GUILT LUST: Self-titled: LP

Mar 31, 2009

Beefy hardcore punk with bilious vocals, slowed down a bit for added hard rock swagger. If Pig Champion’s passing left a hole in your heart, this record will make you feel the darkness all over again. The eight songs go by fast. By the time I was done making my sandwich, side A was done. I had to pause my eating during side B to fully take in their left-field hardcore cover of “A House Is Not a Hotel” by Love. They made it fit on their record without compromising the menace of the original. There’s nothing trendy or bullshitty about this record. I get the idea that these guys are doing it for the love of it and don’t give a damn if no one watches.
