About 16

A pioneering American sludge metal troupe based out of Los Angeles, 16 is credited with helping to shape the seismic hard rock subgenre alongside accordant extreme metal acts like Acid Bath, Eyehategod, and Crowbar. Emerging in 1993 with Curves That Kick, the group inked a deal with Relapse in 2009 and has gone on to release a string of punishing sludge-rock efforts like Deep Cuts from Dark Clouds (2012), Dream Squasher (2020), and Into Dust (2022). The aptly named 16 has cycled through dozens of members over its nearly 39-career, with founding guitarist/vocalist Bobby Ferry serving the longest and most consistent tenure.
