This album was recorded in the Thuringian forest. Period.

Sinister post-punk death rock noise.
This Nausea: Brothers (Nashville)(13:32-17:31)

Swedish band is just brutal, so good.

Worst band name, really, 16? Like, wtf. They’ve been around for 25 years, and ended up with this stupid band name.

Darker than their last album, thick sludge doom stuff.
