"In our de-sensitized culture of violence it seems that a kid has to go to extreme lengths (slaughtering school mates for instance) to freak his parents out. What could a teenager possibly bring home from the record store that would scare his jaded folks these days? Look no further. Leave a copy of UPSIDE DOWN CROSS lying on the dining room table and I guarantee you'll get all the holy water and guidance counseling you need. Hate your annoying little brother? Tell your parents you found this thing under his bed. I guarantee you, they WILL send him to bible camp this summer! Look at the song titles for goddsakes. And they're not kidding. Music-wise the stuff is heavy, down-tuned, Sabbath-influenced. Vocals are high-pitched, kind of whiny and sort of inappropriate. It's good stuff though, make no mistake. This album grooves. Lyrically, it's just as stimulating! For one thing, it's easy to tell which song is playing because every set of song lyrics begins with the title. For instance, "Hanging witches" starts out with the first words sung being,- "Hanging witches". Simple formula, great results. Here's a great lyrical moments: "Kill for Satan... while you're wasted..." Kill for satan, while you're wasted? C'mon, that's really cool. There needs to be more bands like this- bands singing about things that really matter to the kids! What's all this over-emotional soul searching crap that's all over the radio? who cares about eddie vedder's angst? or billy corgan's unhappy childhood! Is he talking about murdering for satan? Or drugs and satan? Or even ANYTHING about satan? Hell no. So he might as well be eating his broccolli with your grandma for all he's worth. This album has all the spirituality you need."
AN OVERLOOKED GEM

"This record sounds like Flipper jamming on some ham-fisted Black Sabbath riffs, with a retarded Jerry Lewis on vocals (Nutty Professor era). CRUCIAL!!!!If you like dirgey, noisy rock & roll, or demented stuff like the early Butthole Surfers (before they left Touch & Go) then this is your biscuit.Their 2nd album is also excellent! Slightly more straight doomy metal but still weird stuff."
