Hot Graves – Knights in White Phosphorus

One-hundred percent pure nihilistic rage and gritty filth can’t be bought at the goddamn dollar store. Sure, I know, any band under the sun can throw words like “crushing”, “killer” or Satan forbid, the all-too-cliché “br00tal” that is ground into the dirt by countless youngsters these days.
