Basic Human Error, the new album from UK-based William English, is set to arrive on June 30th 2015. While the album’s 7 tracks mainly consist of sludgy doom, the album also mixes in hardcore elements, such as in the album’s opening track (and first single), “Bud Vessel”. After the short blast of hardcore, the album then takes on a slower pace, and sludge/doom fans will find themselves in for a real meaty treat.

While the band may not be a household name yet, Basic Human Erroris destined to become a must listen for anyone who likes their music thick and heavy. While fans of sludgier bands such as Rwake, Eyehategod and Mistress will find a lot to enjoy, elements of traditional doom are also present, making Basic Human Error a well-rounded release.


William English Is a 5-piece UK sludge/doom band from East Anglia, mixing traditional sludge riffs with multiple metal influences. Add in vocals that combine hardcore barking and shrieks, and you have their unique and thundering sound.
