Excruciation grabs you by the collar with the energetic gallop of “Suicide by Drummer” and leads you down some dark, dirty alleys, including twists into swampy, dirty blues along the way. Chock full of fuzzy riffs and sludgy beats overlaid with Ozzy-esque vocals, this album is a tasty sonic treat.
Fans of Black Sabbath and any of the NWOBHM bands will find this a headbanging relief from slick pop and modern production.
Standout tracks: Suicide by Drummer, Worry Garden, Devil Doctor Blues
