TERRORIZER - Before The Downfall 1987-1989 2CD
Deluxe 2xCD reissue of this total Grindcore classic on FOAD Records, finally back in stock in a new, upgraded version with 1 extra song ("Funeral bitch" - Master cover) that was accidentally missing in the 2014-2016 editions.
Quoting OSCAR GARCIA: "this is the first and the only true release of Terrorizer LA demos ever captured on vinyl, not a low quality bootleg but an official release, none better than to have it all on FOAD Records. Awesome collection for any Terrorizer fan!".
The ultimate early years' anthology from LA's godfathers of GRIND, the one and only... TERRORIZER! This monsterwork starts off with "Collapse", a completely unreleased song from the "World downfall" studio session unearthed from the band's secret archives.. next is an alternative take of their split tape with NAUSEA (1988) that sounds like machine-gun fire in the face and then you can enjoy all their existing demos and early works in astonishingly great sound quality, mastered with total audiophile passion from the best sounding sources in existence!! Some of these recordings are the reason why Shane Embury of Napalm Death back in his tape-trading days got completely crazy for them and persuaded Earache to sign them and bring to light "World downfall" (when the band was already on hiatus). "Countless blast warriors still strive for this classic sound and catchy song structure, but no one can match it on Oscar Garcia's pitch(less) caveman growl! This is the perfect storm of incredible songwriting and recording quality" (Scott Hull of Pig Destroyer / Agoraphobic Nosebleed about "World downfall").
