Feel Petrified, Be Petrified!
At a time where the music landscape gets back to it’s basics in some sections and time-honored, mighty riffs à la Tony Iommi are not any longer notorious “stuck in the mud”,the four piece SLOMIND from Duesseldorf, Germany tears up the Stoner Rock/Metal Genre with a big dose of distortion, fuzzy guitars and heavy beats!
Initially intended to be an instrumental band! But while recording the debut EP “Grown Against The Grain” singer Patrick Pagliaro entered the studio accidentally…
Patrick says:”As I heard what Tott (Guitars) and Tobi (Bass) banned on tape I was super stoked and had to record some vocal takes for the track “Exhale The Vile” immediately! I was waiting for very long time for such an opportunity”!
Said, Done! The decision to go on with a singer just took a few seconds and now all 5 tracks of the EP are refined with a nearly unconventional voice to this music!
SLOMIND fill a gap in the Stoner Genre and combine traditional with the vibe of the
nineties/early 2000s! Pledges to acts like DOWN or even the TRUCKFIGHTERS are slightly there but besides heaviness and gloom all songs are united by memorable hooklines and make the band still EARTHY but CATCHY!!!
