Rodha - Raw

Review by Aaron Sullivan.

Hailing from Hamburg Germany comes the sludgy sounds of Rodha. Sludge that is just how I like it. Slow and low. Guitars ooze out the buzzy crunch that make up the riffs. Bass maintaining the heaviness at all times while the drums stomp. The vocals add a touch of Hardcore that is a nice addition, and conveys the emotions of the lyrics in a way not always found in this genre. The album is aptly titled. The recording has a rawness to it but more important the emotions contained within the lyrics are raw. You get the feeling these are not just words to be sung, but to be felt.

A really good demo from band putting their twist on an established genre. A twist that helps set them apart from the rest.
