A case of “The best band you never heard in your life”?

Mistreater is one of those bands you never heard of and when you do, you think “how come these guys never made it onto the big stage?”. This sounds as “if Black Sabbath had been born and bred in an Ohio mobile home and raised on a steady diet of smoke and acid”.

The album is available on vinyl from On the Dole Records. Check it out on Bandcamp.

Celibate Rifles

Listening to Celibate Rifles debut album, Sideroxlyn. Even though it was recorded on a show string budget, you still can hear the nerve in the music. I also like that they throw in a saxophone here and there for good measures. The singer, Damien Lovelock, died unfortunately a few years ago from cancer..
