Slomatics Vinyl, CD & tapes by Slomatics at Norman Records

Show page list »


Slomatics are a heavy bunch from Northern Ireland who are all about crushing, riff-driven psychedelic stoner rock. It’s a classic formula of course, but Slomatics have had thirteen years to hone their take on it to a blunt, hammer-like point. Their 2014 record Estron is now getting a re-press on strictly limited edition white vinyl, thanks to Burning World.

A Hocht

Reissue of the third album from the justly acclaimed Belfast sludge/doom band, originally released in 2012. It boasts a mighty kraken on the cover and eight tracks (as the title suggests, if you know your Gaeilge). Slomatics are eyebrow-raisingly heavy despite eschewing a bassist, and display more idiosyncracy and character than most downtuners. If you’re into Melvins, High On Fire, Sleep, Conan, Yob and similar, and have missed this, rectify that sorry situation!

Futurians Live At Roadburn

Roadburn festival in Tilburg, Holland, really is a crucial place for the gnarlier end of heavy music, and it has been good to see documentation released recently of various bands giving their best to the Roadburn audiences. Here we have Slomatics doing their dense sludgy thing Live At Roadburn 2017, sounding as great as they ever have.

Conan / Slomatics
Conan vs Slomatics

Molasses thick doom metal on this split LP from Conan and Slomatics. Competing for who can play the loudest and largest riff the slowest, everyone’s a winner. Your appreciation of the cover, depicting a battle-hardened warrior riding a giant snail over a scarred dual-moon landscape, is probably a good indication of whether you will like the record or not. It’s great.
