METH DRINKER – “Oil” + Discography VINYL LP + 2xCD OUT AND SHIPPING

The LPs arrived and were shipped back in January. While the 2xCD suffered from some delay at the pressing plant due to issues with the video tracks featured. Eventually arrived this week, and looks amazing. Worth the wait.


If there has to be just one band in the new millenium which could compare to the 90’s forefathers and creators of misanthropic Sludge (GRIEF, DYSTOPIA, NOOTHGRUSH, CORRUPTED…) it has undoubtely to be New Zealand’s METH DRINKER. The level of NOISE and HATE created by these three sociopaths remains unmatched.

Throne Records proudly announces two releases which have taken almost two years of work and dedication:
TR88 – METH DRINKER – Oil + Discography 2xCD
TR89 – METH DRINKER – Oil LP reissue

These contain unmissable recordings which keep hundreds of people worldwide hunting for them even a few years after the band ceased to exist.

These three sonic sociopaths from New Zealand are the authors of some of the most hateful, evil and fucking malignant sludge ever to reach human ear.”
(Cvlt Nation)

Meth Drinker is so visceral it’s painful at points.
Be prepared, as the heavy atmosphere can become overbearing and downright oppressive, but isn’t that what we want from Meth Drinker, anyway?
(Sputnikmusic)

Have you ever put a record on and thought to yourself, “Since when did people inside insane asylums get to use instruments and why does it sound so fucking great?”.
