Botch - We Are The Romans Deluxe Edition

Hydra Head, 2007, CD, Vinyl

So on the Deathwish site ( and they aren't even the fuckers who made this ), it says : "Unless you've been living under a rock that's underneath another even bigger rock in a cave in the middle of nowhere, you probably already know what's up with this milestone of an album. Initially released in the year two grand, Botch's final full-length was/is the kind of devastating metallic hardcore explosion that the term "metallic hardcore" could/can only aspire to. In fact, these dudes nailed it so hard that the bands that came afterward had to start calling themselves "metalcore" out of respect. "

There you go.
I might as well not bother writing anything else.

But yeah, Botch was quite a classic band. It's hard to deny that.

Probably a lot of future bands were either directly or indirectly influenced.

They mixed a few different styles together to produce a total headfuck.

It's neither rock nor metal, hardcore nor punk. A product of the underground nonetheless.

Really I don't know who it's aimed at or where it comes from. The song titles add to the mystique and the craziness.

There were people back in 99 or whatever thinking that Coal Chamber or Mudvayne was some out there shit. Some deranged thing. Come on.

It's like Jazz almost. Like some middle-aged deranged schizophrenic art fucker would listen. Like some character Jeremy Irons usually plays on the way to a breakdown or some other disturbance in the tyrany of mass-consciousness.

Does that mean it's good? What? It's not about "good" something like this.

I mean look, there is some bonus disc here on this re-issue that has classics like Saint Matthew Returns To The Womb live.

How can you fuck with that?
