Ex-North Carolinians who brought to the West Coast their brand of southern fried dirt metal, a raw, sludgy canker sore of sound in the diseased vein of Eyehategod and Soilent Green. Nothing Positive Only Negative is the band's first major label release - ugly riffage that really got me hooked on the sludge genre. Big highlight of the album is the epic "Rough Sleep," the piss-in-your-face anthem for every sour relationship you've ever had. Unfortunately, NPON was also the band's last slab of sound, they broke up in 2009.
