Slund - The Call Of Agony Album Cover

These guys are tough. They have a skeleton on their album cover, so beware! Nah, I'm just kidding. Or am I? Not much is known about Slund. They are from Slovenia, this is apparently their debut album and it was released yesterday. Anyway, I just listened to the whole album and it's much better than I expected.

If you experience night terrors and struggle with how to get rid of nightmares, then... The Call Of Agony is not gonna help. It's pure musical terror. It's violent, vicious and intense. High-pitched screams and high-pitched growls are buried in a mess of bulky, massive guitars and bass, merely acting as another layer in a thick attack. At times it's slow, doomy and at other times it's a ultra-fast, grindcore-ish madness. I think it sounds like Eyehategod meets Mortician and Agoraphobic Nosebleed, but who knows?

There's enough going on here to make Slund's The Call Of Agony worth a listen. However, this music is definitely not for everyone; some people will get it, others don't. Consider yourself forewarned.

  1. Great review....Especially the part where you describe them as "Eyehategod meets Mortician and Agoraphobic Nosebleed".
