Society's Burden - _Ten Tales From Hell's Trailer Park_
(Independent, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (5 out of 10)
Once you get past the rather downscaled production of the new offering from Society's Burden, you can sort of get into the doom/sludge/stoner state of things. Sludgy guitars, gritty vocals and a real downright dirty ambience spurts out from the material of Society's Burden as they play along, rarely breaking free from the hypnotic drive of the heavy music (check out "Betta Run" and "Cast Out"). The production is just plain lousy, but that is kind of the beauty of it all. The production just attaches itself to the already loosely played numbers, at times morphing them into a crushing metallic gravy train of emotions. I can get down to this, but not on a regular basis. I guess it is also the awful production that kind of turns it off from listen to listen. Take caution if you're going to scope this CD out.
