The Trail

Lute FP Supremely bouncy, groovy, heavy stoner sludge, with harsh vocals that neatly juxtapose the groove. Once you get it, it really works.

Reminds of one of my all-time fav thrashy metal albums that also happens to be contemporary- Sacred Monster’s ‘Worship The Weird’.

Groove-n-Shout, I’ll call it. Almost nobody pulls it off, but done properly it’s brilliant, as the English would say.

muschiosauro Crushing stoner-soaked sludge. Normally I'm not the biggest fan of harsh vocals, but here they fit like a glove over one massive sonic fist made of fat riffs, blazing guitar solos, psychedelic sorties, intelligent songwriting and a relentless, irresistible groove fueled by a stellar rhythm section. One of those records that urge to be listened to on repeat. Favorite track: Filthy as Charged.

about

"The Trail began as a mindset - a Nevada desert scenery turned into soaring melodies tasting like light beer, whiskey shots, and sand. The concept eventually developed into a story of a person stuck in a loop of self-destructive behaviour and finding deliverance through an unexpected spiritual journey.

The record was completely recorded and produced by the band, and the recording process was based on preforming as much live as possible. The result was then mixed by Andrew Schneider and mastered by Carl Saff who were 110% in tune with our ideas and production, which resulted in a killer sound.
The record forms its narrative through uncompromising groove and relentless, crushing riffs that DDJ is known for, however, introducing a wider array of psychedelic and atmospheric elements than before. The Trail is the
most whole record to come from DDJ, and by far the best.

Toni / Demonic Death Judge"
