Hellshock – “Ghosts of The Past Demo” LP
Classic second album, originally released through Wicked Witch/Feral Ward Records in 2008. A ten track barrage of PDX noise punk (raised from the ashes of Atrocious Madness), influenced by the sounds of bands like Gloom, Disorder, Confuse, GAI, Disclose, Chaos UK/ENT, mixed in with some ultra-psychadelic feedback madness. One of those proper exciting bands that manage to stradle the zone that lies between out-of-control chaos and calculated musical precision. I always love that dynamic: am in danger, or is this safe? Both! Your face will gri n, while your ears bleed.
2021 repress on the band’s own Black Water label.
