Robotic Empire

5 Stars

Sludge pop? Dirge pop? Stoner pop? Hardly matters. This is totally kick-ass stoner sludge pop! Try to imagine the Melvins mixed with the Foo Fighters and you’ll get a rough idea. Massive downtuned metal riffs, stoner rock slowed way down, and then wrapped in pop hooks and perfect harmonies. Ultra catchy sing songy melodies draped over pummeling dirges, like Christmas lights strung over a tar pit.
