Hives In Decline


'Hives In Decline' the colossal debut album from Salt Lake City's THE DITCH AND THE DELTA. A lurching mammoth riff monster trio, hammering their doom chords with a DC driven rhythm and an angular noise-rock intensity. A rare jewel of an album. Lazy reference points to get you started / RIYL - Kylesa, Fugazi, High On Fire, Don Caballero, Red Fang, early Mastodon... The Ditch and the Delta formed out of three friends of nearly 15 years. While Elliot Secrist (guitar/vocals), and Charles Bogus (Drums), have played in bands off an on over that span of time, it was the addition of Kory Quist (Bass/vocals) that solidified the band and their sound. The band is often lumped in the doom category but their sound is most often described as sludgy math rock, Neurosis as a stripped down, noise rock outfit ( The sound is huge an oppressively heavy. According to the sound is an amalgam of Doom, noise, and progressive metal; comparing the band to The Melvins, Eyehategod, Intronaut, Fugazi and Godflesh in the same review.
