Wardehns, a three-piece heavy metal/sludge crust band from small-town Wisconsin, is coming out swinging with their new full-length Now Cometh The Foul. Comprised of vocalist and guitarist Adam Geurink, bassist Brad Beilke, and drummer Thomas Sorbet, the trio delivers eight grimy, brick-wall tracks in this follow-up to their 2017 self-titled EP.
As Blessed Altar Zine puts it, this is “brutal, sludge-laden riffage that has a somewhat melodic drive about it, yet can’t help but rip your head off.” Channeling the likes of Inepsy, High on Fire, 3 Inches of Blood, Converge, and many more divergent influences, Wardehns pummels listeners with just the right mix of groove and force.
The outstanding punk encrusted intensity of ‘Denim Dogs’ makes it clear WARDEHNS are not messing around! Sound wise, Sludge may be the template but speed wise WARDEHNS are all about an emphasis on a dirty punkish crust style cadence with a take no prisoners attitude.. This rips!
