Sail's take on sludge metal is melodic and atmospheric with a focus on big vocal and guitar hooks. In the vein of Baroness, Mastodon and Red Fang their approach is by turns aggressive and twinkly, with hints of post-rock and prog metal.
Previously known as Husk, they released an album and a split with Striga before re-branding in October 2016 to better reflect a cleaner direction. As Husk they played alongside established UK names such as Hark, WarCrab and Conjurer and opened the Plymouth date of Botanist and Kayo Dot's European tour
Their debut release as Sail, “Slumbersong” will be released via Hibernacula Records on 10/03/17 and today you can check the superb Baroness/Mastodon inspired sludge fest that is “The Weight of Gold”. This beast is a progressive and masterfully executed slice of heaviness that is sure to win them a string of new admirers.
