One of my all-time favorite bands, this should not come as a surprise to many of you - it's most likely one of your favorites as well, no?
Hellchild bridged the gap between hardcore & thrash/death/grind with a sense of intelligence - even their burliest/heaviest/grindy-est moments came off with a painstakingly-heartfelt precision.
There was a lot of soul running deep in the work they put out there, and Harakawa is the fucking BEST when it comes to gutturals in my opinion.
His pipes bellow the most beautiful of all pain, desolation, madness, sadness & anguish I have ever known.
If you didn't already, you certainly won't now - this is for the rest of US.
