KOMATOS: Two Hands: LP

Well, apart from some pretty rad solos (no, seriously!) and a plethora of pick slides, this seems like pretty damn passable d-beat/crust worship with some metallic leanings. Nice production, plenty of skulls, lyrics in Russian and English, and involvement from roughly a dozen different labels. Folks into, say, Portland, OR bands like Hellshock or Nux Vomica would do well to track this one down.
