Back together and stronger than ever, Illinois stool specialists return with a brand new downloadable ep that promises to make you turn brown after listening to it.  Slough combine insane chaotic beats via drum machine, industrial sounds, distorted bass, guitar and guttural vocals.  Lyrics from making stools to serial killers, insanity and I love it.  My interview forthcoming with Sick Rick.  Slough began in 1994 and has gone on several hiatuses through the years and hopefully this will garner them a much needed record deal, as well as their past material being remastered and put on a double cd, really their past catalog is also amazing.  I’ve always loved their take on the grindcore genre and their willingness to push the boundaries of perversion to coincide with their lyrics/music.  Love ‘em or hate ‘em they are pretty original and this ep will lop your head off, while you stand across the street, at your local food mart, as you purchase your slurpee and hotdog.  Watch the carnage ensue as God of the Cannibals come blazing through your speakers and you will then realize how brutality and catchiness can also coincide together-something Slough has always managed to do!
