Hard To Describe, Hard Not To Love

I really love this album. It's strange, funny, heavy, and fun. I thought it was humorous that Decibel magazine gave this album a "?" out of 10. Really. It's a perfect review there, so I won't try to top that.

This is a fun album, though. It's intelligent, heavy as hell one minute and weird and moderately goofy the next. I don't want to imply that this is a comedy album, but it's got an obvious sense of humor to balance the rock.

When singer Lee Dorrian jumped ship from grindcore godfathers Napalm Death during the late '80s, he sought to form a new outfit that would focus on the plodding sounds of Sabbath, rather than the all-out assault of his...
