Napalm Death's debut album. It's very raw, very brutal and very, very, very fast. The album has two diferent line-ups on the two halves of it. A-side (tracks 1-12) - Nik Bullen (Scorn) vocals/bass, Justin Broadrick (Godflesh, Jesu, Final, Techno Animal) guitar and Mick Harris (Scorn) on drums who also played on the second side. B-side (tracks 13-28) - Lee Dorrian (Cathedral) vocals, Bill Steer (Carcass, Firebird) guitar and Jim Whiteley bass.
I fucking love this album, but this music is not for everyone.
"You could say that Galva is musically too similar to Down, but they aren't just paying homage to Down, they also managed to create the best brand of southern-fueled stoner metal. There are some absolutely killer grooves throughout this album."
"Her Name Was Fire is a small band with a big sound. They draw inspiration from such legends as Queens of the Stone Age, Black Keys, Kyuss and Alice In Chains to create electrifying compositions based around the blues and stoner rock."
"The first word that comes to mind after listening to this album is 'heavy'. It's a thrilling vintage-sounding production inspired by traditional doom metal, Electric Wizard-esque stoner doom and witchcraft. The band combines a monumental riffing attitude with psychedelic sounds."
