"Big Business started as a two piece band composed of Jared Warren of Karp and The Tight Bros From Way Back When, and Coady Willis of Murder City Devils. Their sound has been characterized as a bombastic and frantic low end attack, marked by Warren's signature vocal delivery. The band released its first album, "Head for the Shallow", on January 25, 2005.

In late 2006, after relocating to Los Angeles, Jared and Coady both became members of The Melvins, first appearing on "(A) Senile Animal". The tour, titled "the Double-Drumming Rock for Peace tour", featured Warren and Willis playing a set as Big Business before being joined by Crover and Osborne for

BIG BUSINESS Head For The Shallow

UMUR
"Head for the Shallow" is the debut full-length studio album by US sludge metal act Big Business. The album was released through Hydra Head Records in November 2004.

It´s apparent from the opening notes of "Head for the Shallow", that Big Business are a very unique sounding act, with their distorted bass, drums and vocal dominated sound. It´s not everyday you come across a metal act where the guitar plays second violin to everything else. There´s a rather obvious Melvins influence in the music, but other than that Big Business have a pretty unique sound. The tracks are generally simple yet effective and raw. Lead vocalist/bassist Jared Warren has an extremely raw and rusty voice (the man sounds like he has swallowed rusty nails) and his vocal performance here is a great asset to the music.

There´s a nice energy in the music and the rythm section really excel in driving the music forward. There´s something irresistibly charming about Big Business and it all starts with that well playing and adventurous rythm section. The sound production is raw and powerful too, which is always great, but the actual songwriting is slightly lacking. While there are some incredibly powerful, raw and catchy tracks (and moments in other tracks) on "Head for the Shallow", the tracks aren´t always that memorable. It´s something the band would successfully improve on for their next album. It´s a minor issue though and a 3.5 star (70%) rating is still more than deserved.
