Wardehns, a three-piece crust/sludge band from small-town Wisconsin, is coming out swinging with their new full-length “Now Cometh The Foul.” Comprised of vocalist and guitarist Adam Geurink, bassist Brad Beilke, and drummer Thomas Sorbet, the trio delivers eight grimy, brick-wall tracks in this follow-up to their 2017 self-titled EP. As Blessed Altar Zine puts it, this is “brutal, sludge-laden riffage that has a somewhat melodic drive about it, yet can’t help but rip your head off.” Channeling the likes of High on Fire, 3 Inches of Blood, Converge, and many more divergent influences, Wardehns pummels listeners with just the right mix of groove and force.
“Now Cometh The Foul” was recorded by Adam Tucker at Signaturetone Recording in Minneapolis and features cover art by David Paul Seymour. The album will be released on March 15th 2019 on CD with a vinyl release to follow. Digital version is already out via Bandcamp.
