Hellmouth LP

So here we go. Hellmouth 'Destroy Everything, Worship Nothing' LP on Livewire Records. I bought this simply because because Livewire put it out, even though it didn't look like the kind of stuff I like much anymore. I mean, the CD is on Ferret, which puts out some pretty awful stuff. But anyway, I figured I'd trust the Livewire guys' judgement and check this out. There were 666 copies made, with the first 166 being on red vinyl:

I really wanted to like this. I like the feel of this record, and I used to listen to a lot of stuff like this about ten or twelve years ago.

I also like the statement on their myspace page:

HELLMOUTH want to take people back to the glory days of the underground and remind people of the fear, anger and honesty that once existed in a music scene that's since gone soft and has lost all integrity. It's back to brutal basics; making music that flows in the blood. Not punk. Not metal. Not hardcore. A crossover of all three to create a soundtrack for pain, misery and the end of existence.

Unfortunately though, I'm not into this. I haven't managed to listen to it through once in one sitting. I just struggle to listen to stuff like this these days. But I plan to stick with it & try again. I mean, there's a lot to like here.

This LP is hand-numbered out of 666 copies, and I got a pretty cool number - 48. I guess most people wouldn't like number 48, but it's perfect for me.

Reminds me of another record I own with the same number:

I wanted to buy this because it was on Livewire, but after listening to a couple of songs, I just couldn't get myself to spend more money that I don't have. This one didn't seem like it was worth it.
