About this item

Drawing from post-punk and industrial acts like; Swans, Big Black, Killing Joke and Throbbing Gristle as much as the more metallic and punk influences that informed guitarist/ vocalist Justin Broadrick's previous band Napalm Death, the pounding, drum-machine powered sonic assault of 'Streetcleaner' sounded like nothing else at the time, breaking down people's perceptions of what a metal band could sound like. You can still feel the album's broad influence everywhere from the dense atmospheres of post-metal to the abrasive beats of modern industrial and techno outfits, but despite its many imitators, there's still nothing else that quite captures the feelings of paranoia, anxiety and urban decay that 'Streetcleaner' so deftly articulates.
