After the (third!) infusion of Protes Bengt into the Church, it was only natural to upload Filthy Christian's short output. Great references: two of these guys operated Protes Bengt, and there is a Mob 47 cover on Mean, of which we praise the artwork because it is always comforting to watch a dead politician. We also praise its musical content of primitive 80s grindcore that no fan of early ND shall bypass. Maybe not as mind-blowing as the output of the early UK scene: in 1990 we were already used to the savagery of the genre, yet we always welcome a new collection of short sharp shocks. Lyrically, it is as juvenile and worthless as you can imagine, don't read the lyrics. In short: a good grinding release, not a classic but still a worthy piece for your collection. The following EP is less exciting: they ostensibly tried to jump on the Swedish death metal bandwagon, and these three songs are a competent tribute to the sound, but not a betterment of what Dismember or Entombed were doing then. A good but forgettable EP.
