Download– Rise of the Serpent Men (1989)
Highly political working class crust punk/thrash metal classic from London, back in the days when Margaret Thatcher (The iron hag) was still pissing on labor unions, repressing strikes and collecting votes from the National Front. I imagine most of the boys in Axegrinder would have been of age when she decided to start the Falklands War. I would like to think that these facts have inspired Axegrinder as much as Amebix,Venom and Motörhead have.
I’m not to well wandered in the crust scene, but I think Axegrinder is almost as infamous as other crust legends such as Amebix and Discharge.
Track of the day: Rip this Hell by Midnight
