Considered by many, critics and fans alike, to be Australia's leading representatives in the world of doom metal. It's not hard to see why with albums like this under their belt! Lord Of The Deep is more than just an apt name for the album, it's a pretty appropriate phrase to describe Clagg themselves.
Favorite track: Devour the Sun.
Since 2002, CLAGG have cast blackened clouds of hateful sludge metal over Australia. Years of playing live around the country have seen CLAGG share the stage with Electric Wizard (UK), Dismember (Sweden), Acid King (USA), Coffins (Japan) and Monarch (France). CLAGG‘s third album LORD OF THE DEEP follows Let the Galaxy Burn (2005) and Where Dead Gods Sleep (2007).
OBSIDIAN RECORDS is proud to get behind one of our nation’s top acts as we re-release CLAGG – LORD OF THE DEEP after the initial pressing has since sold out. This addition comes with an added bonus in a cover of “Big Loader” by English sludge icon, Iron Monkey.
LORD OF THE DEEP is best described as a musical landslide, a thick tumultuous mass of earth steadily descending over the listener and engulfing them in a rocky sea of huge guitars, thundering drums and a truly monstrous voice. This is Australian Doom Metal at its finest.
