((Big Business)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

L.A.'s Big Business are a brutal and hard-hitting duo that features Coady Willis of Murder City Devils/Dead Low Tide fame on drums and screams, and Jared Warren of Karp on bass. Both Willis and Warren have also been recent additions to the legendary Melvins band.

Their extremely heavy sound represents stellar sludge-metal in all of its muddled glory. They're sludgy because of that gritty and guttural bass distortion they live and die by, and they're metal because, well, those bottomless bass riffs just straight-up rock. There are no guitars in this band, as they don't need them to sound extremely loud.

Big Business are signed on to Hydrahead records (one of my favorites), home to the similarly sludgy Jesu and the more metal Pelican. Yowza.
