The Brain Monster
Don't expect anything near objectivity here. What you are going to read now is pure worship - worship of the raw, bold, brutal energy of this downtuned, downtempo sludge.
Nightslug is a three piece band from Düsseldorf/Germany, formed in 2011. This three song demo album is their first release in the same year!!! (None of the musicians are tenderfeet though, they all are/were involved in different other bands. Some of you sludge lovers might know "Union Of Sleep".)
These three songs with a playing time of about 15 minutes altogether just seem to have the right key to my receptor cells in my ears to open the way to my brain and gain control over it. Resistance is futile. Utterly heavy and thick they crawl through my brain like a sludgy monster and here the monster spits out hellish violent doom riffs, vicious dynamic drumming and a sweet hardcore feel. Impossible to not fall in love with this bold breathtaking directness.
If your receptor cells are roughly built like mine, I highly advise you to listen to this demo as loud as possible and let this monster into your brain.
