Boston two-piece Olde Growth are a gargantuan, pulverizing tour de force of raw energetic sludge metal that combines infectious groove with elements of space and psych rock. The band's sound is a sonically charged wall of rolling, crushing sound. The band features Stephen LoVerme (bass / vocals) and Ryan Berry (drums), but the sound it delivers is thick enough to make you think they have an army behind them pummeling away (think Electric Wizard, Sleep, Kyuss and Neurosis but with a sound all its own).

Several years in the making, Olde Growth's self-titled debut weighs in with thick, heavy slabs of sludge, raw brutal energy, monolithic riffs and vocals that run the gamut from piercing screams to soft, nuanced and melodic. Amplifier drone fills the gaps between cuts which, massive like the Redwood giants, block out the sun and engulf all that lies within the radius of their shadow. Olde Growth creates music that evokes the awe inspiring relics of the natural world - giant trees that span millennia, jagged, snow-capped mountains that only the bravest of souls attempt to scale, oceans who's mysterious depth are as alien as the most imaginative worlds out of science fiction.
