Cadaver in Drag

Raw Child (Animal Disguise)

Cadaver in Drag sludge metal Sir Lord Baltimore

Chop up the best parts of '70s sludge-rockers Sir Lord Baltimore, mix in some echo-laden psychedelia, and stretch it all out with the punching screams of late-era Black Flag, and you get something that sounds a lot like Kentucky's Cadaver in Drag. Raw Child plays out like a noisy heavy-metal opera, with the 19-minute opener, "Walking Through the Gates of Hell," serving as a distortion-soaked manifesto. Meanwhile, "Fuck This Place" sounds even angrier than its title implies.
