This album is exactly the way slam should be. The guitar tone is chunky, thick and crushingly distorted, and the bass is easy to hear, and only adds to the sheer heaviness. The vocals are deep, guttural and liquidy, and even though it is hard to tell if he is saying words or just speaking random syllables they serve their purpose. The drums do not do a good job of sounding real, but again they do their job and they are a problem which is overshadowed by everything else. The production also kicks ass and is very well mixed. Overall an essential album for any slammer, though this album will probably not make any new slam fans of people who have a preexisting dislike of the subgenre.
