The members are:


DeZafra Ridge are a brilliant Sludge/Post-Metal Band who blend Sludge, Doom, Hardcore and Post-Metal to spell-binding effect. They are another outstanding band coming Germany like Wolves Carry My Name, Union Of Sleep amongst many others featured on this blog.

Here is a bio for this great band.

"Leipzig, November 2011 – While the onset of winter approaches, DeZafra Ridge make their debut with a four-track EP: a gloomy composition of down-tempo sludge strokes, rolling guitar riffs and expansive melodies, overlaid with strong shouting vocals.

The five-piece band from Leipzig, Germany, creates in this release a dark, cold atmosphere of both stillstand and progress, slicing heavy fog while delving into spiritual abyss. Inspired by ancient Mythology and contemporary culture as well as personal experience and introspection, the music accompanies the lyrics by a [homogeneous] fusion of different [varieties of] metal genres, in a monotonous, hypnotic manner."

The band's S/T debut EP is a 4 song and 40 minute blast of hard-hitting Sludge/Post-Metal riffs that has a haunting ambient creepy feel to their music. These guys could be perfect touring partners for Canadian Sludge Bruisers - Alaskan.

They both play the same blend of top-notch Atmospheric Sludge/Post-Metal riffs to amaze you with time and time again.

DeZafra Ridge debut release is a brilliant monumental release. It showcases the band's talents at writing and performing amazing Sludge/Post-Metal riffs with great vocals to match.

These guys take their time in cranking up the atmosphere to maximum volume. Once they do it's very hard to resist. Especially on tracks like "Temerity Of Owls" and "Innocent Hibernation". These guys don't do short tracks they play epic lengthy tracks to chill the soul to.

This is music for the jaded pissed off at the world person in us all. We all get like that when things never go right. You feel the whole world is against you. 

Heck I felt like this most of this week. But DeZafra Ridge lifted me out that mood fucking brilliantly. They have the talent of other top-notch Sludge/Post-Metal bands of snapping you out of that dark cloud. As the pummeling riffs put everything into perspective. And put you in a euphoric state of being.

A testament to the band's talent of making highly emotional thinking man's metal. It's a fucking amazing release from a truly great band and one I am truly thankful for we have in the world of Sludge/Post-Metal.

The release is brilliantly produced and you can hear every note played to loud angry perfection. 

DeZafra Ridge are an amazing band that Germany should be proud of. These guys are going to be one of the big-hitters in the next few years.

You can buy this release from all sorts of various formats from their BandCamp Page. But guys have very kindly given me a link to download this amazing album for free from Mediafire and I thank them for it.

All I say in return - If you like what you hear. Head over to BandCamp and buy some merch or leave a comment on Facebook. The guys will totally appreciate it.

Fucking Brilliant and Highly Recommended.
