Kyle Dosier Bastard is a high-energy rage cage with heavy moments of despondence and foreboding. Rhin plays a wonderfully gritty live show, but the production on this record is ultra-clean! Favorite track: Man is Bastard.

xhrl_ Being a huge Melvins fan, this purchase was a no-brainer. But this is not merely derivative Melvins style. Rhin has put their own stamp on this LP. The mesh of hardcore punk and sludge is reminiscent of early Melvins, though Rhin does it with harsher vocals and more fuzz. The drumming/bass rhythms are incredible, reminding me of the quality from the Wright bros. on Nomeansno's best work. That's the highest compliment I can give! This music is sooo boss ... Favorite track: Ted's Shed.

about

Grungy rock n'roll from Shepherdstown, WV for fans of The Melvins, Fu Manchu, Kyuss.

"Rhin sound like The Melvins if they played a sludgy version of hardcore punk! It’s THAT damn good!!" - HeavyPlanet

"the riffs encompass enough girthy distorted fuzz to fill the slot on your shelf next to your favorite Fu Manchu album" - The Ripple Effect

"frenetic, switchblade wielding stoner punk gumbo" - Hellride Music Superstore

"the entirety of Rhin‘s scope can’t necessarily be summarized either by noise rock or sludge. If you let it carry you, it will" - The Obelisk

"fuzz drenched punk sludge/stoner nightmarish journey" - The Sludgelord
