I couldn’t have put it better myself. This album has been a huge part of my life ever since I first heard it. I was also at that Rotten Records show At Peabody’s Down. What a night. I also saw them at Peabody’s Cafe in Cleveland Heights, of all the strange places to host a southern death metal band. Luckily I had two friends that were as obsessed with them as I was to drive me there. I have a mix cd I made back in 2002. I named it “It’s OK.” I used to trade CD-R mixes back then, and no one understood the murderous sub tones of the phrase that Derrick imparted on those words. I’m sure you do.
