PAR9NOID | UNDΞRGRØUND MΞTΛL SHØW "Bluesy" Stoner Doom? WTF, right? F'n RIGHT!! TURN THIS UP!!! Homerun to say the least what an amazing sound and mixed with the vocal style there's not one thing I can think of about this entire album that's bad, except it ends, of course! Masterfully composed and performed by the end you'll be singing along and playing deep heavy fuzzy riffs on your air guitar too! EPIC stuff!!! Favorite track: Green Swamp.

REVIEWS:
- Doom Charts March 2020: "You didn’t expect such a variety on a debut album. The Italians bring all the best from different periods from 70’s doom to modern stoner. Be prepared to get excited, be sure to be fascinated. Psychedelic acidity and electrified melancholy blues will pierce your soul. And the singer is the perfect match between Jim Morrison and Glen Danzig."

- Desert Psychlist: "This is the sound of a band who found their mojo then tried to smoke it, a band who met the devil at the infamous "crossroads" and sold him a bag of exotic herbs. What, however, sets Lunar Swamp apart, from bands travelling along similar blues flecked highways, is that despite all their fuzz and distortion, and that they underpin all their songs with a strong doomic undercurrent, is the fact that these guys have a true understanding and affinity with the music they choose to play."

- Fuzzy Cracklins: "Lunar Swamp has dropped half an hour of fuzzy riffage with vocals that could only come from the darkest, dankest depths of The Swamp. These five songs will leave your ears dripping with swamp moss and reaching for your jug of Bayou rum, and paddling your boat across the fetid waters to your next crawdad boil."

- Stoner Hive: ""UnderMudBlues" is a powerful debut and a lesson in atmosphere and style, melding Sabbathian riffs with a southern blues flair in total commitment to Lunar Swamp's unique and vivid vision of doom."

- DenpaFuzz: "En una dualidad en la que el blues del delta es protagonista, los italianos LUNAR SWAMP conjugan todo el sentimiento con riffs arenosos más propios del desert-rock en EP debut “UNDERMUDBLUES”. Una conjunción en la que el fuzz nos intoxica mientras los efluvios de los pantanos narcotizan unos temas que huelen a humo cannabico y bourbon de garito de mala muerte. Si a ello unimos un atractivo toque doom, el cóctel está servido. Distorsiones, y ecos de los humerales sureños conviven en una armonía en la que los sonidos primitivos toman una nueva dimensión. Arcaicos si, pero lo suficientemente chamánicos como que las hierbas psicotrópicas y los hongos alucinógenos habiten en cada uno de los temas."

- The Sleeping Shaman: "Italian trio Lunar Swamp kicks off UnderMudBlues: crushing fuzz played at a stately, doomy pace, with drums understated and nearly subliminal. The bellowing baritone vocals are those of a high priest who’s just summoned a mad horde of elemental spirits, whipping them into a frenzy to do his bidding. It’s blues, but where Robert Johnson lamented the hellhound on his trail, Lunar Swamp are holding the leash."

- Outlaws of the Sun: "UnderMudBlues is a superbly produced release that should allow the band to make a name for themselves within the Doom/Sludge/Stoner Metal community."

- La Habitación 235: "En un ámbito más propios a los profundos pantanos del Amazonas, la siempre hospitalidad sureña de Carolina del Norte, el blues de la vieja escuela y las densidades más propias de los primeros redondos de Wo Fat, os presentamos un prometedor arranque como es el de los italianos Lunar Swamp. Como consecución al sencillo que precisamente abre este notable debut lanzado el pasado mes de Febrero, el power trío de Catanzaro se bautiza en nombre del mejor de los riffs con este “UnderMudBlues”."

- Earthquaker Mexico: "Tras la escucha detenida UnderMudBlues del tenemos los elementos suficientes para escribir que Lunar Swamp puede convertirse en un nuevo referente del doom lisérgico gracias a su acercamiento a las raíces sonoras que le dieron origen. Sin lugar a dudas en el material hay fuerza y riffs malignos, pero el trío italiano sabe imprimir en esta primera entrega la esencia melódica del viejo blues sin que se pierda el sello inconfundible del doom, logrando con esta fórmula un sonido propio que casi nadie ha logrado más allá de emplear el mismo método de trabajo acústico. Sus casi treinta minutos de duración fluyen a gran velocidad en forma contradictoria a las aguas estancadas que le dotan de inspiración, por lo que sin duda está en esta capacidad el ingrediente que lo hace indispensable dentro de nuestra colección sonora..."

- Roadie Metal: "O Black Sabbath fez bem em manter os traços de Blues em meio ao seu Rock pesado que depois se tornou conhecido como Heavy Metal. Assim, o leque de possibilidades para se criar arranjos, harmonias e composições permaneceu bastante amplo. O Lunar Swamp aprendeu bem direitinho e agora são eles quem ensinam como fazer um Doom Metal sujo e pesado, mas ao mesmo tempo elegante e refinado. Tal qual um casebre aconchegante e farto dentro de uma floresta cortada por um rio lamacento. Nesta lama sim, vale a pena pular e se sujar todo!"
