Punishing Sabbath-tinged blasting hc sludge. This release compiles the earliest recordings of this overlooked UK sludge-core band. 12 tracks from the split EP'S and demo. One of the most intense and pissed off sounding live bands. A dual vocaled assault powered by brutal drumming, savage and memorable riffs, and a relentless delivery of raw aggression. Furious thrashing hardcore combined with heavy Sabbathy doomy dirges, druggy sludgy Eyehategod groove, weirdly lounge-y interludes and lots of beautifully fucked up riffage.This record combines the speed and brutality of Infest and Crossed out with the negativity and venom of Eyehategod and the hooks of Black Sabbath. This is brutal music.
