Mastodon, Baroness, Kylesa, and every other scummy punk-infused Southern metal band making waves of late owes a debt of gratitude to North Carolina's sludge forefathers Buzzov*en. Appropriate adjectives to describe the blunt force of the band's feedback-stained power chords and drugged-down lurch have been exhausted on the recent tide of unwashed beardos slinging guitars tuned to drop C, but it's crucial to remember that back in 1992 Buzzov*en was unlike anything else. They were violent, reckless, and absolutely terrifying. The band suffered from drug problems, lineup changes, and bad record deals, eventually leading to their breakup in '01. With recent compilations from underground mainstays Alternative Tentacles and Relapse, the band is back on the radar and ready to deliver a history lesson to the mangy hordes. BRIAN COOK
