Michael Henaghan Massive rolling riffs and lurching basslines propel Motherslug's 2012 LP. This one will hit fans of Sleep, Acrimony and Kyuss where it hurts. No pretension and no bullshit, just an excellent album. Tracks such as 'Three Kings In Darkness' and 'Trippin On Evil' add a metallic and bluesy edge to proceedings, while the galloping 'Symptoms' and 'Rollin' hark back to the mid 90's desert sound Favorite track: Symptoms.

Colin M. Some great stoner metal with some pretty aggressive vocals and some catchy, big riffs. As an aside, I did a double take at first because Cam's vocals sound just like Johnny Throckmorton's work in Alabama Thunderpussy (a good thing!) Favorite track: Three Kings In Darkness.

Héctor Hurtado Grooscors Oh what a wonderful surprise, I grab this thanks to a download code the label share on Facebook. I tought it was sludge metal, my least favorite subgenre from the heavy scene, but in fact Motherslug plays some very good stoner metal.

released June 28, 2015

Australia's Motherslug is a Stoner/Doom band with similarities to many bands of the genre, namely Kyuss, Sleep, Sabbath. However, the band isn't content to sit back on their asses and ride the Riff into oblivion without adding substance. The lyrical content heard within is persuasive, witty, and intuitive; that says a great deal considering most Doom bands hold tight to death and misery, so much so that it easily becomes boring. Heavy handed dirges flow like blood from an open wound throughout this entire album. Further adding to the mystique are the psychedelic nuances that bring to mind the tentacles of our lord, Cthulu, the Mummies Tomb & midnight tales of yore. Not to mention the musicianship is second to none. Rhythmically, Motherslug might have the best rhythm section going in Doom right now with bass riffs in great abundance! Vocally, it doesn't get much better, Slug's vocalist Cam, nails every note without even trying. This album is must hear for fans of the Doom/Stoner genre; if you want it heavy, Motherslug weighs a FUCKING TON!....Review By : Black Angel

Track Name: Trippin' On Evil
When it's dead I feel so heavy
Punishment, it's so steady
The poison's red, the blood of many
The hunger's dead cos she's not ready

I feel so heavy

Inside my head, is hollow and empty
The skin is shed, the meaning is buried
The rider is bled, but it's not me
The hunger's dead cos she's not ready

I feel so heavy
Track Name: Three Kings In Darkness
Deep in the forest of the darkness Kings
Deep in the fire of the glimmering
Gonna raise my herbs as a gods offering
I hear the echo while the spirit takes wing
Sent by the gods on a quest to kill
Raise power undead under hill
Gonna swing my blade and blood will spill
Chained to a grave summon demons at will

Darkness is all
Three kings in darkness lie
Darkness is all
Gutheran of Org and I
Darkness is all
'Neath the bleak and sunless sky
Darkness is all
The third beneath the hill must lie

As the dead rise to swallow me whole
I take my blade and I steal their soul
Through the hall the blind man leads
To my lady, from the whip she bleeds
As the Prince and the Minstrel fight
Treachery has doomed their plight
From the blood spilt the Hill King rise
To the fire without soul he dies

Fire purifies all
Three kings in darkness lie
Fire purifies all
Gutheran of Org and I
Fire purifies all
'Neath the bleak and sunless sky
Fire purifies all
The third beneath the hill must lie
