Listen: Floor’s sweltering new song “Sister Sophia”

    On April 29th, sludge metal outfit Floor will return with Oblation, their first album in nearly 12 years. The follow-up to 2002’s self-titled debut comes after a series of intermittent band breakups as well as the formation of various offshoots, such as guitarist/vocalist Steve Brooks’ side project Torche. Already we’ve heard two new LP cuts, the heaving “Find Away” and blood-thirsty “War Party”. Now, the Florida trio have let loose yet another scorching thrasher called “Sister Sophia”.

    Brooks’ voice powers through the dense track, a brawny bark that never once buckles under the weight of the thundering riffs and wild clanging of drums. Take a listen below.
