Sounds | Montezuma's Revenge, Sleeping Beauty


Voor een sound slepend en allesverwoestend als lava moet je in Moscow zijn. Dat is de thuisbasis voor de vier zwaargewichten van Montezuma's Revenge. Sleeping Beauty is een herwerking van een nummer uit 2011, nu ingespeeld met de nieuwe lineup bestaande uit Andrew Lockjaw Kontuzov (vox), Ilya Boots (guitar), Andrew “Astro” Gankin (bass) en Anton Yalovchuk (drums). Het nummer is een stoner/doom BEAST in de geest van ht emachtige Sleep en het tragere werk van COC.

S.W.I.M. verschijnt op 23 july via DTH Records.

“Sleeping Beauty (Exhumed)” - is the second single from the upcoming album “S.W.I.M.” by Moscow’s progressive sludgers Montezuma’s Revenge.

The recording is a reimagined and sonically transgressed version of an early piece, which can be heard as a raw demo on the band’s debut offering.

This video was shot during the recording of the single in and around the DTH studios where Montezuma has been recording for many years. DTH sits in an old factory building in Moscow and it is a very special place for the band and many fellow underground musicians, so it was decided to put it on film. The factory’s unique look comes from it’s construction, which began before the Russian revolution and continued after clashing robust imperial facades with stark boldness of early soviet industrial constructivism.


Montezuma's Revenge is a 4-piece sludge-factory from Moscow, Russia. Smudging clubs and studio walls with fat, dirt and sweat since 2004. With 2 LP's in the 2010-s and steady live action the band have put themselves on the map of the local underground community as well as on radars of international style aficionados. In the 10-s Montezuma shared Russian stages with Crowbar, Mastodon, Down, The Shrine, Red Fang and many more acts of transatlantic fame.

Reformed and recharged, Montezuma's electric tractor is back on the miserable track in 2020. It’s coming fast and it’s coming for you!
