Chest Pain- "Weltschmerz" LP (To Live A Lie)
First Pressing, 2014
Black Vinyl /500

A record that I have been sitting on for a few years now, the first LP from Austin's Chest Pain. Pretty technically proficient and accurate Slap A Ham worship stuff with all of the modern approach and touches. Really these guys are a band that I should be massively fond of, and I bought this record based mostly on that idea, but I must say that I can't really get into it as much as I do some of their contemporaries (Vile Intent springs to mind most). I think it may be the recording presented here, and most notably the ugly reverb on the vocals, it just hasn't stuck with me as much as I would have expected it to.
