All Wretch and No Vomit 9. Xtal 06 10. Clear Light O. .Spawned from the remnants of British heavy rockers TAINT comes HARK. Throughout HARK’s debut album Crystalline, angular riffing, pummelling rhythms, and dually melodic and unrelentingly ferocious vocals courtesy of former TAINT frontman (and acclaimed graphic artist) Jimbob Isaac lead to galloping passages that show the maturity of a band far more honed than their age belies.

Sludge metal has always been predominantly about bludgeoning riffs pummeling the listener into submission. The most successful acts in this sphere, though, are capable of fusing the relentless heaviness with different styles of music to suit their cause.
Hark have quite a lot of things going for them before yoou even have your first listen: vocalist/guitarist Jimbob Isaac fronted the celebrated stoner/sludge band Taint for over 16 years, Kurt Ballou of Converge mixed and mastered this album, and Hark are a sludge band on Seasons Of Mist, a label primarily known for black metal and death metal bands. All of this would be meaningless though if Crystalline didn’t absolutely rock, but rest assured that it isn’t just a good album, it’s a great album.
This album has an average beat per minute of 125 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 84/172 BPM). See its BPM profile at the bottom of the page. Tracklist Crystalline.
