Naga – Inanimate 

The boys really turn up the black for release number three in tracks 1, 2 & 5 anyway. “Hyele” is a poisonous stabbing of blackened doom with crippling bass (& the first Naga track I heard). “TMWRRI” is a cover of “The Money Will Roll Right In” by Fang – I’ve not heard the original, just the Mudhoney cover) I  thought “weird title but that riff sounds familiar”. Best release yet.

Naga – Hēn

First full length, also includes “The Path” from the EP – not sure if it’s a rerecording or the same version but it still rules. Naga are still sludging it up but the bass is more prominent on this one, lovely meaty distorted tone. There are fewer stoner riffs but more psychedelic elements (psychedelements). Getting better and better!

Naga – Naga

Debut EP from Italian sludgelords, first track “The Path” has a stoner swagger and a creepy slow solo that sounds like it was played by the grim reaper, floating in space. Lots of pounding riff repetition, but they throw in nice unusual turnarounds especially in the 2nd track. I heard about these guys via http://www.nocleansinging.com and they have a new album out on Friday…
