LOAD -- Pastor's Day

Faceless Wreckerds -- Fort Lauderdale (1995)

Pastor's Day
Saving You From Your Life
Half Bake

"Saving you from your life...Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!"

It's this opening of the first song on the B-side that captures everything great about this band, and they were great. Heavy and inspired by pain, these songs are not rebellion against the government or peers or religion or management or any of the usual stuff, but against consciousness, against the senses. All three songs capture this spirit, particularly 'Pastors' and 'Saving.' Load is at their best on this record.

"Shut up, you are killing meeeeeeeeeee!"
