1994 - Black Arc/Rykodisc (USA), RCD 10302 (CD)Note: Bill Laswell does not play on this album.
The best songs are "Godless", with hard-churning chords ending up with a good solo from Hampton and noticeable background vocals from Mudbone; "Damnation", sort of a Ramones-ish rocker railing against the US; and "Come Out" a hip-hop/hardcore update on the gospels; and "Walk The Water", with a greater emphasis on vocals.
