Serpent Men

Axegrinder's influence on the crust scene is probably second only to the mighty Amebix, this is evidenced by their logo's presence on butt-flaps and backpatches on pokey leathers the world over. Axegrinder sounded like Amebix. Maybe a bit more metallic, but still...like Amebix. Seeing how Amebix ruled and really only made three albums then you might want some Axegrinder in your life.

the first time i heard this album i thought "what an amebix rip-off"and just kinda passed it off as nothing but musical plagiarism.....and then i came around to yr line of thinking, pretty much what you said in the last sentence, and now i love this album...hellstorm!

have you heard the re-issue with the bonus tracks of newer material? the newer stuff sounds pretty Voivod-ish. pretty awesome. and either way, a total classic.

I've been wanting this. Thank you. Btw, I saw White Ring has a new mix. I haven't listened to it yet but I figured you'd be interested.

something else in this vein is the new Misery. It's a crusher.
