Mouth of the Architect
Continuing on with my Sludge collection, here is Mouth of the Architect. Here is Quietly, released July 22, 2008 this is a great addition to any sludge collection. MOTA is a atmospheric/progressive sludge act that reminds me of Neurosis, Isis, and Pelican (which by the way, if anyone can put up an Isis and Pelican album I would be grateful). It's basically like Neurosis, only with better vocals. Anyway, Mouth of the Architect bring on a wonderful album here, the music often begins smooth and escalates into a sludgy monster. It's really great what these guys do. These guys hail from Ohio, they sing about despair, relationships, depression, and love. Which might not sound too appealing to the average sludge fan, but trust me, this shit is just as destructive and heavy.
I also offer up a live recording of MOTA, and the Mouth of the Architect/Kenoma split, and finally The Ties That Blind. Enjoy.
