When it comes to the South and extreme music, South Carolina doesn’t come up that much in conversations. We always hear about the NOLA scene and the influence it made to underground music scene and of course the noise brewing down in Georgia (the State that brought us Kylesa and Mastodon). But after hearing what the Palmetto State have been unleashing, I would say that South Carolina have now become heavy contenders. One of those bands that are laying waste is three-piece called Tripping The Mechanism.

To The Moth, I Am The Sun is a two-track 7” that was released back in 2018 and it sure packs punch. It opens up with ‘Dorian Grey’, which is a catchy tune with a killer riff to rock out. It has an early-90’s vibe with a sludgy tone. Then come ‘Horns’, which is the heavier of the two. Just a raw and grimy track for those who like it extreme.

If you’re familiar with Tripping The Mechanism’s other work, then you know how much they kick arse. If you haven’t, then prepare to enter Holy City Hell. With To The Moth, I Am The Sun, TTM continue to kill it. With the way they compose their music, it always hooks me and makes me want more. The 7” should still be available, so grab it before it’s gone, especially if you’re a collector. For fans of Sludge and Doom, you won’t be disappointed.
