In 1998, three swine haters came from nowhere to present us with this loudly oinking grindcore opus Explosions In Ward 6, an essay in fast music often forgotten when compared with their later albums.

There's only one word to describe this record: Mayhem. I have no idea where this album title came from, but this is a sick collection of speedy, fierce, vile songs. Drummer Brian Harvey and singer JR Hayes came from hell itself to regurgitate their beliefs in this album. Hayes screams like he's possessed, a statement in wrath kept throughout the entire record . Hell, I even think he screams louder here than in Terryfier or Prowler In The Yard. It could be better though, there's no range in the vocals, his singing would be more versatile later, in Phantom Limb for example.
