Volume 666 2012 EP Cover Art

ChimpGrinder are a Blues/Sludge/Stoner/Doom Metal band from Philly. USA

The members are:

Aaron, Steve, Chris, Chris

ChimpGrinder are a great Blues, Sludge, Stoner, Doom Metal Band influenced by bands past and present. OK their music is nothing we haven't heard before. But these guys are supremely talented and play quick Black Sabbath based music blended in with angry NOLA riffage.

Their bio tells you a bit more about their history.

"From the spinning bowels of a 1960 research facility, former members of As$troland, Perils of Obedience, Jeer at Rome, and Johatsu came together to found Chimpgrinder. Faceripping bluesdeathsludge"

Their latest release "Volume 666 2012 EP" is a 6 song almost 12 minute blast of fast paced Sludge/Stoner Metal music with some great song titles to match.

Another great discovery waiting to be had for free from BandCamp. And I thank the band for emailing me.

You can download their other excellent debut EP for free as well from BandCamp.

All in all this is a hugely promising start for a very cool band. I just wish the songs were on longer. Maybe on their next release. Anyway get downloading now.
