A lo-fi collage of 4-track recordings, What a Drag serves as a dumping-ground for unused ideas, archived bedroom demos and rehearsals that never quite made it past the "listenable" stage. Making use of recordings from 2005-2012, this grave robbing has harvested all the necessary ingredients for such a half-baked and blundering golem: growling synth and oppressive drum machines, black metal riffs, multiple tape-manipulated layers of captured audio and 1/2 speed 808 sludge rock.
