The Sludgelord Video Premiere - Torpor unleash the mighty "Jasager"

By: Aaron Pickford

It is not often that a band is so damn corrosive and monstrously heavy that they literally and figuratively make you lose your shit, but London three piece Torpor are that band.  Undeniably face melting, their fusion of sludge, noise and doom, hasn’t quite reached the heady heights of some of their contemporaries, however Torpor’s star is in the ascendency.

For me they released one of, if not the best release of 2015, with the monumental “From Nothing Comes Everything” but if that wasn’t enough, the band regrouped and possibly even outmuscled themselves, with the release of the frankly obese split with Sonance earlier this year via Truthseeker Music.

With the recent announcement that Torpor, will play the prestigious Incubate Festival on Saturday 10th 2016, the band have also collaborated with their good friends, Massive Lake, on a video for their phenomenal 10 minute masterpiece of drone “Jasager” and today at The Sludgelord, we’re humbled to be able to debut the premiere of the video in full, which you can check out below. Remember “A family that Slays together, Stays Together”   

You can pick up a copy of their split with Sonance here and digital tracks are available as a “Name your Price” download here
