Life, Liberty, And The Pursuit Of Heaviness

One of my favorite albums over the last decade was Abominable Iron Sloth's self-titled masterpiece. 21 minutes of complex time signatures, screaming vocals and comic-book geek goodness. I saw Justin and Andre play as the 'Sloth last year at a tiny sushi bar in Richmond, VA. Even as a two-piece playing for twenty minutes they destroyed more than most bands can in an hour. The fans have been waiting for Abominable Iron Sloth II for almost 5 years and on 4/20/10 it will finally be a reality. Can't wait. But in the meantime, there was a point in 2007 where band member issues had poor Justin change the name (back?) to Indomitable Iron Sloth. I guess those troubles have dissipated since the band is back to its other name but during that time they previewed a demo version of "A Nation Of Ignorants" on their myspace page for the upcoming album (then-titled Americana). Even recorded through a cassette deck it sounds huge.... enjoy.
