SOLID BLACK VINYL limited to 300 copies.
Years and years in the making (more than 5!), here it finally comes.. the most exhaustive SCHIZO demo collection you can dream about. One LP, one 7" inch and one CD all in one package, housed in a thick gatefold sleeve with a poster-sized foldout insert full of rare photos, and 'zine excerpts.. a true work of heart just like every FOAD release! This collection compiles all the band's recordings before their killer "Main frame collapse" debut full length (1989), 20 songs of what was with no doubt one of the most deranged, fast and original Extreme Metal acts in the 80s Italian panorama. If you also count in the early stuff by their brothers-in-mayhem Necrodeath, these were the first examples of hyper-speed driven thrashin' Death Metal from Italy, that in more simple words equals "the first blast beats to ever land on the Italian Metal territories". Here you get their complete "T.T.U.T.T.K. [Thrash The Unthrashable – Thrash To Kill]" – Demo 1985, "TOTAL SCHIZOPHRENIA" – Demo 1986, "M.F.C. [Main Frame Collapse Demo]" – 1987 and as bonus an ultra obscure "Private rehearsal tape – May 31, 1985" with completely unreleased tracks! All these treasures mastered from the best sounding 1st generation sources provided and approved by the band.. This monsterwork portrays in the most effective way the band's evolution from their nihilistic thrashing Hardcore roots to the sadistic nerve ripping sonic torment of their cult "Total schizophrenia" Demo (mentioned by Max Cavalera as one of the reasons why he choose "Schizophrenia" as title for Sepultura's 2nd masterpiece). Fans of ultra fast blasting Thrash a la Wehrmacht, early Sadus, Merciless, Sarcofago.. this is a must have!
