patient_ot Great album, way ahead of its time. Epic and touching on different genres such as crust, ambient, industrial, etc. Probably anticipated the whole "post-metal" movement by over a decade.

Keenan Johnston Under the mechanical guise of Saw Throat, UK grind legends Sore Throat unleashed this monolith of post-apocalyptic industrial hardcore in 1989. Taking the politically-charged lyrics of punk to a new level, Saw Throat paint a picture of a future devastated by rampant pollution. Challenging musically as well as lyrically, an 11-minute ambient intro gradually braces the listener for the noisy, sludge-ridden punk that follows. Not just a historical relic; this album remains very relevant today.

Donald Hargraves I remember a friend of mine joking that The Minutemen would put out a tune covering both sides of an album after "Double Nickels." Then this band goes ahead and does exactly that.
