Since 2009, these three guys from Hamburg have been working on their blend of doom, sludge, post metal and stoner rock. Beginning in 2011, they've regularly hit the stages to preview what was to come with their first full-length album, which was finally released in April 2012. Backed by positive feedback from various well known blogs, and with new songs up their sleeves, they began playing the clubs across Germany, broadening their fan base among fans of Neurosis, Omega Massif, Ufomammut or Entombed with every show."

Shakhtyor Streaming Entire Album

German three piece doom/sludge band Shakhtyor has been streaming its self-titled four-song album over on Bandcamp. The band writes its logo in Cyrillic, which translates into "miner" in Russian - a term that describes their slow and hard sound. Guitarist Christian has a fascination with Russia ever since he visited some of his former university flatmates in St. Petersburg. The guitarist and bassist of Shakhtyor knew each other from another Hamburg band they were in. After that band split up in 2008, they formed Shakhtyor. Stream all four tunes from the album below.
