22 years, multiple ep's and splits, 3 full lengths and countless tours around the globe, HELLSHOCK are still relevant and still playing some of the heaviest riffs in the worldwide punk scene. Where most bands in the crust genre seem to lose their fire and grime or simply disband before their prime, this band seems to get stronger with each release, and this long awaited LP is no exception! This album features Robbie Chronic of RIPPER on guitar, adding some really sick solos to the established rolling crust riffs that the original core group perfected years ago. Neck-breaking tempos, sheer brutality, growled, tortured vocals and epic songwriting without straying from pure, unadulterated crust. The experienced HELLSHOCK fan knows he will love this album and that it can only exceed his expectations. For newcomers wondering what this crust/stretchcore thing is all about, I would point them to AMEBIX, DEVIATED INSTINCT, AXEGRINDER and HELLSHOCK. The name deserves to be right up there with the creators and masters. In another 20+ years, this record will be considered one of the best crust records of the 2020s, just as we look back on "Only the Dead Know the End Of War" as a defining record of the early 2000s. The record comes in gatefold sleeve + poster!
