  • Deadwood To Worms 2x12" LP
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Packaged in two separate vinyl sleeves with lyric inserts, the art captures the audio-visual collaboration of Slow Spring // Space Bong X Capital Waste Pictures (

    Filmed in the Flinders Ranges, South Australian desert, under a full moon while conducting San Pedro rituals.

    Clocking in at over fourteen minutes this short film follows a crust punk squad of earth warriors who abduct three powerful businessmen responsible for rapid environmental decay. The prisoners are taken to the South Australian bush and brutally sacrificed in a ritualistic, drug-fuelled offering to mother nature, to right the wrongs caused by the 1%.

    With the Do-It-Yourself, gonzo ethos of Space Bong and film-maker, Liam Somerville, the video was filmed in a series of unauthorized, unconventional scenarios that bring a new zenith of authenticity to film clip production. The filming included an ‘alleyway’, ‘secret show’ attended by around 200 people under a major overpass in Adelaide’s inner city, infiltrating the offices of multinational corporations, and a weekend trip to the southern Flinders Ranges under a full moon to conduct a shamanic ritual sacrifice.

After many years of rehab, isolation and living off-grid, the lumbering doom/drone beast of Space Bong has awakened to unleash their long awaited follow up to 2009’s ‘The Death of Utopia’.

'Deadwood To Worms' showcases the evolution of Space Bong’s intense and focused form of doom, incorporating elements of sludge, black metal, stoner rock and darkest drone.

This is a doom record that transcends all that has come before it, seething with a bitter nihilism that longs for meaning and resolution in a world of violent chaos and urban decay.

For fans of: EYEHATEGOD, Thou, Corrupted, Primitive Man and Sunn O))).

Track Name: Slow Spring
Like a rabid song in a slow spring
We scream love and hate but get all, the still
Of your dark cold eyes as night fades into the sunrise
A new dawn answers me
Gently with the fatigue of sleep
A new dawn answers me

With a mourning of soft white violence
Blind tongues denounce black figures
Too twisted, awe struck by loneliness
Manic with disease in fear of seasons change

We are Non
There is no more life to torture for love and hates sake
Shadows of the fall give over to winters solemn embrace

Dark clouds drift away
Yet spring rises in vain
To thaw the river that dries in the end

Then the silence stays forever
Life is a drone

Life is no more
If I was anything
I’m not that being
The still is now
Will always be

Too blind to stare down the well
That gives rise to the wise and wicked
Descend into a blackened nightmare
Of groans coming from nowhere

We fuck away from the dead and dying
To lust for a shade of grey
Each in our darkened hovel
Too scared to face the light of day

Life is a drone
