Following the wave of British anarchist collective punk acts in the 1980s spearheaded by Crass and their ilk, Doom picked up the torch for the next generation of punk rock, growing more aggressive and politically charged as the years went on. Forerunners of what would become the "crustpunk" sound, Doom's growling vocals and razor-blade guitar tones met with bashed-out punk tempos and revolutionary lyrics. World of Shit would be the last chapter of their discography, and one of the more fully realized. With production less wooden than most of their crust brethren, the fury of Doom's last stand comes through in both their blazing ("In It for Cash") and sludgy ("Just Another Day") moments.
