In 2013 Ross Honour (Guitar) and James Murphy (Guitar/Vocals/Drum Programming) joined forces with the aim of creating the most pulverising expression of brutal death metal’s twisted and ugly art form. They named their warped child Slob and took the first steps along the path to the Deepwoods Shack Of Sodomy. Listening to the finished album is like being immersed in a truly horrific film; the sadistic assaults of the songs bound together by sound bites that demonstrate a black humour bordering on the psychotic, while the sounds of the titular deep woods enfold the sickening drama in unnerving tension. For those dedicated to the extreme Slob deliver an electric shock to the slumbering senses, while the unwary listener will find their skin crawling and future nightmares hatching in the unexplored recesses of their mind. Songs like ‘ Wrong Turn ’ and ‘ Pitchfork Puncture Wounds ’ don’t stand on ceremony, they simply tear you limb from limb.
Comatose Music , no doubt with a nasty little snigger, will unleash this storm of perversion and terror into the world on March 4th , signalling the label’s ongoing dedication to the most brutal sounds around. Despite 2022 still being in its infancy it’s hard to imagine the next twelve months offering up a more savage and unforgiving album than Deepwoods Shack Of Sodomy. Be careful where you wander, because somewhere between the trees Slob are waiting...and in the shack no-one can hear you scream.
