Crust punk (often simply crust) is a form of music influenced by anarcho-punk, hardcore punk and extreme metal. The style, which evolved in the mid-1980s in England, often has songs with dark and pessimistic lyrics that linger on political and social ills. The term “crust” was coined by Hellbastard on their 1986 Ripper Crust demo.
Crust is partly defined by its “bassy” and “dirty” sound. It is often played at a fast tempo with occasional slow sections. Vocals are usually guttural and may be grunted, growled or screamed. Crust punk takes cues from heavy metal band Black Sabbath and the anarcho-punk of Discharge and the extreme metal of bands like Venom, Celtic Frost and Motörhead. While the term was first associated with Amebix have been described as the originators of the style.

RIP -:- Vantana Row was an American crust, trap metal, ragecore duo – u know- aka VXROW
Vantana Row was really an American Crustwave duo, posted in SF Weekly, East Bay Express, and WorldStarHipHop for their gimmicky drive-by performances, and maybe living in their van. That’s pretty much it.
