A few years ago, Svbterranean’s previous incarnation American Aftermath decided to put out a couple of free digital sludge compilations titled Summer of Sludge and Autumn Annihilation. These compilations compiled some of the best and heaviest sludge, doom, post-metal, what have you, acts around and were extremely fun and rewarding to put together.
Since summer is here once again, and Svbterranean has yet to dip its toes into the comp game, we decided to resurrect these loud series of comps. So now we proudly present Summer of Sludge Volume One; the first in a series of three digital compilations that will be released in each of the summer months. We hope that these comps will highlight the best of what the underground doom and sludge scenes have to offer, and turn on you miscreants to some new, earsplitting music. Why go outside and enjoy the sun when you can enjoy devastatingly heavy tunes for hours on in?
Below you will find the official track listing and stream of the compilation via Bandcamp. Once all free Bandcamp downloads are used up for the month, an alternative download link can be found here. Remember, if you dig any of the artists featured on these compilations, please be sure to support them in any way you can.
Summer of Sludge Volume Two will be released during the first week of July.
