Last month I reviewed an album by the American band The Midnight Ghost Train. In the review I said that sludgy rock is one of my favorites. And now, at the end of March, the band Mammoth Mammoth will be releasing their fourth album. I won’t go over the sludge rock again, but ‘Volume IV: Hammered Again’ is one of those rock records.
One of my favorites is the kind of dark, grooving and sometimes almost sludgy riffs that some bands manage to create so well. Not really the death and doom metal kind of sludgy and dark, but more like the stoner-rock kind of music.
Bands like Graveyard, Witchcraft and The Midnight Ghost Train manage to take this sound and do amazing things with it. That’s exactly what happens on ‘Cold Was The Ground’, the new record of the American band The Midnight Ghost Train.
