Unlike how Dnite described it, sludge is NOT doom and stoner metal, sludge is unique from those two genres of music. but takes a lot of influence from them. sludge builds upon doom metal, by adding highly distorted guitars and vocals reminiscent of hardcore punk.(yelled, or shrieked, rather than sung or growled) Often mixing in slight blues influences as well. Has a sort of fuzzy sound, with often very melancholic lyrics.(lyrics about drugs, are not uncommon). Dnite did get one thing right, tho, sludge metal does take high influence from early bands like the melvins.

Such sludge metal bands include bongzilla(mix of sludge and stoner), fistula, crowbar,rwake, and electric wizard.
