Staff review by
If you are interested in what the whole fuss about NY hardcore was, you should check this album out. If you are wondering why Type 0 Negative still attracts thousands of hardcore punks to their concerts, even though they are now goth, you should also check out this album. Finally, if you feel like fucking destroying the whole world around you - CHECK THIS ALBUM OUT!

Race War and Jesus Hitler my two absolute favourites off this pissed off album.

Great album. Lyrics and vocals are just brutal, and makes me forget how standard some riffs are.
I'm derp.
