Amebix- Arise! (1985)

Seminal debut album from the British crust pioneers, Amebix.  This release is nihilistic as hell, crusty, thrashing, and will assault you in ways only crust done right can. Highly recommended, especially if this is your first foray into the world of crust. When the Baron shouts "The Kingdom of Heaven must be taken by storm!" on "Arise!", I still get goosebumps. Alternative Tentacles Records.
