(also known as sludge or sludge doom)
Fire can melt metal quickly, but rust, while slow, is just as destructive.
How it sounds
Like a Hardcore band, it is so “bone” that it can not play fast.
Sometimes as if the speaker is broken. It’s basically like Punk Hardcore with Doom tempo or just slower.
Why listen to it
Because it has quite a wide range of sound.
Too slow that it looks like lava is flowing straight from hell with Lucifer himself singing with Growl vocals while surfing on the hot lava.
Because you got new speakers and you do not want to burn them. Sometimes it even sounds like noise.
