Hello..

its been a while since you all heard from us on this crazy website thing…anyways weve been busy, did a bunch of stuff, had some emotional conversations, met some crazy/sweet/nice people…and we also did a couple of the craziest shows evah!

last night we played our last dutch show and it was really nice…corpse paint,fake blood, bikes in the pit…so alot of thanks to all our nijmegen homeys and offcourse unrest, alpinist and masakari…they are really good bands and really nice people we all reccomend them and suggest you should see them…about that last show thing..it might be true, it might not be true..i dont know it doesnt really matter we are not that good.

another good band we met in the last months and who are also total sweethearts are hammers from the UK also highly reccomended from camp Sloth..

Anyways thank you so much to all the great bands/people/travelling punk kids/cooks/and the crazy dance action…we love it.

next week we leave to Czech to play the tent stage on Fluff and we play Dresden on the thursday before that(im to lazy to check the dates)

we have some merch left..if you ask dave you’ll get it for free if you ask me or sascha we charge 8 euros ( i cant be bothered to upload some pictures..instead theres some pictures of us from last night)

 

Thanks XX

Back from the north!

Hej Punks,

A week ago we came back from our crazy trip trough Scandinavia and Germany with our lovely friends of Tyrannicide.

Endless amounts of love and thanks to all our friends who helped us out, and the people that came to our shows. thanks for all the nice talks, walks around city, endless creativity and work that people put into their (local) scene and places, amazing food(we had everything from Sushi till Soy-junkfood), midnight playground fun, freeshop madness…thanks for going crazy and keeping it punk!

Tyrannicide is amazing and they might look grumpy but they are a bunch of sweethearts.

 

Summer is coming stay posi, stay vegan!

“are there any sloths in the house?”

so in the middle of februari we did a couple of shows…

we played a pretty strange show in Strasbourg with Dope DoD..620 people showed up..not for us though.

we also played in Aken and slept in Nicks parents house and had alot of fun with there furniture and photos of Nick when he was younger.

We played in Solingen which was fun but not that much stuff happend…our friends showed up which was fun, and we got sweet potato soup..also fun!

Erik turned 29 and Sascha dressed up as a a bag of french fries on our show in Nijmegen.

and on our final show we played an anti carnaval festival and sascha dressed up as a bag of fries..again.

thanks to all the people that helped us again and gave us food, made us laugh, kept us awake and so on..also it was a pleasure to see and rock with finisterre and boredom again..punk is love.

we go on tour next month with Tyrannicide, they are our really good friends so if you see a grey van driving around sweden/norway/danmark with 7 people in it who are having fun…say hi!

review on our split with landverraad..it sais we have a 90s sound.

Hey yall..

my friend BA from a small town in Holland emailed me this today…

its a review about our split we did with landverraad, its done by Tom and this is his website. http://onepathforme.blogspot.com

thanks Tom!

we also like piledrivers!

_________________________________________________________________________________

 

Landverraad and Sloth are two bands from Holland. The artwork (to the left) may have you a little confused and not taking this split too seriously, but never judge a book by it’s cover. The songs on this split are angry and well articulated.

Landverraad has a very pissed off hardcore sound which ranges everywhere from super fast to slow and bruiting. The vocals are a bit high-pitched and very relentless. Lyrically you get a good idea of what this band is about with lots of focus on critiquing religion, politics and institutional oppression. “Darkest of Thoughts” is an interesting lyrical detour, focusing on mental illness and instability, it’s done quite well.

Sloth brings you some heavy down tuned hardcore that is reminiscent to me of some 90’s hardcore mixed with a bit of something darker. I like the way this is mixed and recorded. It has such a dense sound to it which adds to the “piledriver” effect of their music. The bass tone is especially nice. Lyrically, Sloth doesn’t pull any punches. There is no abstraction here…they want you to know what they are about. The track “Go Vegan Go” is a brief, but concise example of how this band can lay out it’s stance.

I found myself enjoying the Sloth side a bit more here due to the darker and denser sound. I definitely hope both of these bands have a long future in front of them.
