His Hero Is Gone - Monument To Thieves

First started in 1995, His Hero is Gone is an influential, heavy as shit, hard hitting crust punk and sludge metal band. Active from '95 til '98 the band released several splits, ep's, lp's and made appearances on a few compilations. Monument the Thieves attests to the brutality of HHIG, highly, highly recommended for those who like bands such as NAUSEA.

Head on a Stick is a hardcore band from virginia. They have a more slow sludgy sound to them that I usually prefer, but they do know how to pick things up when the time is right. Listed influences include The Swarm, Ruination, Acrid, Haymaker and Converge.
