Belgian sludge/doom collective Modder has just revealed the leading single off their self-titled debut album, which is scheduled for release on December 3rd through Lay Bare Recordings and Consouling Sounds.
The band started out as a passion project between guitarist, songwriter, and producer Mathlovsky and his longtime companion Gregory Simons on drums. In November 2020 they released their massive first single ‘Mudslinger’, which is an impressive 21-minute long riff-fest referencing artists like Sleep and Mastodon.
Following the release of ‘Mudslinger’ bass player Maurice van der Es, guitarist Maxime Rouquart and synth wizard Simon Felix joined the duo to extend the sonic mayhem into a tight and pounding live band. Despite being completely new in the scene they have already managed to score a spot at this year’s edition of Desertfest Belgium.
Modder is determined to climb that long and hard ladder to get their name known outside their homeland and is now ready to release their self-titled debut album due out in early December via Lay Bare Recordings & Consouling Sounds. The record’s sonic palate consists of riffs that are designed to make your neck break, supported by thundering bass lines and grooving drums. Surrounded by industrial samples and synths they forge a unique sound in the sludge landscape that Modder finds themselves in. Pre-orders are now available here.
