Best Noise Band St. Louis 2011 - Catholic Guilt
Since early 2007, south-side demolition quartet Catholic Guilt has been in an endless battle against the sound barrier. Over the years, its lineup and style has undergone drastic changes. With early shows conjuring up thoughts of everything from Crass to Swans to Double Leopards, the band's focus has always been an exercise in sonic warfare. Now in its most realized form to date, Catholic Guilt's sound wavers between strident toxic sludge and black-hole dirge. After releasing Postcards From Copper Canyon on cassette through Chicago's Manic Static, the lonesome four are sharpening their claws in anticipation of the release of their first full-length LP.
