As Negative Black, the third LP from Germany’s sludge juggernaut BLACK SHAPE OF NEXUS, nears its release via Exile on Mainstream, the entire album is streaming via the online kingpins of the doom/stoner scene, The Obelisk, RIGHT HERE.
Surging with eighty minutes of BLACK SHAPE OF NEXUS‘ own brew of some of the most down-tempo sludge metal on the planet, Negative Black marks a new step for the band, carving a path into their foreseeable future. While the outfit already bears the reputation for unfurling some of the most destructive but still coherently-flowing sludge metal available, incorporating outside elements of crust, black metal and soundscape persuasion at times, Negative Black surges to even deeper caverns of auditory obliteration, pummeling you with painfully slow doom and finishing you off with acrid, harsh drones, and giving down-tempo a whole new meaning.
