FISTULA (CLEVELAND/OHIO) Northern Aggression

Album · 2012 · Sludge/Post-metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Time Signature
Slow is overrated...

Genre: sludgecore

Most people think of sludge metal as slow and doom-laden music, but we have to remember that sludge was originally a combination of hardcore punk and doom metal. While many prominent sludge bands embrace the heavier and slower side of sludge, there are bands, like I Exist and Hard Charger, who take their sludge in a more uptempo and hardcore-oriented direction.

Fistula's latest release Northern Aggression belongs to the category of more aggressive and hardcore-informed sludge. Make no mistake, there are crushingly heavy passages, but more often than not do Fistula make use of hardcorish and crusty aggressive and uptempo passages. There are even some blastbeats and grindcore sections every now and then. The vocals are on the harsher side, consisting of angry yell, and this – needless to say – fits the primitive and aggressive sound of the music.

If you like your sludge dirty and aggressive, but still appreciate the heavy riffage, then you should give this sludgecore-attack of a release a listen.

Unlike the companion piece to this album, Lessons in Lamentation, this is not quite an unendurable. A still needlessly overlong piece of work, heavily influenced by noise and electronic effects. It feels like a noisy drone piece over most of its length, a few unsubtle peaks and valleys throughout. It doesn't really show the bands teeth much, and feels like an ambitious, but basically failed experiment.

Those high pitched noise tones can easily grate your nerves, no doubt about it. It's aggressive in that sense, but not in the sense that metal fans generally like - minimalist, sludge/noise mashups are not my thing either. Still, quite fascinating to hear once, and far better then the far less listenable Lessons in Lamentation.

So this is what experimental metal sounds like... At least, it's what Fistula think it does. Like Inverted Black Star, an anomaly in their discography, an hour long dirge of electronic laced sludge chaos, repetitive, and pretty pointless. It doesn't offer enough sonic potential to ever be something I'd revisit.

I came across this only because of the huge length, and that it was pretty obscure, so I thought why not? My patience was worn thin pretty fast and I struggled to get through it. The problem is definitely developmental. As an anomaly in their discography, it's interesting to see a band take a radically different direction in their music, like Pig Destroyer did with Natasha (who expects a 36 minute doom metal song from a grindcore band?), but here the experimentation is underwhelming, and feels completely needless. Sure, some parts are okay, but in the most part, it's just a pointless listen. Not worth a revisit anytime soon, although I will just to confirm if it's as bad as I remember it to be.
