Seems like there was a lot of this kind of sludgy, Helmet-esque rock going around. Songs that started and stopped, riffs that churned up the pond scum, and the appropriation of redneck imagery. I'm sure your town had one these bands, it's members toiling away in the restaurants and bars of that burg, on the cusp of "making it", if only they could get Tom Hazylmyer to return their letters.
To my ears this band is basically Helmet and Crawlpappy with a dash of King Snake Roost, and the slightest hint of Ministry. It's very ugly, but essential if you are a fan of this genre.
The band was started by the original vocalist of Monster Magnet, and features dudes who are associated with Solarized, Full Speed Ahead, Lord Sterling, Splitting Headache, and Blackout Shoppers, but don't be fooled, there is nary a stoner rock riff on this record. It's all straight ahead, choppy, pounding, thud rock. A great relic.
