SPORA Recordz - S:t Erik and Squidbucket

Spora Recordz is a cool new record label specializing in excellent underground music and releasing them on vinyl.

S:t Erik - From Under The Tarn

S:t Erik are a Doom/Sludge/Stoner Metal Band From Sweden

The members are: Erik, Tomas, Mats, Fredrik & Magnus

What an album they have for their first proper release. The brilliant and classic 2009 album from Doom/Sludge/Stoner Metallers – S:T Erik – From Under TheTarn.

I have been a fan of this band and album since it was first released. It was a shame it was criminally ignored upon release as this is a blistering and bruising encounter of Sludge, Stoner and Doom metal.

This is the modern day equivalent of Sleep landmark classic – Dopesmoker. It’s a 5 song and 50 minute classic that is waiting to be discovered by today’s audience. Do yourself a favour and don’t miss this album again.

They share many things in common with Sleep classic album. Long drawn out epic guitar riffs that last long well into the memory.

It’s a brilliant blast of out-there riffs that will have you coming back time and time again. Quite simply a brilliant release from a band who I hope release more records in the future.

Spora Recordz have decided to release this classic album the way it’s meant to be played – On Vinyl. It’s the perfect format to listen to this album. Just sit back and listen to the grooves of S:t Erik who are finally starting to get some major praise after releasing this classic album 3 years ago.

Brilliant and Highly Recommended. You can buy this album on vinyl from here:

Squidbucket are a brilliant Instrumental Funk/Stoner Metal Band.

The members are: Jason Erwin along with various musicians including Kurt Rightler, Eric Brown, Trist’n Templeman, Marc April, and Daniel Ray.

Spora Recordz are also releasing two albums from ace Experimental Funk/Stoner Metallers – SquidBucket

Their two albums Squidbucket and Celery City are two superb examples of top-notch Experimental Instrumental Funk/Stoner Metal which you can buy here and here

If you’re into Karma To Burn, Tool and Primus then you’re going to dig this great band. Their two albums are brilliant blasts of out there Instrumental Metal to get your pulse in a flutter.

These guys are masters at writing trippy experimental Funk Metal to truly stand out from the crowd. These guys have too many standout tracks to mention but believe me this is something you don’t want to pass up on.

Both albums are equally brilliant as each other and I want to hear more from these hugely talented rockers.

Another great band to check out on this brilliant record label.

Squidbucket comes highly recommended and if you want something different in Instrumental Metal then you can’t go wrong here. Simply Unmissable.

Well Spora Recordz are off to a brilliant start and I expect to see many more great releases from this excellent new label specialising in the best underground Sludge/Doom/Stoner Metal has to offer.
