Vhol - s/t (Profound Lore)
Okily dokily, this is on Profound Lore and it's got John Cobbett of Hammers Of Misfortune playing guitar. That alone should tell you how good this Vhol record is.
What about this from the press release?
What VHOL have created is a whirlwind of upbeat raw, un-polished vicious cross-pollination where old-school hardcore, dbeat fury and punk collide with classic old-school metal (‘70s era Judas Priest meets “Show No Mercy” era Slayer/”Kill Em All” era Metallica).
It's all that and more. One of the most unique metal records I've heard in ages. They totally create their own sound. Y'know, actual creativity rather than just being a pastiche of an older, better band.
