Hydromedusa heaps cult tape release

Posted by Lachlan

Hydromedusa cassette tapeHydromedusa are a killer new doom and stoner rock band from South Australia.  They have a fancy new cassette tape out.

You should:

Hydromedusa exploded onto Australia’s stoner/doom scene in 2011 with their stunning self-titled debut album. With the CD-version of their album already sold out, Art As Catharsis is very pleased to print a limited run of 100 cassette tapes. The tapes are professionally dubbed, with DIY digitally printed artwork and inserts.

Hydromedusa's brand of blues-tinged sludge metal is marked by a psychedelic streak, dark downtempo detours into passages of heavy doom and bursts of high-energy rocking stoner tunes.

Fans of Witchcraft, Church of Misery, Space Bong, Looking Glass and Graveyard - check it out!

DOWNLOAD: LOG – LOG’s Second Album

Posted by Lachlan

LOG - LOG's Second AlbumLOGare an experiment in excessive, down-trodden heaviness: their lumbering stoner grooves are infused with monolithic slabs of thick, de-tuned sludge. At their height LOG were one of the heaviest and catchiest party bands on the face of the earth – an unholy marriage of Blood Duster, Eyehategod, Weedeater and highly sexualised high-energy rock and roll.

Let the wild, unbridled energy of LOG’s sludge doom rock kick your next party into a blood orgy of swinging slam dancing and intense sexual thrusting. You will not regret it.

So download this shit, fool. This is heaviest, classiest sludge you are ever going to hear – AND IT’S FREE!

LOG’s Second Album was recorded in Sydney in 2002 and originally released through Highbeam Music in 2003. Nowdays LOG’s members are now scattered across the Australian stoner highlights Looking Glass and Pod People, as well as Boonhorse, Veebees, Disavow and Shifter.
