showhornwithteeth Dense guitar tone, long harsh feedback, slow tempo riffs, and lofi recording. What more could you ask for? Favorite track: Room 206 pt.3 / The Grimm Robe/Black Wedding / Mustaine/Thorns / M&D I.L.F. / The DJs.

You may crank up the volume, close your eye and make you believe you were there... now. But, you're not even close.
