Crushing Denver, CO post-metal quartet Black Sleep of Kali patch generous shards of Mastodon and Baroness together to form a mammoth eight-track offering entitled OUR SLOW DECAY. Providing a bevy of Orange Amplifier crush, dexterity-ridden percussion, and contorted screaming group vocals, this unit displays a predilection for sludge metal tempos and tones a la Torche while keeping the overall atmosphere oppressive much like High on Fire or Black Cobra (“Eulogy”). Churning out bombastic low-end dominance with harsh Hesher overtones, Black Sleep of Kali do an admirable job of using their influences as a foundation and not a crux for their sonically serrated sound.
