Swiss sludge-metal group The Crotals have recently shared a new track titled “La Horde”, off the band’s impending second full-length album “Horde”, due out on September 7th via Tenacity Music.
“There was a glorious time when sludge metal, particularly in Europe, stretched against the limits of tone, melody and rhythm the same way that post-hardcore did at the same time in America. This brief period of time, roughly from the early aughts until around 2012, birthed bands like Knut, America’s Keelhaul, and the sorely-missed Burst. Switzerland’s The Crotals deliver a furious throwback to that sound in an overall abbreviated and adrenaline-fueled package on their upcoming second album, Horde”
Featuring guest performances from members of The Giant Robots, Sludge, Samael and Moonraisers, “Horde” is set for release on CD and LP on September 7th via Tenacity Music. Pre-orders are now available at this location.
