Arabrot -


Fittingly named after a waste dump outside the small west-Norwegian town of Haugesund, Arabrot are the sonic embodiment of the stygian filth that festers within it. The dirge of sludge metal is reduced down to murderous shards of noise-rock minimalism that alludes to Shellac covering The Melvins. Boasting a thunderous rhythm section that barely can contain the mayhem of scathing guitar lines and caustic, tortured vocals, Arabrot may be heavy on the malice, but they’re definitely heavy on the groove… and 400 times louder, dirtier and more disgustingly heavy in the flesh.
