Darknight Freaking love TEL, the doominess and the sludgy metaltastic sound is just monstrous. Amazing vocals which drift from crooner into growler. Favorite track: Red Level.
JxXxL thumbnail
JxXxL Lowlife consolidates profound emotional complements in an epochal journey. It solidly reflects everyone's ephemeral existence, introduced by a depiction of self-destructing mechanisms lyrically tied in recurring mental frames. A dismal sensation of this immersed atmosphere resolves in an open field, revealing an unimaginable nuance of the initially negative appearing mentality. In the end, the unveiled truth reminds your obscured inner self that you are not on your own, you only wish to be.

Ouroboros 07:51
Submerged 06:05
Give me sunlight I want summer to return Let me rest by the stream Let me dream of love Take away the memories That are following my footsteps Can I breathe again? Can I see the sky? I’m leaving this town today and I’ll burn every bridge in my path.
Red Level 04:55
Shallow slumber bringing forth Memories of a place I wish to never return; The longest hallways with locked doors No one looks at me as I’m led to the end. My path of regrets, I always lose my way Trying to find the other side, between life or death. I let you in, you spat me out. The light is gone from my drowsy eyes. Claw at my skin, I love the sound Of the high flooding my veins, clouding my conscience. Meet me at red level, Wake me from the nightmare That my life has become. There’s a pit inside of me, festering into cold. The hair stands on my arms, even when the air is dead. Show me what it means to be gone. I let you in, you spat me out.
Choke 04:20
I bite my tongue until blood drips down my chin, gritting down on the rage that fills my being. I always catch myself becoming so choked up in these moments of distress, when I must face the end. The bliss was never real, the rush was only temporary, leaving me burnt out and cold. Isolate me from this life that part of me seeks to destroy. I always catch myself reaching out to covet that which I shall never achieve; the humanity in me is gone.
Strangers 08:43
This damned cold city, see how the stars burn out above the blur of street lights; my home is no longer yours. I banished my desires for the taste of smoke on a stranger’s broken lips, making my throat grow sore. I have become your sickness; I am what you chose to deny. When you see me walking alone, down this road we once tread along, remember my heart is drained; I can no longer be recognized. You wished for me to die, so I died a thousand times. Stand by and watch as the world swallows me whole. Oh, how I dread the sound of nobody coming back. I have become the curse; I am the venom that yearns to course throughout your veins; terminal, unable to cure. You gave me your world, so I gave you my wounds. Now taste the agony that I feel, carry on my burden forever.


Lowlife is the debut album from Sludge Doomsters TEL from Richmond, Virginia: five songs that bridge the gaps between the spacious doom of Yob, the raw sludge of Acid Bath, the progressive tendencies of Mastodon, and the sorrowful atmosphere of Katatonia. Produced by Garrett Morris (the guitarist of Windhand, who has also recorded for the likes of Cough, Bat, and Electric Wizard) and mastered by Dan Randall of Mammoth Sound Recordings (Iron Reagan, Ghoul, Cannabis Corpse, and many others)
