Hellacaust 

Disgust (Bloodbucket Productions)

This offering from the princes of Halifax's metal scene may have come out on an indie label, but it's major in every other way. From the pummeling opening of "Whore" through to the guitar heroics that close out "What We Say is Real," Hellacaust sound like a four-man hell demon. The production on Disgust is tight, with plenty of low-end to balance the shrieking vocals and guitars. My personal highlight is the seven-minute epic "Millennial Regression," a song full of build-ups before climaxing with some inspired gang vocals. As the preachers sampled in the ferocious religion-mocking "Jesus Camp" exclaim, "Amen! Hallelujah!"
