Rwake: Rest (4.5/5)

Joshua's Top 10 Albums of 2011
#6 of 10

Year: 2011
Genre: Atmospheric Sludge Metal
Label: Relapse
TRT: 52:48

It's nice to see a band mature their sound without losing sight of who they are, and these southern sludge lords are not fucking around. While not as primal or violent as 2007's Voices of Omen, it's hardly deserving of such a sleepy title. Rwake focus more on the atmospheric side of their sound this time around, but there's still plenty of aggression to be found, and plenty of vicious grooves to be had.
