Brits have been responsible for some of the world's favorite 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 categorize their heavy sound as "rural misery" and "power drunk."

Meadows' latest sludge track is aptly titled "Gobshite," a title which conjures up an image of an old man spitting his teeth into a bucket. It's a blend of stoner doom riffs punctuated by bursts of crusty hardcore. "Gobshite" appears on an upcoming compilation from the Portland-based label Eolian Empire that is called (We've Got) Fiends in Low Places: Heavy Vibes Internationale. The compilation includes 15 noisy aggressive bands from around the world.
