Sardonis

Cosmic Hearse reader and super bro, Dirk Noben, saw a band in Belgium that so impressed him, he bought two copies of their crushing EP and promptly mailed one to me. Doing shit like that is why Dirk is a heroic and noble gentleman, and precisely why when he dies he will go to Heaven and meet Jesus, and you will not. The band that inspired such magnanimous altruism from Mr. Noben was none other than the Belgian two piece instrumental sludge/doom band Sardonis. Upon it's timley arrival at my door, I placed this on the turntable, and too was stricken with a sudden feeling of generosity, I withdrew all my money from my savings account and gave it to my weed dealer. Thanks, Dirk.

Perhaps when Agalloch gets back to Belgium, Sardonis can open the show...

From time to time Mediafire goes down. It's always a good idea to try again. I just did and the link is fine.

You're welcome bro, and welcome to the Brotherhood of Sardonis. ;)

I just saw them live about two weeks ago (along with Pagan Altar), suprised to see them turn up here. Definatly good stuff, super-minimal, just a drum and a guitar with no vocals, but pretty punishing nonetheless.

thank you for your continuous generosity of sharing your music collection. So much stuff I would never have heard otherwise!

Just discovered this the other day and must say it's most righteous and awesome!
They now have a full-length,self-titled album out which is just as killer.
Thanks Aesop!
