Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 4/5 stars[1]

Patrick Kennedy from Allmusic called it a brilliant and daring debut that "assaults the senses like the Swans or Foetus before them, but tempers that art-scum priggishness with clear roots in punk and classic rock."[1]

Tour[edit]

During the tour supporting the album, Charlie Ondras died of a heroin overdose during the 1992 New Music Seminar in New York.[2]

Covers[edit]

Death metal band Entombed covered "Vandal-X" on their self-titled compilation album in 1997.
