Bone Awl Meaningless Leaning Mess LP
The artwork and packaging of this LP made me think Rudimentary Peni and while the production and delivery is cacophonous, this is primitive and brutal black metal. Think Venom and Bathory with a dose of the Finnish Northern Heritage sound and you should know what you are getting. The approach is to trample you under foot. Misanthropic metal. Lyrics are twisted but smarter than your average columbine killer death metal. These guys keep it kult and underground and have released a bunch of limited cassettes and 7"s, but this is their first LP.
NWN pull out the stops with a huge fold out cover. NWN has got some more bone awl records available and their is/was a double 7" available from Hospital productions.
