Sangraal ‎– Wolves Of Armageddon LP

Fuck yes. Side project of the unforgiving Gehenna from San Diego/Reno, one of the most legendary metallic hardcore punk bands of the 1990s alongside Integrity, Ringworm, Catharsis. They played raging nuclear warfare black metal with generous measures of hardcore and thrash; in fact they're very similar to the recordings Gehenna did in the late 90s and early 00s, Negotium Perambulans In Tenebris and Upon The Gravehill (especially the latter one). Mike Cheese's gnarly nasal delivery takes on an even more characteristic tone when he sings in black metal rasps, and the music is as violent as it gets to start a moshpit in your living room with Celtic Frost-via-Darkthrone-via-Infest riffs. Speaking of Da Frost, there's also a really cool cover of "Morbid Tales," filled with blast beats and spacey wah leads. Awesome! 2000 LP on Wicked Witch Records.
