Sludge doom EARTHBONG "Bong Rites"


Sludge doom EARTHBONG "Bong Rites"

A massive hour-long doped-out heavy stash of riffs with ghoulish vocals meant to haunt your smoke-out and have you running for safety. But you can't escape the pull of the doom and the sludge as they create a black hole of heaviness from which there is no return. Pack your bowls and give yourself into "Bong Rites" from EARTHBONG:

"Goddamn High" is so heavy it's almost exhausting, and when it's done after 15 minutes, you try to pull yourself out of the dank hole it's sucked you into, but this album is only getting started. You still have 45 more minutes of heavy music. 

"Weedcult Today" opens with a reminder to re-pack your bowl and re-charge your mind before continuing on this journey into madness and heaviness. It starts off much slower than the opening track, and plods along with a foreboding riff that makes me worry what is in store me. The answer arrives about half way in as the ghoulish growls return, and brain pounding cranks into high gear. 

"Monks Blood" is the final song, and it's as long as both of the previous songs combined. This one wastes no time with a slow build-up, but instead fires an opening salvo of riffs meant to subdue your will before your mind can offer any resistance. Earthbong confidently sails this 30-minute mindfuck across the dirty waters of dread, leaving you stranded somewhere in the bogs of sludge and doom with the only option being to hit the replay button and experience "Bong Rites" all over again.
