I recently saw Barnsley's Trudger in Leeds while they were on tour with Swinelord. Their bluesy riff-laden crust was perfect in the intimate setting at The Fenton. Their earlier Motionless In Dirt EP hinted at the kind of sound they were going for, but it was with Dormiveglia that it matured. The LP came out in August via Church Of Fuck and Sell Your Soul Records on glorious blue vinyl, limited to 300 copies. It's was worth picking up for the artwork (by Ghost Dagger) alone.
1. Into The Abysmal Future
2. Become Joyless
4. Thickening Fog
5. Barren Grey
7. State Of Constant Slumber
The echoing intro too opener Into The Abysmal Future beckons you in, as Dormiveglia whirls into life. After a short burst of feedback, Trudger launch into the kind of groove and blues-laden crust hybrid that you could have otherwise only dreamt of. Underneath the low screams and cymbal-led drums, the guitars provide melody that's akin to black metal. The expansive delivery is intense but it still manages to hook you in.
You can stream Dormiveglia here:-
