The Metal Sludge “Hey, That’s What I Call Sludge! Vol. I” CD!


That’s right, it’s time for our first fucking CD!

Since October of last year, we’ve been working on putting together the first Metal Sludge CD! This idea has been around for a while and it’s something we always wanted to do. A few years back, Capitol Records came to us and wanted to do a Metal Sludge Compilation, but it would have only been with Capitol/EMI bands, and being the control freaks we are, we wanted to do things our way, so we passed on that and other offers until we could do things our way, with 100% control.

Well now the planets have aligned and the time is right!

Metal Sludge Records is proud to announce "Hey, That’s What I Call Sludge" Volume 1!

We wanted to bring together new school bands and old school bands and create a CD we could be proud of. We have compiled 20 bands and over 74 minutes of music on one CD, to give you the most rock for your buck. Well, $13 bucks to be exact. The music on "Hey, This Is What I Call Sludge!" is so devastating that you’ll hit ‘repeat’ on your CD player and just listen to this CD over and over again. Eventually you’ll lose your job as well as your friends because you won’t leave your house. You’ll just be chilling in your room listening to this CD like a retard, but don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Here is the track by track breakdown of each song on the CD, as well as ordering information down below. All these bands deserve Super Balls Awards for having the balls to have a song on our very first CD! Give them your love and go see them if they hit your town.

Now onto our CD, or if you just want to skip all this and order it right away, then Click Here to order it today!

1. Metal Skool "Rainbows & Witches" (skit)

Metal Skool kicks off our CD with an intro that puts every other CD intro in the history of music to shame. This legendary track now becomes the measuring stick which all other CD intros will be judged!

2. Pain For Pleasure "Reign In Pain"

Sum 41’s alter egos Pain For Pleasure bless our CD with their presence by delivering the first song, "Reign In Pain!" Their metal never rusts and sets the tone for the rest of the CD!

Quiet Riot singer Kevin DuBrow dug through is archives for this track. This is a demo from Kevin’s band "Little Women" that he was in back in the last 80s/early 90s. This is a never before heard…well, it’s been heard before. Obviously it was recorded so somebody at one time or another heard it, and of course Kevin has heard it before since he sang on it, and the musicians who played on it heard it, but none of you have really heard it and that’s what matters.
