Here is another awesome album that I have somehow missed. Ordos are are a kick-ass Fuzz laiden Sludge/Stoner Metal Band from the Motherland of Sludge/Stoner Metal – SWEDEN.

Their S/T debut album is blast of action packed riffs which grabs you right from the start. First track – Hounds Of Hell – takes you to Sludge/Stoner Metal paradise than hell as it has some great riffs to check out. Emil's vocals have a slight Truckfighters quality to them to begin with but wait until he shouts some Doom and Gloom vocals to the mix that literally come out of nowhere.

2nd track – Crossing Over – is one of the albums stand-out tracks as the band throw superb riffs your way to chew on. By now you won't be able to get enough of this great band. It's a stunning mix of modern Sludge/Stoner Metal riffs mixed with classic 70's Hard Rock dual guitar worship. Always a winning combination in my book.

Ordos slow things right down with epic 3rd track – The Witch – that starts very quietly before the band slowly build the atmosphere with loud noises and vocals for one heavy as fuck experience you will need your wits about you. The Sludge Metal is piled on thick here especially with the riffs towards the end of the song. You maybe playing this song for quite some time as it's a fucking brilliant track to listen to over and over again.

If you want an album to blast your hearing to smithereens with intense Sludge/Stoner Metal riffs then this is the album for you. Obviously with the band being Swedish they can't help bringing the FUZZ to the party and it's a blast from start to finish.

Just do yourself a favour and download this brilliant album now. It's available on BandCamp Buy Now Download. You wont be sorry.

Excellent and Highly Recommended.
