Genres: Punk, Hardcore, Sludge (sometimes), Mathcore (sometimes), Post-rock (sometimes)
"SLOTHS are a band from Portland OR, that plays heavy music with a wide range of influences. The music is at once sludgey and slow, fast and discordant, melodic and occasionally mathy. Each of the 3 members brings a different set of influences and sounds to the band. Formed in 2010. "
"A band from Portland" doesn't really narrow down things too much. Still digging this stuff. Wander over to their bandcamp, and give it a listen. The title track is just ambience, but the other three songs are tight and have their own feel. I am kind of getting lost in the album art....
