Unkle K's Bands of the Week

Mother Brain
Long Island's Mother Brain deliver an absolutely pulverising grind assault mixed up with some devastating, chunky-as-fuck sludge.
I've mentioned Slomatics before, but feel they need to be revisited. I first heard them on their split with the awesome Conan, where I enjoyed their output but favoured the scousers. With each release since, Slomatics have got better and better and I actually think they might have swapped positions in the UK Doom/Sludge Premier League.

Their latest 2 song epic, The Future Past is a monster. "Running Battle" lurches into a massive riff right off the bat that will have you tapping, banging and throwing the claws (see photo for a perfect example of what I mean). The second track, the brilliantly named "Son of Ampbreaker" may be even better. Highly Recommended.
