LEFT TO STARVE
Founded in 2013 in the city of Karlovac, Left to Starve embraced the ethos of the DIY punk community while blending aggression of dark hardcore and heaviness of sludge metal resulting in a couple of releases. Throughout the years, the band toured extensively around Europe. With its accumulated knowledge and experience, Left to Starve started experimenting with its sound and decided on a paradigm shift in the band’s approach to sound and composition.
The band accepted contemporary sludge and doom conventions, preserving the punk ethos which got them to play extreme music in the first place. A new direction the band took on their latest record ‘Nikada se nisam bojao zmija‘, released by Dutch Rope or Guillotine records, is best described by Sean Reveron of the CVLT Nation, who describes it as a “hellish ride into a cave of darkness where the feedback is the only light that shines”. Reveron also listed the record in the CVLT Nation’s top sludge records of the 2019.
