Oscar Garcia about this release: “this is the first and the only true release of Terrorizer LA demos ever captured on vinyl and cd, not a low quality bootleg but an official release, none better than to have it all on FOAD Records. Awesome collection for any Terrorizer LA fan!” The ultimate early years’ anthology from Los Angeles’ 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”). 46 SONGS of bulldozing L.A. Grindcore with a solid Death Metal imprint, all the classics you want to hear included!
