Ritual Device were the ultimate in hate rock. This is unfortunately their swan song release. Vicious cover art, spindle art by Frank Kozik, a demented version of “Young at Heart,” sheer terror for your granny. This was a follow up to their split 10″ with Killdozer on Man’s Ruin, and actually was released after their live CD, “Trademark of Quality.” The cover is a set of hospital photos of a severe injury that Lincoln booking legend David Lee Rabe suffered. Ironically and unplanned, this release came out 9 years to the day after his injury. The only way to get it is to get it.
