Besides this album cover being one of my all time favorites, Saint Vitus is usually playing on my itunes every night. These guys were signed to SST records and toured with Black Flag in the mid 1980s. Imagine what the punk kids thought seeing these Cheech and Chong looking hippies playing slow heavy metal before BF went on. Amazing. The first two albums are essential, but my choice of their best is the second, HALLOW'S VICTIM. The cover looks like something you might find in a San Francisco thrift store in 1973, but it was released in 1985. It sounds like Black Sabbath being played by a gang of Hells Angels, at an Altamont after-party held in a dumpster. Dark and Heavy.
