Rating: 9 Probably one of the best Grindcore albums I've ever heard.

  Nasty grind.
The solos just tear at me.

  Cannot wait to see these guys at Temples. Think I'm going to lose a few teeth.

  I've always liked this one.

You can tell this is the point where noisy raw as guts Thrash/Crossover was merging into something new (Grindcore). It's also very close to early Death Metal.

I think that's why it appeals to a lot of people too - the music is far more traditional in nature (and thus accessible) than very early Napalm Death or Carcass which was beyond extreme and gave up any notions of traditional song writing.

  The remastered version of this album sounds devastating.

  It was punk-orientated originally which can be seen obviously on the cover art, but later was distorted by changing the cover art to make it more like a death album. What the hell...
