Props for the band name (the mayor of SF killed by the Twinkie defense guy), but (as I told the store employees), "I need to buy this in case my copies of Lou Reed's METAL MACHINE MUSIC and Neil Young's ARC don't rid my house of guests quickly enough."

  1. Life... showcases a band that has carefully refined its sound, creating an album that is daring and experimental enough for longtime fans, but accessible enough for anyone looking to discover one of Athen's heaviest bands.
  2. Here, all percussion devastates; it pounds away at the insides of Life… The Best Game In Town like a beast caged, packed ready for shipping. Let it loose and all hell’s coming your way.
  3. The best executed Harvey Milk album to date, and one of the most accomplished metal records you'll hear this year.
