EP Review: A Horse Called War – Good For Glue (And Nothing Else) (APF Records)

UK sludge titans A Horse Called War will release Good For Glue (And Nothing Else) on 22nd November 2019 via APF Records. This highly anticipated EP contains their first new music since 2007’s critically acclaimed Stumble At Every Hurdle, and is their first release since the quartet’s reformation in 2015.

The masters of UK sludge are back with a five-track EP that serves a golden reminder of the quartet’s power. Compelling, fascinating and unbelievably heavy music beginning with the wild and feral Dog is Dead. The pace and tempo shown here is eye-watering stuff but it’s when it drops and the head-banging groove shows up that things truly explode.

Outstanding stuff, the filth sticks to the soul as Old One Eye bursts like a pus-filled sore. A shocking level of intensive pain, it is worth every sharp jab of suffering as the groove wraps around.

Pardon the Pun is more of the same but in a much shorter package, no complaints here though as it’s hardcore levels of disgust. The desperation in every note and word that comes out of A Horse Called War is something else.

Alongside Don Fyre, another torrent of abuse from A Horse Called War and Woodpusher, the equivalent of crawling on your belly through muck and shit, these first three tracks are egregiously intense.
