PLANKS
THE DARKEST OF GRAYS/SOLICIT TO FALL
SOUTHERN LORD

Moody German sludge metal unit Planks manage to keep things both gloomy and crusty on the 16-track Southern Lord re-release of their vinyl-only affairs THE DARKEST OF GRAYS/SOLICIT TO FALL. While many other bands fro Mastodon to Converge to Coliseum employ a similar earth shaking sound and brazen attitude that this band chooses to destroy to, the method that this squad exhibits an effortless follow-through that carries between two separate releases, maintaining a cohesive crushing nature with a barrage of the ominous tones to put Planks smack dab at the heart of sludge metal meets post hardcore sect. If you like it gritty, raw, and confrontational, Planks delivers in spades with passion and aggression.
