REISSUED ON CD!!! Since forming in 1994, LIGHTNING BOLT has taken a zig zag path to recording, playing and touring. Following in this pattern is Oblivion Hunter, a collection of the band's epic recording sessions over the last few years. From the get-go the sound is amped-up and free: bass sounds jump out of the speaker cones that conjure up ears in alien propulsion systems, nights in faraway wind tunnels, and brutal beatings at Gitmo. Drums and assorted FX pop in and out with the resolve of a finger quivering over the A-bomb button, drunk on power. This LP is one of the few necessary things in your grim stretch of existence, played by a band with 20 years of total conviction to the destruction of your ear drums. No Export to the UK. Received a 7.2 rating from Pitchfork.
