Oppressive late '90s metal from the hessian hotbed of Davis, California, MISSILE COMMAND's legacy is all of one demo...but it's a fukkn screamer. A churning miasma of distortion, leads dropped in like actual bombs (not the silly mosh metal dive bombs), guttural male/female vocals and unrelenting intensity, Prepare To Be Attacked is an exhausting listen. Breakdowns like the one at the two minute mark in "Henry" conjure up memories of West Bay Coalition stalwarts, but rarely will you encounter a band who so successfully assembles such chaotic (neurotic?) tracks. 

Worth noting: lead guitarist went on to LUDICRA, and the "Electric Funeral" cover is a seriously bold (and successful) move.
