SONS OF TONATIUH To Bring Their Sonic Sludge To The Stage

Following a short run of live dates at the close of the Summer, SONS OF TONATIUH will again bring their slow-roasted sludge sorcery to the stage as the Parade Of Sorrow Tour 2012 lives on! Set to commence October 11, 2012 in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, the band will drag their audio ruckus through 15 cities including a stop on the Southwest Terror Fest, a two-day auditory assault organized by Arizona sludge terrorists Godhunter.

 

SONS OF TONATIUH unearthed their Parade Of Sorrow full-length through Hydro-Phonic Records this Summer. Recorded in Athens, Georgia by Kyle Spence of Harvey Milk, the record continues to harvest praise from fans and critics alike for its raw, angst-stricken method of dirge. Skulls N Bones commended the record for having “a heaviness of its own,” Exclaim likened the songs to “sinking in quicksand, but they evoke panicked thrashing rather than resigned, churning misery,” Broken Beard notes that Parade Of Sorrow “is every bit the Eyehategod worship as their self-titled debut, and yet they’ve squeezed this throbbing new pustule so hard there is pus and blood bursting out all over the place,” while Metal Maniacs called it “infectious — plain and simple.” Sea Of Tranquility agreed comparing Parade of Sorrow to “…a head-on-collision between early Black Sabbath and Eyehategod,” and This Is Not A Scene dubbed it “…a savagely aggressive, sonically belligerent album that is among the rawest to emerge from the southern USA in the last decade…”
