今天我們正式發行日本Sludge Metal超級名盤GREENMACHiNE – D.A.M.N. CD版！
Please welcome Greenmachine from Japan.
Their debut album “D.A.M.N.” was released around 24 years ago by local TASTE Recs. [T/CD-1] in 1996.
One year later it was released by US cult label Man’s Ruin [MR103CD], the cover artwork designed by the vastly talented graphic artist Frank Kozik of still shocking and disturbing nowadays.
In 2003 Japan’s DIWPHALANX [PX-103] added “+1” to the title and released the beast, which is really hard to find at the moment.
In 2020 Robustfellow invited on board two finest labels: Riff Merchant and Long Legs Long Arms.
Damn, together we’ll be able to cover the globe with analogue sludgecore tunes.
The marvelous album is going to be released first time on vinyl ever.
Bad Moon Rising [TW] volunteered to Robust Relics Series with CD version
– Artwork by Iaroslav Grob [Robust Artist]

• “D.A.M.N. is a hardcore crusty assault to the senses, and it’s been described as a “timeless masterpiece far ahead of its time.” There’s absolutely NO way you’ll ever regret adding it to your collection. “
– Metal Injection
• “Greenmachine’s sludge was extra-vicious and extra-biting at a time when no one had any idea what to do with that kind of band. Their style was ahead of its time then and has lost none of its impact now.”
– The Obelisk
• Hear what real sludge sounds like.
