The UK has been responsible for some of the world's favourite downer tunes. Suffolk-based sludge band Meadows is a perfect example: they make music for the EYEHATEGOD fan who prefers scotch over bourbon, and they categorise their heavy sound as "rural misery" and "power drunk".

Meadows' latest sludge track is aptly titled "Gobshite". It's a blend of stoner doom riffs punctuated by bursts of crusty hardcore. "Gobshiteappears on an upcoming compilation from the Portland-based label Eolian Empire called (We've Got) Fiends in Low Places: Heavy Vibes Internationale. The compilation includes 15 noisy aggressive bands from around the world.
