Cough was conceived in the fertile metal underground of Richmond, VA, circa 2005. The newly-formed band sought to be the heaviest band ever from Richmond, and took inspiration from traditional doom metal bands (Black Sabbath, Cathedral, Pentagram, Grief, Electric Wizard, Goatsnake), grimy sludge (Sleep, Eyehategod, Cavity) and early metal (Bathory).
The band self-released an EP, ‘The Kingdom’, in 2007, and followed it quickly with their first proper full-length ‘Sigillum Luciferi’ in 2008. Recorded with acclaimed producer Sanford Parker (Minsk, Rwake, Pelican, Nachtmystium), ‘Sigillum Luciferi’ is an ugly, agonizing set of misanthropy set to music. Slight bits of psychedelia had wormed into the massive riffs woven throughout the band's inhuman screams.
Sporadic gigging followed the release before the band holed up in a Richmond warehouse to write the follow-up. Winter 2008 was brutal, the warehouse was filthy and unheated, and the band slowly labored forward with the writing between hospital visits and bouts of near-insanity. By winter 2009/2010, the band had signed to Relapse Records and returned to Chicago, IL, enlisting Parker once again to record the follow-up to ‘Sigillum Luciferi’, ‘Ritual Abuse’. This was a psychedelic doom album with five tracks of sludge, at some points suffocating and claustrophobic, at others warped and hallucinogenic.
Upon its release, the band embarked on two North American and European tours, lasting almost four months. No sooner did these road warriors return home than they hit the road with Buzzoven and brought their doom to L.A.’s Scion Rock Fest.

Grime starts its mission in Trieste, Italy during summer 2010.
Their only goal is bringing destruction to a town near yours.
Their sound is rooted into rotten burial ground and their songs are the sound of a decaying swamp filled with trash.
Their slow and heavy groove is filthy and vicious, guitar riffs are sharp and covered with rust, drums and bass hit with the unstoppable power of a mud avalanche.
Their last LP "Circle of Molesters" was nominated Sludge album of the year in 2015 from Cvlt Nation, and reached the top 5 in many top 10 end of the year album charts.
They made a bunch of European tours (also with Converge, Cough, Fistula, Today is The Day and -16-) and had the honour to play some great festivals, such as Heavy Days in Doomtown, Bloodshed Festival, Barroselas Metal Fest, Roadburn, Desertfest Belgium and Desertfest London. They also played two festivals in Russia with Suma.
They will keep spread their plague in your town very soon.
Be afraid.
