Black Tongue “Eclipse” Your Ideas of Sludgewave


Black Tongue - Born Hanged / FalsifierEarlier this month I proclaimed that “Falsifier” by Black Tongue was the heaviest thing you’d hear on the Internet that day. I stand by that statement.

“Eclipse,” their latest, the video for which premiered on Metal Injection, might be the heaviest thing you hear today too… although I can’t say I’m as into it as I was “Falsifier.” Whereas the latter was more in the mold of Morbid Angel-type heavy, just slowed the fuck down, this one veers more towards deathcore tropes we’ve all heard a million times before. I still dig it, just not as much.

Both songs come from the Born Hanged / Falsifier (Redux) album Century Media will release in September, a combo re-release of the band’s existing two EPs. Hopefully whenever these guys get around to writing new material it’ll sound more like the traditional death-metal-gone-slow stuff of “Falsifier” — I guess this kind of metal is what the kids are calling “sludgewave” these days?
