Filthy Christians where a band from Sweden that mixed grindcore with crust and hardcore punk and this is a review of their 1990 album "Mean" which was released by Earache Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of blast beats being thrown in, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine grindcore, crust, thrash and hardcore punk together, while the lead guitars are very primitive sounding hardcore punk guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are a mixture of grindcore and crust style growls, while the lyrics cover hardcore, drunk driving, and hateful themes, as for the production it has a very raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion Filthy Christians where a good sounding grindcore/crustcore band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Scene" "Drunk Driver' ""The Disease" and "if You're Hardcore... I'm Not!". RECEMMONDED BUY.
