Lungville is a nasty, mean sounding album. Name dropping other artists is the reviewer's crutch, and while throwing out groups like Melvins, Sunn0))), Toner Low, and Graves at Sea offers a general idea as to what this Belgian four-piece sounds like, it's sort of like saying Massachusetts is a lot like South Dakota because they're both in the United States. Suffice it to say, Ultraphallus plays slow and heavy, accenting the all-encompassing riffs with deceptive lulls and piercing screams. They approach drone terrority, yet remain fiesty enough to keep their dirges on the angrier side of aggressive.

Unlike the Scarificator or the art of Trepanation, Ultraphallus' Lungville is a good kind of hurt. Call it ambient doom, psychedelic drone, or psych-ward sludge – my advice is to sit back, relax, and enjoy what they inflict upon you.
