Seum (bass only Sludge from Montreal): debut album "Winterized" out on June 11th
SEUM is a Montreal Sludge band formed by 3 European French Doom veterans expats formerly in Lord Humungus (Gaspard – vocals), Mlah! (Piotr – bass), and Uluun (Fred – drums).
SEUM means Venom in Arabic and is French slang for disappointment and frustration.The band is only using drums, vocals and bass, no guitars.
After a first EP, Summer of Seum released in 2020, a surprising Prince cover and a filthy handmade split 7" with our Parisian brothers Fatima, we are back with our first full length album, Winterized to be released on June 11th on Bandcamp and physically.
Named after a chemical process used in the cannabis industry, the album is a step forward in musical aggression and sound production.Locked-down during the long Canadian winter, we used this time as an opportunity to refine our music to its purest essence: heavy bass, groove and dirt.
Winterized includes 5 brand new tracks and a very own interpretation of the Ramones hit single "Pet Sematary"
(renamed "Red Sematary" in reference to the Red special measures zone in which Montreal has been stuck for the last 6 months): we hope you will like the album as much as we do!
