Florida sludge metal crew Yashira dropped their debut LP Shrine in April, but that hasn’t stopped the band from pushing straight ahead. They’ll be releasing a split 7-inch with metalcore legends Zao, and Decibel has a stream of that song, “Led to Ache.” Yashira’s thick sludge metal is infused with quite a bit of dissonance, with hints of grind, hardcore and even post-metal in the mix. The Florida quartet change styles on a dime, reeling the noisy chaos into pit-inducing fight riffs and jumping from grooves to blast beats without interrupting the song’s flow.
Three years into their career, “Led to Ache” is proof that Yashira can run with the big dogs and come out on top. Hear it for yourself, and snag a copy of the record here.
