Kill All Redneck Pricks

Swansong album (brilliantly titled at that) from underrated and way-ahead-of-their time Washington state sludgers Karp. Fusing a west coast blend of sludge, grunge and post-hardcore with a smarmy sense of humor, the band evokes Melvins, Sloth, Tad and any other of the late-90's genre-bending bands trying to carve their own niche into heavy music. "D+D Fantasy" is the highlight for me but the whole album rules, a tight 30 minutes of pounding riffs to smash your skull. Highly recommended.
