While I tend to like their more melodic, later period stuff, I won’t deny that their earlier, pre-Jarboe stuff also had a hell of an impact on me. Listening to several hours of Filth, Cop and Greed on head phones was a mind altering experience. Not an angst ridden teenager any more, but the power of this hasn’t dissipated. Loud, brutal and aggressive. This is what heavy metal wished it was.
