Their microphone-less screaming alone would have been enough to consider them one of the bands of the weekend, as those inhuman howls could be heard from the hallway outside. The fact that their black metal fury even outclasses what can be heard on their records helps, too.

Just like the other crust/d-beat legends, Doom, Antisect played the Patronaat and nearly torched the place with their fiery, remorseless attack.
