Another great thing about this little audition is that folks are actually out there, putting up online auditions! I think its admirable and to be applauded! One of the simple lessons that went pretty completely unnoticed with my recent RCA and power-cable auditions of lossless. File B' auditions in this day and age - and yet, even after thousands upon thousands of readers answered my original posts on multiple discussion forums; none - not one goddamned person - bothered to proceed through the steps required to build their own insanely simplesub-hour process themselves!

Check it out. This is one that'll scare your mamma folks: SlugMag has an interesting review of the LP its taken from, I quote:. I was a decent person. This is the sort of album that has the capacity to turn any good Christian into an unadulterated axe murderer.
The album is blues-tinged, southern rooted, stripped down, no-nonsense hard rock at its best. It Kald Jord - Drephjard - Sorgsvart Metallica look like a bunch of pussies and your average speed metal gods look like pretentious poseurs.
