Sludge metal (sometimes referred to simply as "sludge") is a subgenre of heavy metal that melds elements of and ; sometimes southern rock. Sludge metal is typically harsh and abrasive; often featuring shouted or screamed vocals, heavily distorted down tuned instruments and sharply contrasting tempos. Sludge generally combines the slow tempos, heavy rhythms and dark, pessimistic atmosphere of doom metal with the aggression, shouted vocals and occasional fast tempos of hardcore punk.

    Southern Belgian occult quartet. Twisted atmospheres blended with forgotten tales of witchcraft rituals. Ignobilis Ritae : A call upon the women burnt on the pyre...a requiem for those who burn.

    Drone/doom/sludge/post-metalers Ohmu's full length debut, Let Nothing Grieve You Beyond Measure is here, after their praised demo, Ootheca. Painfully slow and drawn out, massive and ethereal, it moves between being blisteringly harsh and imposing, and mournfully soft and ambient. Recommended for fans of Earth, Khanate, Corrupted, Year of no Light, Godspeed You! Black Emperor

    To me Mastodon's first album Remission is absolutely sludge combined with progressive metal elements. Then the progressive metal influence definitely became more pronounced in their music on later albums. I guess I'm the opposite I have just always thought their sound/riffs were so sludgy. : )
