Deep, deep underground...
From the brimstone Hayseed labyrinth comes Hillbillies In Hell: Volume 666 - a blazing collection of psychedelic pedal-steel guitars, tortured Gospel odes, She-Devils, possessed minors, hayseed barroom homicides, hallucinogenic nightmares and desperate souls. Originally waxed on microscopic labels and distributed in minuscule amounts, these troubled and forgotten troubadours sing of drug-fulled delusions, deathly rivers and Satan's perpetual temptations.
Years in the making – ‘Hillbillies In Hell’ (Volume 666) presents 18 testaments of benighted sinners, timeless tribulations, bottomless graves and the tall flames of eternal damnation.
A Luciferian cache of subterranean 45s, some of these sides are impossibly rare and are reissued here for the very first time. All for your primordial listening pleasure.
