Turin-based sludge and doom metal heroes TONS unleash a new excerpt from their third studio album ‘Hashension’, to be issued on October 7th through Heavy Psych Sounds. Live slow, die whenever — but before that, make sure to check out “Slowly We Pot”!
About the new single: “Slowly We Pot is a slow monolith slithering through the mud. It’s a mean song, decisively more metal and aggressive compared to the band’s previous productions. The song ends in a tribal and psychedelic outro to carry the listener through a chaotic psychedelic vortex.“

Following on from their infamous 2021 split album with Bongzilla, Turin’s fiercest doom and weed metal representatives TONS are set to drop their third full-length “Hashension” this fall, six heavy reefer-worshipping songs explicitly praising at the altar of the Green God. And the recipe is still as delightfully filthy and corrosive as expected: a bone-crushing concoction of slow and swampy sludge drenched in enough psychotropics to make the Earth rotation drop off, all tinged with the now foursome’s hardcore punk background. Explosive, addictive and definitely not for the faint of heart!
TONS – New album ‘Hashension’
Out October 7th on Heavy Psych Sounds
TONS formed in 2009 by members of various hardcore bands from the Turin scene. Getting all slow and heavy, Tons deal with weed-related topics with a lot of humor, with a certain tendency to esotericism that characterizes the city of Turin. In 2010, they recorded a demo and in 2012 the first full length “Musineè Doom Session” on Roman Heavy Psych Sounds. In 2013, Tons began to plow European venues, opening the stage for bands like Bongzilla, Unsane, Church of Misery, Napalm Death, Pentagram. The band also played renowned festivals Duna Jam in Sardinia and Incubate Fest in Tillburg (NL). In 2018, TONS released their sophomore album “Filthy Flowers of Doom” on Heavy Psych Sounds, followed by a skull-crushing ‘Doom Sessions Vol. 4’ split EP with sludge masters Bongzilla in 2021.
