DRAINLAND
AND SO OUR TROUBLES BEGAN
SOUTHERN LORD

AND SO OUR TROUBLES BEGAN is a combination re-release of two older vinyls from underground Irish sludge metal unit Drainland. This disc administers an off kilter bruising of the most viscous order, channeling the harsh tones from scene kings such as Unsane, Iron Monkey, and Raging Speedhorn with touches of post hardcore bombast and noise metal clamor (“Weakness”) to concoct dollops of this squad’s distortion-driven nihilistic nastiness (“Luxophage”). Even though this troupe blatantly wears its influences on its denim vest, Drainland’s vitriolic delivery reveals the authentic abrasiveness required to effectively broadcast genuine disdain and loathing.
