The Abominable Iron Sloth - `The Abominable Iron Sloth'

Discs: 1
Label: Undergroove (UK)/Goodfellow (US)

I will open with a shocking statement - I don't particularly like sludge metal. Some of it can be okay, but a lot of it... Overlong, not as heavy as it thinks it is, and ultimately overly repetitive and dull. The Abominable Iron Sloth are here to put an end to crap sludge metal. The songs are short, (not so) sweet, and groovy and complex as hell. The perfect remedy!

The album clocks in at just about half an hour - With only one song pushing over 4 minutes, TAIS do not **** around. They'd rather just give you a straight-up beating with their low hitting nastiness. Despite how heavy this CD is though, it never loses it's sense of fun, which is evident in it's song titles (favourite: `Parasite Hilton And Other Flaws Inherent To Wealth') and lyrics (favourite: `When you're spoonfed bull**** from day one / You're not gonna know sugar when it finally comes'). It's groovy as hell too... Try not to nod your head to `Hats Made Of Veal...' or `The Family That Slays Together...'. Here's a track-by-track run down;

1. `Hats Made Of Veal And That New Car Scent' (3:15)
My personal introduction to the band, and an insanely groovy opener. Features some stunning breakdowns, but never fails to be both complex and insanely catchy.
9/10

2. `I'd Rather Die Than Fly' (2:51)
A smouldering ambient intro leads into a vicious scream and another funky riff. More of the same... But that's what's good about this album. It's a good thing to be the same as.
8/10

3. `I Am The Carcass' (2:32)
Not much more to say here either. Stick with this, seriously...
8/10

By Macaw Youlle on 29 Jun. 2006

I can't believe that I'm the first person to write a review for this album. AIS deserve popularity with the metal-junkie public.The album kicks off with "Hats made of veal and that new car scent", which you think sounds like a joke, but as soon as the pummeling, mid-paced riff melts your speakers you know this is seriously BIG. In the opener the band show they aren't afraid of using experimental rhythms and time signatures and discordant harmonies. However they aren't just doing this for the sake of it and the music still has an irresistable stomp to it. This is topped by the most anguished, liver vomiting vocals I have ever heard. The induvidual players obviously have stellar musicianship but it is in their ensembleplaying that they show their talent best. The listener can tell that the musicians know each other's styles inside out and the they really, well, work together. Every track is crushingly heavy and the pace isn't thrash metal, but AIS still manage to create contrast amongst their songs. "I am the carcass" and "climax of a nightmare" owe mainly to hardcore whereas "a hot pink shell of my former self" is utterly progressive, an emotional rise-and-fall, almost neurosis inspired song. There is also a (slightly) light hearted moment with "parasite hilton and other flaws inherent to wealth" with the repeated lyric Run Slut Run. Need I say more? I reccomend this album to anyone who likes stuff like meshuggah, will haven, neurosis and all hardcore if you have an open mind. I think the only flaw is that it is a little short - nine songs of average 3 and a half minutes each. But, to be honest when its this good i couldn't care less.

CHUNKY! SLUDGY! MUDDY! MUCKY! ABOMINABLY SLOTHY! 17 July 2006
By C. Boyd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Yes, yes, yes. It's not the most complex music out there, but MAN DOES IT KICK YOU RIGHT IN THE CRINKLY-WRINKLY! Sick, painful grooves and murderous vocals. I enjoy this CD more than most i've purchased recently! For fans of sludge! I wish that there was more music like this out there! Perfectly heavy and painfully delicious! Buy it now and thank me later.

ONE OF THE HEAVIEST BANDS...EVER!!! 16 Jun. 2009
By C. Nevin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have heard that this band is over but the mastermind behind the Sloth is forming another band that crushes like this one.
If you want something that's like a cross between CROWBAR and IRON MONKEY, then buy this CD. It is slow killing Sludge with downtuned guitars and it clamps down tight like a Pitbull on crack.

This is one of the heaviest bands that ever exsisted!

Absolutely crushing 14 Dec. 2011
By elguaposweater - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Every track is metal at its finest. This is one of the bands I discovered on internet radio that kept turning my head. I would be listening passively as tracks from various other bands in the genre passed by my ears, but when the Abominable Iron Sloth came along, I would be immediately drawn in. This is a must have album for fans of sludge metal. I only wish it had more tracks. However, there is no wasted space on the album. Unlike some bands that fill an album with a few good songs and fill out the list with rubbish, this self-titled album by AIS is packed full of delicious ear candy.
