DROWNING ROOM: Catharsis: CD

I guess Drowning Room could be described as crusty anarcho punk hunkering up to the edge of sludge metal, kind of like lava that has cooled into big, lumbering chunks, but still runs fast and is hot as fuck. Listening to these four tunes made me feel like I had been beaten to a pulp by a giant troll with a land-shattering mallet, doused in venom and sulfur, and then beaten by the troll twice more for good measure while gremlins scrubbed my wounds with cinders. Well worth my time. –The Lord Kveldulfr (Trip Machine Laboratories)
