stamp on them, by covering each other's songs. Indeed the resultant split invokes a feeling of, “why the hell, don’t more bands do this”.
Everything Went Black tackle the track “Suicide Hessian” which was originally written by Fister and released on their album “Gemini”, whilst Fister have recorded “Card of Giants” written by Everything Went Black, and released on the Rattletooth Split. Today at The Sludgelord, it is an unbelievable honour to showcase this crushing 7inch and you can check it out in full below with pressing info about the release.
