A criminally underrated Heavy/Thrash unit from Seattle, these guys kept it going for almost 30 years(!?!) only to pack it in last summer after a million lineup changes, death, bad blood, label drama & whatnot.
Kurdt Vanderhoof plays some seriously tastefully classic metal-infused with gritty chunka-chunka throughout this here, their debut release. While it never got better than this album for me, the first three records are all pretty solid throughout. The fucking riffs on this thing though are fucking monstrous to say the least.
Did you know Lars Ulrich was "almost" in this band?
So fucking GLAD that "the worst famous drummer in metal" couldn't make it to practice often enough...
