Hellbastard is one of the more influential bands of the crust genre. They can be best described as a cross between Slayer and Crass. "Crust" was taken from the album title and was later applied to anything musically, aesthetically, or politically similar that would follow or even if it sounded similar and came before. It's a term I feel is used loosely as anything that is harsher sounding than Anarcho Punk, but still bears the same narrow minded politics of Crass can be called crust. Everything from Amebix to Extreme Noise Terror to Aus-Rotten to Leftover Crack is granted the title of Crust Punk, and while these bands do share some traits, they sound nothing alike. I am a genre-nut, so maybe I'm too picky on what is what. Fuck it. Anyways, take a deep breath of the noxious fumes that fill our air and try to enjoy this ever so important crust album that is simultaneously barely a footnote in the history of thrash metal (which it pretty much fucking is). Enjoy!

I will post damn near anything for local bands who want to get their music out there, so email me at:
Include a link to your shit and don't be a fag, you fucking faggot. Eat a dick. Lick on these testicles. I wanna anally inseminate Miles Ellerbeck (this will probably be here a year or two before he sees it...Love you bro). Also open yourself up to constructive criticism. I'll bluntly tell you it sucks and give the world a link to see just how bad it sucks. I am mimicking the stream of conscious asshole blogger speech now. Fuck you and eat several more dicks.
