EFFLUXUS: Life Destruction: LP

This album is as simple as rice and beans, yet as crusty as a two-week-old baguette. Gymnasium vocal effects with doomsday lyrics and uptuned Tragedy riffage. Song titles like “Shadows of the Sun,” “Darkness,” and “Desolation.” Fans of malt liquor, industrial wastelands, and amateur quilting will enjoy this head banger.
