These guys were formerly known as Locust Swarm and started playing as Seahag in 2004. They play out of Little Rock, Arkansas as a 5-piece and feature Deadbird's vocalist as well as 2 other members involved with Circle of the Black Thorn.
This is some pretty dark and melodic sludge with doomy vocals that alternate from guttural low-pitched screams on up to the high-pitched sludge variety. This is unlike anything I've heard in a while on grounds of their melodic nature, but it is refreshing to hear their take on the usual dime-a-dozen sludge style, and the feel you get from it is definitely despair and hopelessness.
I guess you get elements of Rwake, considering the melodic riffs, but this is in no way psychedelic; it most resembles vocals and melodies. Their demo as Locust Swarm remains incomplete and, unfortunately, never saw a release. However, the demo released under their Seahag moniker is killer along with their full-length, so go ahead and check those two out in their entirety. Most songs won't go past the 6-8 minute mark for those of you on the inpatient side.
I originally started this blog with the intent to create an archive of New Orleans/Louisiana based bands demo's, EP's, full lengths and live recordings. My primary focus was to feature a little bit of everything going on in this great city. There are many bands past and present that have never gotten the recognition that they (in my opinion) truly deserved.
So I figured why not start converting all these demo tapes and etc. and share them with the world? But as I kicked the idea around on a few message boards and with friends, I decided to not just limit the page to Louisiana.
So here you will find artists from all across the globe, some may be well known, others may not. Here at Nola 504 and More, the Krewe and myself all have very unique musical tastes, which I think helps our page really stand out.
Yes, we may feature a lot of metal, but we also have punk, country, jazz, rockabilly, etc. Musical "gumbo" so to speak; meaning a little bit of everything. So, if you are/were in a band from Louisiana, or anywhere else in the world, and care to share it with the rest of the world, drop one of us an email. We'd love to check it out!
