Church Whip: Psychedelic Nightmare 12"
Absolutely brilliant LP by this Florida band that happens to feature 2/3 of Merchandise. You won't find any indie rock here... instead, what you get is pretty much what the title implies: dark, trippy hardcore with absolutely gorgeous guitar playing. This band seems heavily influenced by GISM... this almost sounds like it could be the record that came between Detestation and M.A.N.... its a totally potent and memorable combination of punk, early black metal (Bathory in particular), and hardcore, with absolutely perfect songwriting. Comes in a stunning, 24"x36" Crass/Crucifix-style poster sleeve. Highly recommended. Vinyl Rites Records
