This genital chewing LP was recently picked up at a Krvsher gig. “Six dudes from
Texas playing evil shit” is the band’s self
described moniker. I have to say that is a pretty accurate tag. Every piece of
music always brings forth some sort of image when listening. For Krvsher, when
listening I imagine opening a door and finding people being slowly raped and
tortured with sharp objects.
In some ways the music is similar to Eyehategod’s first record, but not totally. The album consists of 4 tracks ranging from 4 to 10 minutes. The best description is that of a painful, mood inducing, droning beat down. Not to rip off Phil Spector, but Krvsher truly is a “Wall of Sound.” This record is equipped with all the brutality filled characteristics: sludgy down-tuned guitars, thudding slow drums, shredding noise samples and drunken, throat ripping yells.
“Hill People” is probably the most upbeat cut of the record…and it is still moves at a pedestrian pace. From start to finish, Church Burner creates a doomsday atmosphere and never lets up. I really like this record a lot, but it does not replicate the sheer force and power of seeing the band in a live environment. Live is the only way to experience the Krvsher onslaught. Earplugs are needed!!
The band is consisted of veteran musicians that have partaken in a variety of projects in the past. With Krvster, all members continue their legacy. The album is available on vinyl (200 grain extra thick black vinyl) and limited edition cassette. Go check it out. www.facebook.com/feastforvulturestx
