RAW BIRTH RECORDS / ALWAYS NEVER FUN RECS.
METH DRINKER is a fairly new band to the scene. They started back in 2010 and hail
from Wellington, New Zealand. These guys play a very spaced out Sludge / Doom Metal
style of music. The music is done in a really raw and D.I.Y. style of drawn out dirty Sludge /
Doom Metal. These guys reminded me of a lot of the bands from the early 90's playing this
style. The music is a bit dark and gritty feeling as well. I liked that they have an old school
Punk Rock vibe, back when all the Punk bands were putting out their releases on vinyl. I
know it sounds weird to say that I really like this sound in todays digital media world, but I
grew up with bands doing this so I kind of miss those days. METH DRINKER sound a
little like they are skitzo lunatics in a nut house, just wailing on their instruments. I loved it!
If you took BLACK SABBATH, from day one and added a darker more grueling sound
and a bit more noise and chaos then slowed it down you'd get a good idea of what METH
DRINKER is about. These guys won't be for everyone & I'm not the biggest Sludge
/ Doom Metal fan, but I loved these guys. Some really raw D.I.Y. old school Sludge with
Punk Rock influences. Check these guys out!
