Sounds For The Lost Generation

Tons stream the first single »Chronic Morning Obesity Part 1« taken from their split »Doom Sessions Vol. 4« with Bongzilla

Italian sludge/doom band Tons stream the first single »Chronic Morning Obesity Part 1« taken from their split »Doom Sessions Vol. 4« with Bongzilla, which is coming out on April 23rd, 2021 via Heavy Psych Sounds. »Chronic Morning Obesity« is Tons’ 20 minutes musical odyssey and here you have just the first part.

Says the band: “It is an honor to share a split album with what is for us one of the most representative bands of the genre. For the occasion we have written a long piece that is divided into three parts, which talks about munchies obesity. The song starts in full sludge style and then becomes a long psychedelic journey.”

From Heavy Psych Sounds:

Heavy Psych Sounds is really proud to announce a brand new series of split albums that will be called »Doom Sessions«.

We are going to release a bunch of compilations with doom bands from Heavy Psych Sounds roster featuring some of the heaviest bands of the world doom scene. Each volume will host two bands.

This record you are holding is Vol. 4 – a split album between the Wisconsin Cannabeasts doom-sludge legends Bongzilla and the Italian heavy sludge band Tons.

All the tracks are new and never released before. More then half an hour of stoned heavy doom and sludge riffs!!!

Awesome artwork by the mighty Branca Studio.

Tons formed in 2009 with members of hardcore bands from the Turin scene (The Redrum, Lama Tematica and NoInfo). Slow and heavy sounds take the place of the frenetic HC rhythms; the lyrics speak about weed in an ironic way, but also about a certain tendency to esotericism that characterizes the city of Turin. In 2010 they recorded a demo and in 2012 the first full-length »Musineè Doom Session«, recorded by Danilo “Dano” Battocchio, was released for the Turin-based Escape From Today and for the Roman Heavy Psych Sounds. In 2013 a split with Lento from Rome came out and Tons began to plow the European venues, opening the stage for bands like Bongzilla, Unsane, Church Of Misery, Napalm Death, Pentagram etc. In 2014 they were invited to play at the Duna Jam in Sardinia and at the Incubate Fest in Tillburg (NL). In 2015 the drummer Marco Dinocco left the band and was replaced by Andrea Peracchia (Dogs For Breakfast/Slaiver). Paolo Paganelli (Woptime/Linea77) was also added as a solo guitarist. In 2018 the second full-length of the band »Filthy Flowers Of Doom« was released for Heavy Psych Sounds, which would bring Tons again around Europe in 2018 and in 2019.

Weed Mason – Vocals / Bass
