The burly, bearded bastards JAVELINA unleashed their sophomore album Beasts Among Sheep last September via Translation Loss Records. Listed in Decibel’s “Top 40 Records of 2009” list, the album is brimming with the band’s brutal brew of sludgy, low-end filth metal as heard on their self-titled 2008 debut. The rabid hymns were captured at Volume Studios in Chicago by Sanford Parker, and mastered at the Boiler Room in Chicago by Collin Jordan. The cover art, as with the previous album, was handled by Jason Goldberg (Olde City Tattoo, The Bad Luck 13 Riot Extravaganza).
