Hailing from ex Yugoslavia, SATANIC LEGION OF DEATH stand as one of the most obscure and extreme Death/Thrashcore hordes surfaced in the mid '80s, worshipped by tape trades of the time as one of the fastest and sickest blasting monstrosities of the pre-grindcore era! They are considered as probably the earliest Death Metal act from Slovenia (and all ex-Yugo) and their first and only demotape was a sort of virtually non-existent cult mentioned on a handful of 'zines and rarely quoted by the later generation of Noise/Grind pioneers (Jan Agathocles among them) among the oldest incarnations of the blastcore formula. Musically, they remind of South American slaughterers like BLASFEMIA, PARABELLUM, HOLOCAUSTO but way faster and more chaotic, with a sinister feeling of evil and gloom surrounding them. Quoting Laurent Ramadier (Snakepit Mag / Decibel Of Death): "Man I surely did ate this recording like crazy back in the day?. That noise was so fresh and we had already been used to the likes of ACRID, EVOKED DOOM, early POISON, ARSENIC and the likes so nothing could frighten us at that point haha! I also recall getting this recording in the mail via Shane Embury from his WARHAMMER days? The cool tape trading days. I had no choice than review it in my zine, D.O.D., from that point because it was so magnificently extreme!" Now finally this ultra-obscure gem comes back from the dead getting the proper FOAD treatment, mastered from the best sounding source in existence. One sided LP with a silk screened original art silk screened on the flipside. Incudes an insert with lyrics, drawings and liner notes.
