to cut right down to it, streetcleaner is a thoroughly crushing, punishing, unforgiving, and unrelenting album. the album cover itself foreshadows the content within - about a dozen bodies strewn up on crosses against a napalm-colored haze background. the music within is every bit as bleak as that image.
featuring gc green on bass, justin broadrick -formerly of napalm death - on guitars and vocals, as well as a drum machine, the duo/trio assault the listener with a soulcrushing 10 track performance. gc's bass and the machine lay down a solid groove while justin's rhythm guitar acts to heighten the tension%u2026 with justin focusing on playing the guitar more like a percussive instrument than it's traditional role. he even uses gold plated guitar picks to give his harmonic squeals even more of a cutting metallic bite.
