Grotus - Brown

Label: Spirit Music Industries
Year: 1991

Again, by request. And, Phil, I don't know if this is the "original version" or not, so you'll have to tell me. 
So if "Mass" was "Cop Shoot Cop versus KMFDM", let's call "Brown", "Cop Shoot Cop versus Foetus versus Big Black, mixed with Meat Beat Manifesto and sprinkled with Skinny Puppy". It's more industrial, more menacing, more gothic, and less dance oriented than "Mass". All that probably makes it better (at least to me anyway). 
There are a lot of samples on this record, but from what I've dug up, that seems to be the only version out it was kinda Negativland worship, and they went for it on the samples.  Hope it's what you're looking for.

the album cover reminds me A LOT of Ink & Dagger Fine Art Of Original Sin. Felt the uncontrollable desire to share that.

thank you, kind sire. i'll give it a listen to see if it is the original or "clean" version. can't wait to hear it again regardless. they were a great band. i think their best stuff was luddite and slow motion apocolypse, but they are all quite different. mass being the so-so one, as it is more like urban dance squad or something..haha. thanks again bro-man!

when i saw them in the early 90s, the huge fat guitarist had the best soulside shirt on, ever.
