Valve - Apnee

Continuing to bring the sludge, Valve has a little more of a blackened edge.  Honestly though, it feels more like a half-speed Converge.  In my mind, this is a good thing.  They share a similar vocal style as well as noisy, yet insanely catchy riffs that mix punk, progressive, alternative, and post-metal.  At around 35 minutes, the album sticks around just long enough to make an impression and leave you ready for another spin.  Even the one lengthy (13 minute) track maintains interest throughout with hook after hook of sludgy goodness.  It's only 3 Euro on BANDCAMP.
