Slavedriver - Marauders of the Wasteland

'Marauders of the Wasteland'
Slavedriver
2014

Review by Elek Malcolm-Madill

Genre/s: Blackened Grindcore, Sludge Metal, Chaotic Hardcore
For Fans Of: Jesuit, Siberian Hell Sounds, Conan, Absolut

Starting off deceivingly slow with a soundbite declaring: "Quite an experience to live in fear isn't it? That's what it is to be a slave" Slavedriver, hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, crank out some tasty sludge-influenced tunes while also managing to keep things in the realm of grindcore/hardcore, and incorporate lots of great samples that work wonderfully with the overall production of the album and break up the segments of thrashingly fast, abrasive grind/hardcore which made it flow extremely well and was easy to listen to entirely in one sitting. Weaving in and out of thrash metal-esque guitar solos and vocals sounding like they came straight from the mutants pictured on the album cover, the outright bludgeoning weight to the songs reminded me quite a bit of Conan as, like I said with them being pretty sludge-influenced before, although not nearly as long or drawn out- this is some to-the-point, all killer no filler work that I seriously recommend checking out.
