With summer rapidly approaching, it's a good time to stock up on driving music worthy of loud play... And what a fine place to start this is. Holocaust were the Stooges of the nwobhm bands, and my favorite of the aforementioned. Extremely gritty, heavy, and apathetic to everything except the concept of rocking harder than their counterparts. The songs are well constructed and will cause the most, involuntary, unironic fist pumping and head nodding ever seen in these parts or any other for that matter. The production is hazy and perfect and the stage banter is top notch.This album should be issued to every American male on their 18th birthday, and viewed in our culture as a right of passage.
