When All Out Ward suggested posting some Tafkata, I was a little hesitant; it seems like I just got my copy. After a bit of snooping, I'm a little less leery. The band's website and myspace page betray a bit of neglect, and the labels involved in releasing the "Worker & Parasite" LP reveal an equally veiled approach at musical proliferation. If any of the above entities have a problem with me posting these rips, just send the word. Meanwhile, Tafkata have been annihilating the rotation here at FE HQs with their thick and gutsy sludge-metal-hardcore. The label bills them as a union of Rorschach and Sabbath, and I think that's pretty fair. Some of the more bouncy tempos allude to a newer sludge master, Brainoil, and in a vague way, the drawn out vocals evoke a bit of Dystopia. Whatever the comparisons you choose, the above cast and the fact that Tafkata has former Enewetak folks in its line-up should help you decide if they might interest you. The bottom line is, if you like your metal fried Southern style and infused with a fair amount of hardcore grit, this album is calling your name.
"Worker & Parasite"
If you live in the UK, some distros might have this piece in stock.
