Botch - 061502 (2006)

This is a recording of the last ever Botch
gig - it came out as a DVD/CD set and this
is the CD part of that.

The bands that emerged from the ashes
were: These Arms Are Snakes, Minus the
Bear, Narrows and Russian Circles, which
give you an idea of how influential Botch

With hardcore heaviness, they tore apart
song structures and time signatures and
are certainly to be credited with turning
people onto math-rock with lashings 0f
thoughtful metal.

But beating at the heart of this wonderful,
twisted monster was hardcore/ punk +
whatever "post" prefix you wish to attach.

This boasts a "best of set list" and the live
recording is pretty good.
