If Amphetamine Reptile did one thing good besides put out Halo of Flies records, it's bringing a bunch of Australian releases into the States: bands like Cosmic Psychos, Lubricated Goat, Feedtime, and then of course King Snake Roost. "Ground Into The Dirt" is waaay more metal-y than the one other King Snake Roost record that I've heard, "From Barbarism to Christian Manhood"; the earlier record is kinda slopping-around Feedtime/Killdozer type stuff, while the sound on "Ground Into The Dirt" is a lot crunchier and heavier. Recorded by Butch Vig, back when that still meant you'd be getting a pretty good record, before what's-their-names and that other thing he did. If you've never heard King Snake Roost before and want "Ground Into The Dirt" compared to something newer/more familiar before you dig in, imagine taking the beat from the Melvins' "Steve Instant Neuman" and putting Kepone riffs on top of it.
