The eponymous debut from Portland, Oregon's BLACK ELK is a raging
destructo rock eruption, heavy, catchy, and flattening. This ten
song album contains a creeped out conglom of carnivorous charred
hardcore punk, the sludgy power of primo Pacific Northwest tarpit
rawk (think KARP, MELVINS, and early SOUNDGARDEN as reference
points), twitchy Midwestern noise rage somewhere between Am Rep
Records (circa-1991) and a more rabid DIE KREUZEN, and a goatheaded
psychedelic backwoods black mass/dance party risen to a freakin'
fever pitch. Total crush. Produced by Mike Lastra at Smegma Studios
(EARTH, THRONES, JACKIE O MOTHERFUCKER).
