A Deleted Symphony For The Beaten Down
Released: Sep 2001
Label: Relapse Records
New Orleans' sludge-metal scholars rain mind-bending shifts in tempo and alien time signatures on the heads of their poor listeners. Keeping up with this schizoid approach to grindcore (termed "deathgrind") is a workout only the truly nerdy, or addicted as the case may be, will have the courage to undertake. Usually when a band gets this technical (see: Dillinger Escape Plan), the intensity is lost in all the crazy math flying around. Not so with Soilent Green -- this is as sludgy as the sludgiest sludge metal ever to rise from the sludge of Nola's heavy (sludge) metal underbelly.
