Doom - Monarchy Zoo (1996)

Heavy, butt-simple d-beat from UK crust legends Doom. Though the Police Bastard 7" has the distinction of being the best-selling crust record of all time (it's true, look it up) Monarchy Zoo has always been my personal favorite Doom record. Starts with the anthemic, mid-paced title track, followed by four short blasts of thrash-y caveman d-beat, then they're out. Perfect.

Also: someone should start a funeral doom band called "D-Beat."

Track listing:
1. Monarchy Zoo
2. Raining Napalm
3. Want Not Need
4. Dig Your Grave
5. Doomed

Lock them up, throw away the key
Put behind bars for the tourist industry
