    Satan Worshiping Doom and Hippie Killer are both so amazing. I can't decide which is better.

    to name your band Bongripper and not smoke weed would be a historical poser move for the ages. I only met w one of the guitarists in august. He was aggravated at the people who gave him a half ounce of fire explaining how their plane left the next morning. They smoke weed.

    Having heard all their shit I must say Hippie Killer is truly my shit. But all their stuff is incredible, no complaints regarding any of it. They we're disgusting live too, too much heavy.
