Irish sludge group Somatics just released a video for the new track "Electric Breath." The song is taken from the band's forthcoming album "Future Echo Returns," which will be released in September via Black Bow Records on vinyl and compact disc.
Pre-order "Future Echo Returns" over here. The band also commented on the new track: "This song encapsulates a lot of the themes we covered on the album - evolution, otherness and destiny. Our intention is to combine nihilism with euphoria, so if there's anyone out there who feels particularly happy about our doomed fate, then we wrote this song for you." More...
Black Bow Records is pleased to announce that doom/fuzz/sludge rockers Slomatics will release new album "Future Echo Returns" on September 2nd, 2016. Pre-orders are online now at this location. Black Bow also comments:
"Whilst the tide has come in and gone out and come in again on the shores of heavy music, Slomatics have patrolled the surf, unmoved by the shifting sands, unflinching in their dedication to tone and riff. True pioneers of what we call sludge and doom, blending elements of psychedelic rock, conjuring images of overgrown celestial bodies marshalled by undiscovered extraterrestrial entities. Name any heavy band from the last ten years and you will find Slomatics as a crucial ingredient in their own primordial soup, whether they are listed as an influence or not. Essential, irreplaceable, impeccable and peerless heavy music. Influenced by the past, here in the present, echoing a vision of the future..."
The band had this to say: "We're really excited about the new album. It's the final part of the three album sequence we started with A Hocht, and hopefully brings together all the aspects we've touched on with that record and Estron. This one is more of everything, and feels like our heaviest and most diverse so far. The narrative of the previous two records ends with this one, so there's a sense of finality throughout. We were delighted with the recording process both in Skyhammer and StartTogether, and trust us, if there was an amp or synth in either studio, it's on this record." More...

Now signed to Black Bow Records, Slomatics has a new disc of epic sludgy doom coming your way in the spring of 2016. Before that upcoming album lands, the Irish group is re-releasing earlier material to the metal masses who may have missed those smaller scale releases when they first dropped.
Before the band had recruited current drummer / vocalist Marty, Slomatics focused more on the instrumental aspects with debut full-length "Flooding the Weir" all the way back in 2005. The re-issue version of that album is slated to land this Friday, November 20 via Black Bow, but today we're hosting a stream of the release in full!
Label owner Jon Davis (also of doom band Conan) comments on the group's first full-length: "This is the album that started my obsession with Slomatics back in 2005. I listen to this album at least once a day."
Belfast doom band Slomatics has issued its third album "A Hocht" on Head Of Crom and on CD by Burning World/Roadburn Records. The band is streaming two songs from it over on Bandcamp. You can also check out those two songs, "Beyond Acid Canyon" and "Return to Kraken," from the eight song album below. Slomatics formed in Late 2004 and to date the band has released two full length albums, three split CDs, a split 12", a 7" and a cassette. They have also recorded a session for BBC Radio 1, and were featured on the cover CD for Rock Sound magazine.
