Hellshock - Only the Dead Know the End of War

Release Date: 2003
Label: Yellow Dog Records
Release Type: Full-Length

Now what we have here is a nice slice of apocalyptic crust punk with a heavy dose of thrash riffage. The band name is definitely a nod to good 'ol Hellbastard as well as a clever play on the word "shellshock". The band's moniker definitely fits their music perfectly, which conjures up hellish images of war-torn wastelands, skies blackened by toxic fumes and smoke, filth-ridden trenches, and omnipresent death. A good soundtrack to the endtimes I suppose.

Welcome to Trench Hell

The title is an approximation of a famous quote from Plato. Gotta appreciate metal heads that actually went to class.
