Sometimes it's all right there in the title. By my count, the word "shit" is mentioned at least 3 times on this one, along with a "bloody" for good measure. Facedowninshit definitely live up to the name (and title), cranking out sludgy, dirty, misanthropic doom-grind in a haze of unwashed clothing and hash smoke. These forest trolls are originally from the East Coast but relocated to Portland (I think) a couple years back. Now they're signed to Relapse. Whatever.
This is a collection of their older stuff, mostly splits and B-sides. Opening track "Cinders" is an especially amazing song, clocking in at about 8 1/2 minutes with some cello and atmospheric creepiness tossed in. "Born In Fucking Chains" is another standout too, a bit more thrashin' and brootal. All in all, killer jams from beginning to end, brought to you by some stinky hippies with a score to settle.
Dude, they're drinking Schlitz! With a dog! Awesome!
