Metal Injection

Ironically, Chat Pile saves some of its more straightforward sludge metal riffs for the last and longest track on God's Country.

New Noise

As a decent standard of living begins to feel more like a luxury, and with no foreseeable hope in sight, the sound of God’s Country offers a reflection full of frustration and despair.

It’s too personably grounded and idiosyncratically voiced to be mistaken for anyone else’s recycled diatribe; it punches up tenaciously every step of the way; it’s ready for the end of days, and it hates itself for this with a vengeance.
Beats Per Minute
Chat Pile are essentially a bunch of metal-loving righteous Loraxes who have come to tell us where we are going wrong while regaling us with the darkest stories from the underbelly of society. Best pay attention, then, folks. An instant classic.
Terrifying and thrilling in equal measure, the debut album from the Oklahoma City sludge-metal band is a vivid rendering of the towering piles of poison littering America’s psychic landscape.
Busch’s voice is wearier here than anywhere else on the record, settling into the cadences of an experimental murder ballad, threatening death upon someone with wealth—unaware of the ruination they caused for the narrator.

This album is about catharsis, yes, giving voice to the pain and anger of some people’s experience in a conflicted country. But mostly, it seems, it’s an attempt to open people’s eyes, to the darker realities just underneath our noses.

This album probably fucks your wife and your mother.


Damn bitch you live like this???

The listener can feel the rage of the singer. Naalbom's style is hardcore punk with sludge metal abilities and elements of joy devijan i.e. post punk. It is not easy to get into this album, even the name of the album is not sensitive God's Country is the name of the album. Cover reminds me of Pink Floyd's Animals.
