DARK SYMPHONIES / THE CRYPT is honored to announce our cooperation with one of Boston’s finest and most revered late-’80s thrash metal acts FORMICIDE, to officially unleash the complete discography. 15 tracks spanning 1987 to 1989, totaling nearly an hour’s worth of raw, classic old-school thrash.
FORMICIDE was a late 80s Boston Thrash Metal band comprising of singer Steve Reppucci, guitarist Kevin Stevenson, bass player Roy Costa with Eric Stevenson on drums. The group also employed guitarist Craig Silverman between February 1989 and June 1989. At the time, the group never released an official product, although members went on to forge ONLY LIVING WITNESS.
Originally released as a now out of print compilation CD in 2006 on Due Process with standard packaging, this new expanded, deluxe reissue CD will be newly mastered from the original analog sources for optimal sound, and will include a wealth of classic band photos, a new introduction from WARGASM bassist / vocalist Bob Mayo, new liner notes from Jonah Jenkins (ONLY LIVING WITNESS) and Frank Sarcia (TERRAHSPHERE), classic flyers and and a brand new, original cover painting from original founding member and guitarist Kevin Stevenson
