"The Sludgelord: Clover - "Exile" (Album Review)"

'Exile' from New York's hardcore/sludge/post metal trio Clover is a bit of an interesting find. All 3 elements mentioned above are blended so well that neither takes centre stage.

Imagine if you will a heavier, growlier Kowloon Walled City or maybe Black Shape of Nexus with far fewer fuzz pedals and you'd be almost there! All 8 tracks offer a distinctive punch, weight and flow that blurs genre lines. Vocalist/bassist Andrew Guthaus' half scream, half growl is distinctive enough to permeate the no frills production. There are plenty of enjoyable moments on offer here, such as the chugging, His Hero Is Gone esque riff of 'Monolith' that bleeds back into the opening riff and the very KWC sounding 'Into Exile' as well as the biting aggression of 'Scorn'.

It's a good effort from this Kingston New York trio, unlikely to be at the top of anyone's "End of Year" list but a very solid effort. - The Sludgelord

"Dead Air At The Pulpit: (U.S.) Clover - Exile LP Review"

Holy shit. This totally rips. I totally had to give this album a review after getting a request to give this album a review back in February. I'm totally kicking myself for not giving this album a listen sooner. Clover is a three piece band from Kingston, NY who formed in late 2010. Clover play a brutal, dark, and menacing style of music that incorporates elements of hardcore, punk, metal, and sludge within their sound. Musically, Clover can be said to be influenced by bands such as Achilles, Botch, Coalesce, Engineer, as well as newer bands such as Divider and Heiress. Since their inception in 2010, Clover have released a four song EP titled Sea Of Red in April of 2011, a split LP with Stairwell Sea titled Between Dogs And Wolves in February of 2012, a split LP with Afterhours in October of 2012, and a ten song LP titled Vultures in January of 2014. Exile is the band's latest full-length LP, which is slated for release via Manic Progression records on April 5th, 2016. On Exile, Clover offer up eight tracks of metallic mid-tempo hardcore, punk, metal, and sludge. Overall, Exile is a killer LP and should not be missed and Clover is an absolute must list for fans of Hanging Like A Hex records style bands. Highly recommended! Enjoy! - Dead Air At The Pulpit

"SVBTERRANEAN | Clover - Monolith | Exclusive Song Stream"

Kingston, NY’s resident powerhouse sludge trio Clover will be issuing a follow up to their excellent 2014 debut Vultures on April 5th, in the form of Exile which will be released via Manic Progression Records.

The forthcoming full length is 8 songs of gritty, sludgy metal infused with a solid dose of AmRep style noise rock influence. Svbterranean is proud to premiere the first track from Exile, entitled Monolith. The song showcases all of the elements that make Clover such a unique band – their angular, off kilter guitar riffs and raw vocals that recall bands like Coalesce and Converge, and a rhythm section that mines the same vein of asphalt-laden, visceral pummel that Unsane and Helmet have been refining for the last couple decades. In short, Monolith is a beast that growls in your face and then devours you. Listen to it now:

Be on the lookout for Clover as they hit the road in the next few months to bring Exile to audiences new and old. The release show for the record will take place on 4/8/16 at The Anchor in Kingston, NY alongside MPR labelmates Dead Channels and Hellkeeper, with an assist from CT heavy rockers VRSA. - SVBTERRANEAN


Still working on that hot first release.



Loud, fast and raw. These are the three words that best describe three-piece NY metal outfit, Clover. Formed in late 2010, the band was brought together by three individuals with one goal in mind: to bring forth an intense and overall abrasive sound to both a live setting, as well as during recording. With one EP and 2 split albums under their belts, Clover is ready to release their debut full length album, VULTURES, which will be available on CD and digital download January 28, 2014. The album is self produced and was mixed and mastered by critically acclaimed music producer D. James Goodwin (Norah Jones, Devo) at The IsOkOn. Look for the band in 2014 as they plan on hitting the road, playing shows all along the eastern seaboard as well as embarking on their first nationwide tour.
