Sludgy riffs, Allman-esque slide solos and whisky-drenched-yet-soaring female vocals - this is Aboleth!

Aboleth was founded in 2016 by Collyn McCoy (Trash Titan, The Ultra Electric Mega Galactic) and 21-year-old whisky-throated belter Brigitte Roka. Roka propels the group with her Joplin-esque grit and soaring highs, while McCoy lays the sludgy foundation care of his baguitar -- a bass/guitar hybrid that offers the lows of the former and the highs of the latter. Together the two meld stoner-doom with primal blues and desert rock to form what they have dubbed "dirt metal".

'Benthos', their full-length debut album, expands on the themes explored on their 2016 debut cassette - murder, revenge, lust, devil worship, and the benefits of a plant-based diet - while pushing their sound deeper into the proto-blues swamp.
