Dystopia / Suffering Luna - Split ep 1995

Dystopia were the kings of the depressive sludge crust genre and released some epic records whilst Suffering Luna are more on the fringes and offer a different take on the genre with haunting compositions that explode in to chaos. I do prefer their split LP with Gasp to this track but it's still a winner.

Dystopia - Diary Of A Battered Child
Suffering Luna - La Reina Del Rosario

SxLx used to be called Christfall (same style essentially...Christfall was a bit more "hXc"). Cole from FYP/Toys That Kill designed their side of their cover. I still think it's his face actually, though he denied it.

But yeah, SxLx were an amazing band...there's material out there they never released either as SxLx or Christfall...I'd love to hear it.

Great blog here! SxL were from South Gate, California and played one of their first shows with Mindrot (that's why they got asked to do this split). Yeah, ChristFall was their first name and these dudes WORSHIPPED Godflesh. Didn't the guy from FYP drum for them awhile?
