Demo 2 cover art

Diazepam are a Sludge/Stoner/Doom Metal Band from Idaho, USA.

The members are:

Drew: vocals
Matt: guitar
John: guitar
Mike: drums

Diazepam are as you would expect not a happy band but a rather cool and brutal Sludge/Doom/Stoner Metal band dealing in things of despair and misery. But with some cool riffs to aid our pain and suffering.

Matt sent me a cool description of his band's sound.

"We're a 4 piece Stoner/Sludge band from Idaho. We have 2 guitar players a drummer and a singer. No bass player. Me and the other guitar player both run huge guitar rigs, and when we kicked out our bassist we decided to just keep it guitars only. We've just released our second demo, simply titled "Demo 2"

Well these guys do have a big fucking guitar sound that needs to be heard. Their new release - Demo 2 - is a heavy monolithic filthy beast of great riffs. The 5 songs on the release show what this great band is all about. 25 minutes of soul destroying slabs of great Sludge/Stoner Metal.

First track - Sunn Of Skam - shows what this band is all about. And it's very hard not to be impressed. There are some brilliant solo riffs on show here with great bleak vocals to match.

If your into Sleep, EyeHateGod, Electric Wizard then your going to love this. Diazepam really do have some great tricks up their sleeve to stand out from the crowd.

Also check out - Weak Fist, Sleight Of Hand - which is my fave track on this excellent release. It's a slow paced down-tempo masterpiece. Diazepam are a really talented band and one I hope do go far as they do bring something different to the Sludge/Doom/Stoner Metal scene.

Headover to BandCamp and download both of their excellent releases for free right now. As their previous demo is almost as good as this one. Both superbly produced and bleak as fuck.

Highly Recommended.
