I have to thank ace Sludge Metal Band DKH for the tip about this next band.

Anacondas are a brilliant band that features two members of much missed Metalcore heroes - Johnny Truant and its about as far away from that band's sound you can possibly get.

Anacondas are a Sludge/Stoner Metal band mixing Grunge and Hardcore to brutal effect. Their new album - Sub Contra Blues - is an amazing album and one that heralds the arrival of a great band.

First track - You Set Fire To The Moon - features some outstanding Sludge/Stoner Metal riffs and perfect heartfelt vocals to match. Play this song as loud as you can and shout to the roof tips as it has a great sing-along chorus. An epic track that will surely get your pulse racing.

What follows next over the next 7 tracks is a barrage of hard-hitting riffs blending elements of Grunge, Hardcore, Sludge and Stoner Metal that will make you a fan of this great band right away. The band called their blend of music - Slunge - A mixture of Grunge and Sludge. A term that I like a lot and one that describes their blend of music very well.

If your a fan of Deftones,The Cure, Isis and Torche then you will feel right at home here. As the band have paid tribute to their musical heroes while still maintaining their own original vibe. Vocals are sang with an almighty authority that gives the album an unexpected edge.

Check out excellent tracks - River, Cold Blooded & Warm Hearted, Simianimal and the superb 8:45 minute epic - This Night Will Last Forever,

Production is immense. The riffs are HUGE through out. You can see these guys supporting some of the big hitters of Sludge/Stoner Metal in the months to come. These songs have the power to make everyone rock out in the Mosh Pit.

The vocals might be a bit off-putting for some but please give it time as you will be missing out on a great album. It has a vibe all of it's own and one that makes this album truly standout from the pack.

All in all - Sub Contra Blues - is a must have album for all Sludge/Grunge/Stoner Metal fans. Sorry Slunge Metal fans as the band would like to be known as. Whatever you want to classify this album, there is no denying that Sub Contra Blues is a brilliant album for you all to check out now.

Sub Contra Blues is available on Buy Now Download from BandCamp. So headover and download it now. You won't be sorry.

Excellent and Highly Recommended.
