Mudslinger - _Cover the Sun_
(Lord Slog Recordings, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
Even though it may be hard to breathe at times with the air of heaviness bogging you down as Mudslinger plays on, the doom-influenced sludge machine manages to allow some breathing room as they storm through their tonnage of material. Only a bit, though. Taking some spirit from the ways of EYEHATEGOD and Soilent Green (in regards to the heavy sludge-tone), Mudslinger really digs deep into the ground to set up their attack of noisy mayhem, heard quite effectively on tracks like "Swamp" and "Lambs". The music of Mudslinger is pretty rock solid when it comes to really putting weight on the listener; it is the mediocre death-like growls that sometimes seem too pressured to reach the bowels of the earth that the music hits so effectively. A minor black mark on a disc that shows a lot of promise. I'll be spinning this for a while more till I get my hands on the new Soilent Green.
