His Hero Is Gone - Fifteen Counts of Arson (1997)


A classic of chaotic, heavy-as-fuck crust that incorporates elements of d-beat, grind, and sludge. If you like crust, you already know and love His Hero Is Gone. If crust has never done it for you, they might make you a believer. Features one of my all-time favorite album-closers. Fun fact: "Unleash" was the first mp3 I ever downloaded; it's less than 30 seconds long, and took like half an hour to download.

Track listing:
1. Professional Mindfuckers
2. ... And We Burn
3. Unleash
4. Leash
5. Sterile Fortress
6. Good Samaritan
7. Hand That Feeds
8. Raindance
9. Voluntary Amputation
10. Anthem of the Undesirables
11. Scalor
12. Concrete Cage
13. Abandoned
14. Thieves
15. The End Result of 11 Days in the Mental Hospital

They don't even have to break down our doors
Blindfold and gag us with their force
To install mind-control devices in our homes
We buy them on our own

  3. Classic record, obviously... but a special thanks for the dialup DL memories. Desperately hoping that nobody in the household would pick up the phone during the time it took to get a ~1 minute HC song from Limewire. Yikes!

  4. This is the second best music ever created by humans. The first is obviously monuments to thieves.
