minus - jesus christ bobby

released 2001

i'm gonna go out on a limb and say that this would have to be the most extreme (though not the heaviest) release put out on a certain label

they were being touted as the "new refused" at one time...though if they had to be compared to a band now...i'd go as far comparing them to converge if jacob bannon's vocals were more dragging your nails across a chalkboard and less BRAH RAAAH SHAAAAH!...but totally understandable somewhat

though sadly after this album...the band pretty much ditched the vocal style and the intensity and adopted a more straightforward rawk and roll style...they'd actually fit in more with the previously (un)mentioned label's roster nowadays

this is perfect drive time commute music

(they share a homeland with bjork...not refused...someone please take my passport away from me forcefully)
