Behavior Modification Theory
Reviewer: Frank Hill
I expected some serious, boring doom from Sludge! and was completely wrong. This one took me back a few years to when I used to go see bands at a place called "The Dungeon". The music was fast, energetic and the bands always had a pissed-off attitude.
This Sludge! CD is instrumentally about as raw as you can get. No heavy production and no bullshit; just music to trash your room to with some System of a Down quirkiness in the vocals. Call it metalcore, hardcore, hatecore or whatever; an in-depth review would be a disservice to the music because its not the kind of stuff you need to overanalyze. I would have liked to have had more music to see how they sound now though.
Bottom Line: Hardcore style with weird bits.
Note: The music may be raw, but these guys are way up on the merchandise side with some Sludgendise.
