Embrace the call of the wild sloth… Sloth. – masterminded by Blake Caverly – is gearing up to release his first album Slow As Sh*t. An aptly titled exploration of fuzz-filled riffs and leafy grooves, the album draws from the diverse doomy quarters of Bongripper, Boris and Pallbearer among others.
The tracklisting is as follows:
2. Green Sunrise
3. Waking Up
4. Call Of The Sloth
5. Nothing But Leaves
6. Awaken That Which Lies Amongst The Trees
7. Smoke ‘N’ Sleep
Slow As Sh*t is due for release on 28th September via Bandcamp.
The age of the Sloth is widely believed to have begun in around 2014AD, but many scholars still debate this today. The discovery was made by Blake Caverly when he heard its deep, sludgy call flowing down Stanmore Hill. Following it led him to the petrified remains of an ancient, giant sloth, half-buried by time. Its rigid claws were wrapped tightly around something, as if it had died trying to protect it. Blake managed to peel back the claws to find a set of Pallbearer, Bongripper and Boris CDs. Upon removal of the final CD, something awoke inside the carcass, and Blake Caverly was never the same again.
His first account of the incident is due out at the end of September, then we will finally know what really happened that night in Stanmore Forest…
