There really was no finer band in San Francisco in the '90s than Old Grandad. The band was comprised of Eric Moggridge (formerly of Epidemic,) Will Carroll (formerly of Machinehead,) and Max Barnett. These three wooly buddies joined forces at a time when playing crushing metal about smoking crack wasn't really in vogue. All three members shared the vocal duties each having a distinct voice and approach to singing about smoking crack. They were ultra-heavy but still retained a sense of humor and irony, but not the kind of irony that has you wearing a handlebar moustache and a Loverboy jersey, asstits. Throughout the decade, OGD (as they were sometimes called) played many a great local show and released two albums and an EP. Volume 666 was their first album and it is as delicious as that first hit of crack on a crisp Mission District morning. Eric is now in SubArachnoid Space and operates his own freak-folk/psych solo project Aerial Ruin, Max now plays bass for Hammers of Misfortune, and Will bashes buckets for the legendary Death Angel. Loved this band, love these dudes. Get this album, smoke some crack, worship Satan. It's pretty simple, really.
