Since the release of their first full-length album, “The Fallen Sun”, SLUDGEHAMMER from Toronto, Canada have been riding a wave of great reviews for the record as well as their live show.
Originally formed in 2013 by Jeff Wilson (guitar) and Fernando Villalobos (drums), SLUDGEHAMMER’s initial lineup came together with the addition of Daniel Ayers (vocals/bass) and Christopher Szarota (vocals). By the end of the year, they released a demo which gained considerable ground. 2014’s EP “Organ Harvester” introduced Dan Ayers as a co-vocalist, creating a unique sound that molded Sludgehammer into the heavy and groovy band it is today.
In 2016, the LP “The Fallen Sun” was released; fast and chunky it was well received by fans and the media. Unfortunately, after the release of that album, the band parted ways with Szarota and Josh Stephney was brought on board to complete the album cycle.
With the lineup finalized, SLUDGEHAMMER hit the road and laid waste to every stage they set foot on, showing their fans that they were now stronger than ever. After a few successful tours in support of “The Fallen Sun”, it was time to start writing the next record which will be the first to feature Stephney on vocals. SLUDGEHAMMER are preparing to show their maturity by unleashing a second monstrous album “Antechamber” in 2019.
