EL CERDO ~ Our Bellies Sluggish with Goat Meat (2008)

Portland sludge with the DNA of The Abominable Iron Sloth, Hauler and Maximum Mad, among others. Our Bellies Sluggish With Goat Meat is a Frankenstein's monster of different styles of sludge, sutured together in a haphazard way that welcomes infection and fever with riffs congealed into bloody abscesses. This is a vicious album, a roller coaster of hate that at times borders on powerviolence before plunging into the misery of doomcore.

It's a pity there is no Bandcamp presence. I loved the music on Youtube so much that I tried contacting members of the band. Fortunately guitarist/vocalist Jayson Smith graciously came up trumps.
