TOTAL HELL: Self-titled: LP

Mar 15, 2022

Unexpected sonic departure from our favorite Southern label, but it makes sense once you know these heshers rub shoulders with the Memphis/New Orleans punk scene. Sounding like half of my cassettes from the ’80s it’s an ugly mix of Celtic Frost, Hellhammer, Motörhead, and Venom. Production from inside a bucket recorded under an upside cross, this is fucking killllllller. The genre nailed to the fucking cross. All you closet metalheads take fucking note, you have been warned. –Tim Brooks (Goner)
