“…a delicious mix of sludge, with a hint of hardcore and doom. A pulsing bass courtesy of Greg Peel undergirds the impenetrable riffs, while Dan Harrington’s anguished vocals command your focus.” — The Sludgelord
“…super-slow-mo suffering…” — Hellbound
“For the doom and sludge nerds out there, this record is like a godsend. With just seven inches of wax these bands say more than almost all of their peers. In a crowded genre it is reassuring to have something so unabashedly heavy and balls-out devastating to point to and say, ‘That – that is the sort of heaviness that I love.’” — Two Guys Metal Reviews
FISTULA’s split seven-inch with Come To Grief, as well as their recently issued split with –(16)- , serves as the first wave of an ongoing split seven-inch series celebrating FISTULA’s twenty years of sonic misery.
“2018 marks the twentieth anniversary of this band,” relays FISTULA vocalist Dan Harrington, “and we wanted to do something different. We reached out to old friends and the very artists who helped inspire us to create this kind of music to release a series of split EPs. The split seven-inches with Come To Grief and -(16)- are now available, a split with Hemdale will be available during our May tour dates with Come To Grief and split twelve-inches with Buzzov*en and Fister will be released towards the end of the year. We also look forward to touring the UK and Europe in the fall with our Italian brothers Grime.”
Each limited edition seven-inch is available in various color variants. The Come To Grief / FISTULA split is also available on cassette. To order, visit THIS LOCATION.
