With both feet slogging through heavy ancient tar but reaching for the cosmos, bands like Inter Arma, Schammasch, Thou, North, Sumac, Almyrkvi, and Bölzer are converging from across the metal universe to craft a humongous, titanic new sonic beast. Roots brings you on a galactic tour of this newly emerging thick, heavy sludge metal. Know your Roots!
