yea but a couple good albums doesnt mean the genre is still alive to me. like i said there are still good prog rock albums coming out now, but most of the good ones just rip off the 70s. the rest is shit like karnivool. so yes like prog I can say that sludge is pretty much dead, but that doesnt mean there still arent a couple solid albums coming out.

you can find good albums coming out of every genre essentially. its like death metal is pretty dead too and has been for a while. there are still a couple new releases guys here dig but for the most part they just sound like odsm. besides ulcerate there hasnt been many death metal bands that really added something new to the genre while being awesome.

Digging: William Tyler - Impossible Truth

"firstly rwake and thou have even less sludge tendencies than any of the bands i listened to"

anything uffomammut has done.

so how would you define the bands you listed? do they have to basically mimic those old 70's bands to be considered prog?

It's the song that sounds like something you'd hear out of a band like Disturbed or Godsmack or some shit
