Hardcore Inspired Sludge Masters ALLFATHER Are Back, And Leaving Desolation In Their Wake
Allfather has been one of the more stellar bands in the UK underground for a while now so it's exciting to get to premiere their new record, And All Will Be Desolation. The album is officially out this Friday, September 7th on Rotting Throne.
These sludge masters are executing with a clear artistic vision behind what they do and bring a focus to the songwriting that few of their peers can claim. They are unafraid to bring in elements of everything from hardcore and doom to thrash metal. There is a girthy terror to the quality of the guitar tone and the massive attack showcased on tracks like "By Sword, By Famine, By Plague." It's rare to find a band who fuse genres elegantly and who bring the pit-worthy hardcore ethos to sludge, but here we are.
The band had this to say:
‘And All Will Be Desolation’ is our love letter to classic sludge metal, thrash, hardcore and doom, combined with politically and emotionally engaging lyrics that rage as hard against injustice as they do against the inevitable tragedies of human existence. If you love heavy metal that worships the riff whilst being ambitious and unapologetically political then ‘And All Will Desolation’ is the album for you. Our riffs are riffs against fascism and if you’re against that we have four words for you: BEARDS, METAL, FUCK YOU.
