"If God Only Knew The Rest Were Dead", released in 1998 by Ferret Records, began with the same building and dissidence of anger as Disembodied did live. Each of the five songs lyrically painted a different type of failure of hope over a world-ending scenario. The darkness of the EP left Disembodied in a very small club of hardcore. There were no basketball jerseys worn in this club.
For many these days chuggy thumpy hardcore seems like a punch line to a joke, but some bands, and some records stand to be revisited-and you know what, some should be celebrated. "If God Only Knew The Rest Were Dead" is one of those records. I can only imagine that, if this was released today, people would call it "sludge" or something like that... sorry to disappoint you kids. This band introduced me to a whole new world of metallic hardcore. This is a personal rip of mine so i hope you enjoy it.
