Cherkasy or in the Cyrillic langue Черкассыis is a port in Ukraine, and the city lies on the banks of the Kremenchuk dam in the river Dnieper. Cherkasy is also the port for the band uncompromising sludge metallers Celophys. With their new effort Fried Chordata, the crushing duo reminds us once again how sludge should sound like!
The added speed and aggression show the progression of the outfit and the absence of bass guitar doesn’t stop the band from creating a thick, ear-bleed aggressive sound bound to make a mark in the sonic history. Continuing to mix paleontology with weed-smoking, the distinctiveness of the band’s style becomes even more evident on Fried Chordata. There’s probably no reason why a sludge devotee should skip this!
