    How is Hail!Hornet? I kind of am interested because I've seen their CD used a few times for very cheap and I'm a fan of some of the Southern sounding sludge so maybe I'd like it. Protips?

    I'm a big Fleshpress fan (earlier stuff was more stoner, not they're very bleak black/doom/sludge) but also like Malasangre, Buried at Sea (Migration rules!) and dot(.).

    Add YOB and Graves At Sea to any essential sludge list. Crowbar as well.

    Hail!Hornet is much better than I thought they would be. Worth the purchase.

    It's similar to Weedeater/etc. right?

    EDIT: Dixie Dave is Hail!Hornet's bass player.

    Well, it leaked, but yeah. I honestly think it will be a worthy contender for album of the year, it's amazing.

    I know I'm gonna get flamed for this, and I'm not even sure if they are "sludge metal", but I freakin love High on Fire.

    Don't know why some people don't like them. To me they sound like Black Sabbath on acid.

    do you consider bands like mouth of the architect sludge or post metal?

    id consider them the latter, but others disagree...

    Post-metal is such a ridiculous genre. Every single thing people label post-metal clearly belongs in genres that are well-defined, mostly sludge. Mouth of the Architect is an example of this, and a sludge band.

    I agree, MOTA and related style bands are just a more "thoughtful" kind of sludge and don't really deserve a whole new genre name.

    I have to disagree with both of you on this one. Sure bands like Isis, and MOTA have that sludge sound and influence but they are not pure sludge like Noothgrush, Grief, Fleshpress, etc.
