Guitarists Scott Stearns (ex-Diehard) and Andy Strickland (ex-Rue) concoct hypnotic and powerful riffs on tracks like "Roach Detector" and "Black Maggot," and brilliantly punctuate them with abrasive feedback and leads. Far more vicious than your average stoner group, the band plays a thunderous soundtrack to lyrics that are wishlists of violence against enemies, delivered in Drano-gargling screams. Acid-tinged freakout "Negative D " gallops into thrash, sounding like High on Fire rewinding and Sunn O))) on fast-forward. We Hate You and Hope You Die is heavy enough to kill you, but you'll die smiling.
