Grimmrobe Baptists traps you in a prism of fucking devastating d-beat.

Essential. Favorite track: Vicarious Trauma.

Briana I can't remember the last time I was so elated to have preordered an album. I've always been a fan of Baptists, but I still somehow wasn't prepared for how incredible this album would be. It goes hard as hell, both lyrically and musically. Baptists cave in your rib cage with a sledgehammer of truth and when they're done you fucking thank them for it. Absolutely relentless. Incredible work. Favorite track: Victim Service.
