"When in Hell" (Pangea; 2009)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
Sixteen tracks of multi-faceted grindcore chaos come courtesy of Minnesota trio Ambassador Gun and their latest release "When in Hell."
Hyper and hostile, this troupe keeps up a relentless rapid-fire pace while furnishing their blistering Napalm Death-meets-Nasum assault (“So Pristine,” “Population Control”) with a plethora of contagious riffs exploding from the speakers and a stirringly vitriolic twin vocal onslaught whose apocalyptic imminence pounds through your cranium and sticks in your head long after the disc’s 28 minutes have run out (“When in Hell,” “Delorean”).
Startlingly melodic with a punk rock precipice without sacrificing a lick of savagery (“Taylor Reign,” “Ignorance is This”) "When in Hell" is a triumphant affair specially crafted for well-rounded speed freaks and genre mashers to adore.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
