What Happens When You Multiply Sludge By Math? Thefalls Happens

So we know that there is new Ion Dissonance on the horizon and this is a great thing because they bring the chaotic, probing assault of math metal like no other. There’s something else really fun happening now with an influx of really creative post-metal bands trying their hand at grim, sludge like sounds. I need not name names. As a big fan of crushing atmosphere and jarring chugs, I’ve often sat scratching my bald patch wondering whether these two styles could mesh and systematically implode brain cells with the power of music; you know the feeling, that moment where you hear something that leaves your mouth agape and your eyes glazed over. Well fuck me, Thefalls released an album that did this over a year ago.
