Groll Demo cover art

Groll is a Sludge/Crust/Doom Metal Band From Cologne/Dortmund, Germany.

For Fucks Sake. Germany has provided me with another superb Sludge/Doom Metal Band to check out. This time with Groll. A brutal as fuck Sludge/Crust/Doom Metal outfit specialising in heavy  despairing riffs. Add terrifying vocals to the mix and you have the perfect recipe for a loud and crushing demo release.

As Groll's album will punish you into submission. First track - Das Frisst Mir Kraft - will show you what your future nightmares will sound like. A perfect song for all you you dark, brooding metalheads if your getting sick of the hot summer weather. This will definitely fuck up your day in the best possible way.

And that's how the rest of the demo plays out. Crushing Sludge/Crust/Doom Metal heavy riffs that Germany is becoming well known on the blog for. I definitely have to visit Germany one day to see what is driving bands like Nightslug, Groll, Rodha, Wolves Carry My Name and Union Of Sleep to delivering brilliant heavy crushing riffs like this.

This is an excellent album to show off Groll's talents to 100% maximum damage to your eardrums. If you want fast and furious Doom/Crust based Sludge Metal riffs then Groll are the band for you. Don't say I didn't warn you about the heavy onslaught that awaits you....

The Demo is superbly produced. Everything is played loud and clear which is good for a heavy as fuck band like Groll. They need to be heard loud. This is music to piss off the neighbours with.

Check out other excellent tracks - Allesfresser, Der Saboteur and Funkstille to get your fix of dirge infested riffage. 

If you're feeling brave enough then this is up for free download on BandCamp. An absolute beast of an album.

Excellent and Highly Recommended.
