This may sound pretty vague, but I'm looking for Sludge/Grudge that has that has an angsty, early Nirvana feel. I know most of the big name Grunge/Sludge bands already, so more obscure bands would be appreciated.

little off topic, but you might appreciate Thou (a sludge/post-metal band) as they love Nirvana and have covered "Something in the Way." All their music can be downloaded from their site for free.

Wow, thanks man! I remember liking Thou a year or two back, but I guess they slipped under my radar. I wasn't aware of the Nirvana cover, I'll check it out.

Definitely do check out the sub-pop back catalogue.

Bands that have elements of sludge combined with elements of grunge / alterna-punk metal that i can recommend include :

skinyard (jack endino's orignal band)

my sister's machine (the first two albums are amazing)

green river (dirty sleazy thud rock...check out re-hab doll)

tad (definite masters of grungy sludgy rock)

melvins (dont know where to start as they ahve a huge discog, but their late 80's output is highly recommended - sludge supreme !)

caustic resin (crazy band)

also check out stuff from 90's amphetamine reptile back catalogue

stuff like :

god bullies
hammerhead
early Helmet
killdozer
lubricated goat
jesus lizard
tar


the 90's was fertile ground for such music

The criminally underrated Slug were an early 90s noise-rock band with a sludgey/grungey vibe. I can't find their best song (in my opinion) "Hambone City", but here's a bunch of others:

THIS man, Kylesa´s Static Tension. Angsty and dirty sludge with tons of hardcore and crust influences thrown in.

Also Black Cobra delivers some heavy ass crushing sludge

Unpersons, one of my all time favourite bands
