final judgement - "desolating sacrilege" (1994 Anastasia Records) [rererepost]

been waiting to post this for a long while now.
keep in mind this came out of the 1994 'christian' underground when evaluating its 'kickassness'.
the quality could be better, but it probably sounds a good solid bit better than my cassette rip does.
you can crank this fucker easily.
shout out to tempered steel radio for turning me on in the early 90's.
track 11 is a fast thrashy banger and the weird tribal drumming on track 3 are a treat.

1. Pre-life Vivisection
2. Covenant With Evil
3. I Do What I Do Not Want To Do
4. Habitual Sacrifice
5. Shortway to Hell
6. Past
7. Bloodshed
8. Carnal Conception
9. Via Doloros
10. Ssorcthgirpun4yhtrownu
11. Unworthy

also included:
"drastic dose of reality" demo tape

update sep 2017: given some hope on release.  *fingers crossed*
has seen some long in progress splits and solo things come to completion(and many more still ignored)...well, kinda.

looking for label(s) to release things.  preferably not on tape.
been sitting on the completed government alpha/lackthrow split for more than half of a year. (for example)
  his work is impressive, as always. i hope someday it 'comes out'.

fear of faith - "blind" (1995 running dog records)

fear of faith took a left turn here...but a VERY good (and VERY interesting) one.
without a proper box to put this in, let me just say, i've never heard anything like it.  another reason why FoF was one of my fave bands.

1. dying for one    4:21
2. blind                 4:57
3. withdrawn         5:26
4. i and those        3:38




from the original post:









fear of faith was so exceedingly awesome...i'm tempted to re-rip some tapes and repost...

i feel like the very lucky duck who got a copy of this particular release (thanks to andy/running dog)
far different from the early speed/death fear of faith stuff and also the later 'more conventional' industry XI stuff...this shit here is great in its own right.  one of the few cases where we find a strange juxtaposition...making for some great ends.
hard as can be...softly...#1.


here's a very old review from ballistic test zine....
"A year after knocking the socks off the metal and industrial underground crowds with their two extreme industrial-metal demos Dredge and Tension, Fear of Faith released their third demo, Blind, with a surprising change in style. Gone are the blazing guitars and hard-hitting percussion, while the harsh, distorted vocals and liberal use of voice samples remain relatively untouched. In comes mostly melodic acoustic guitars, minimal use of electric guitars, and a deliberate vocal attempt to convey a greater range of emotion, albeit still behind a guise of distortion.There are four songs here: the title track "Blind", "Withdrawn", which was featured on the Electro Shock Therapy compilation, "I and Those Who Were", and "Dying for One". The easy-listening, mellower music and the harsher vocals provide a stark contrast, but the band effectively turns them into complementary elements instead of the expected conflict or mismatch. The four songs sound rather alike with similar guitar progressions and vocals but this is hardly a problem as the melodies the guitars emanate are quite nice. The song I like best off Blind is "Dying for One", with its cool industrial underlayer of mechanical pistons and bass rumblings.
On one hand, FoF may have lost some fans of their early material with this relatively tame, metal-free release. On the other hand, their creativity and ability to progress musically beyond the confines of an industrial-speed-metal approach earn them greater respect. As it is, Blind is the most distinctive and accessible of the band's three demos.

fear of faith - "tension" (1994 running dog)



one of my favorite bands -----ever..... too bad they never got the production values and studio time they definitely deserved...

*the band DID go on (if only for a little while)... it morphed into Eleven and then Industry XI, producing one demo and one full length pro-cd which i carried in my old distro a.i.musick.... it was all quite good i must admit, but a different animal from fear of faith...*
