Hellcrawler - Wastelands
Hollow Earth Records
Here's something with a slight twist. There's been a lot of blackened sludge released lately but Hellcrawler bring a refreshing mixture of death metal, stoner rock, hardcore punk, and a bit of that death & roll sound recently reincarnated by the likes of Death Breath and Kvelertak. Wastelands rips and roars along with exuberant energy, dark riffage and brutal, but fun velocity. Crawling up out of the bogs of Slovenia just proves that the disaffected are making music all over the globe, which makes my ears very happy indeed.
Check out their labelmates, Robert of the Square as well, although they play a totally different blend of mathy hardcore.
