Crushing riffs are in abundance on the debut EP from Swedish multi-instrumentalist Mattias Häggström Gerdt, going under the name Oarfish. HE has just released five instrumental sludge/doom/metal tracks to really crew with your senses. While at times drifting into post-rock territory, the music quickly coats over in a foggy choking gas ball of thick grungy riffs and penetrating time changes that keep you on the uneasy edge of your seat the whole time.
Give yourself over to the power of Oarfish for an uncomfortably heavy half an hour. You won’t regret it.
