Unlike their peers Crumbsuckers and Nuclear Assault, Ludichrist was a much more interesting and varied proposition altogether. Astoundingly talented musicians, these boys kicked up quite a hardcore racket, yet combined this with various musical styles ranging from Blues to Jazz, Funk and even a touch of Rap thrown in for good measure. Yep you heard me correctly, Rap. Despair not though, Im not talking about modern day dunces such as Kid Rock and his like, but Biohazard/Anthrax/Public Enemy Bring the Noize style Rap, acts which Ludichrist were in some ways the forefathers of. It doesnt even seem like this album was released in 1986, the aforementioned variety of musical styles making it seem way ahead of its time. What else helps this album to stand out from the rest of the pack, is the sense of humour on display, especially on the likes of Green Eggs and Ham, which is the title of a Dr. Suess book! Thats not to say however that Ludichrist have nothing to say. The album is laden with political/social issues. Everything from Politics, Religion and Race is covered here. Yet it is the aforementioned sense of humour which makes it easier to stomach. The band would go on to release 88s Powertrip, which many view as their best effort and which pushed the boundaries even further. Unfortunately the band would soon spilt up after this to form the more lightweight and inferior Scatterbrain. But Ludichrist is a band everyone should check out, this album being the perfect place to start.
