With a name like Hellgasm, I knew I was taking a risk on this satanic pastiche tape. At first, I didn’t know what to make of it. It nearly sounded tongue-in-cheek in a Spazz sort of way. Then, after mulling it over, I concluded that Hellgasm is serious. Suddenly, the tape became an anomaly in my collection. Almost the Troll 2or Plan 9 from Outer Space of powerviolence, crust music. It’s bona fide Ed Wood demon worship. My car is officially possessed.
