Nasty hardcore/sludge from New York? Well, if you insist! False Gods are a dense four piece who wield brutal groove like a rusty hammer, bludgeoning with each swing. Their five track EP ‘Wasteland’ is positively crawling with sludgy grooves and roaring hardcore influences.

Opener ‘Despot’ has that irresistable Southern groove, despite their northern home, and coupled with a caustic hardcore roar creates a scuzzy, lo fi monster with all the mournful blues of prime Sabbath and the attitude of EyeHateGod. Most successfully achieved by Black Flag, this marriage of hardcore rage and the unyielding, cloying power of sludge is a match made in heaven, and ‘Wasteland’ is another excellent example of how the two styles fit so well. Crowbar riffs rumble through a humid swamp, while the snarling vocals pour venom upon those who are captured by the music.

‘Grant Me Revenge’ has a particularly bleak fury to it, and the crumbling world feel of ‘Worship as Intellectual Tyranny’ also gives off those apocalyptic vibes. But closer ‘I Can See You for What You Truly Are’ sums up the kind of murky, savage sludgecore that False Gods have crafted here. This is nasty, violent music designed for nihilist tendencies and a love of good groove. Get this shit as soon as.
