November 13, 1989 - 2019: 30 years of: World Downfall.
Q: Can your band fit 16 top quality grindcore songs into a 36mins LP ?
A: Hold my high-hat !
Here it is folks: one of the fastest recordings in human history. 1985 had S.O.D.'s Speak English Or Die trend-setting LP and we now get the one, the only, the ugly: TERRORIZER's 1989 über cult-classick World Downfall !
From Los Motherfukkin' Angeles, the all-star underground DIY heavymetal line-up includes: Oscar Garcia from NAUSEA, Jesse Pintado to be in NAPALM DEATH along with Pete Sandoval and David Vincent to be in MORBID ANGEL.
TOTAL GRIND !
After WW3, when the smokes clear and nuclear-winter sets-in, all that will be left is "After World Obliteration", a mosh-pit favorite. Violent yet real, the insane blast-beats and grind riffing is bound to make eardrums bleed. Hop right into "Storm Of Stress" a 1000mph massacre in just 1:28sec of pure grindcore exhibition ...Sandoval is God ! "Corporation Pull-In" is a blazing hardcore punk-vibed track, while "Condemned System" is another piece that underlines social inequities.
Side 2 pushes even harder, "Enslaved By Propaganda" is a riffomania and "Need To Live" and "Injustice" blasts away into Mach IV ! The classic "Dead Shall Rise" remains one of the most revered grindcore tracks ever ...evenso that MORBID ANGEL performed it live on their 1991 Blessed Are The Sick tour, I know, I was there.
Organized chaos within one of the most influential grindcore releases of all-time. The blast started with REPULSION's 1986 underground gore-splatter Horrified LP, followed by NAPALM DEATH's 1987 iconic Scum LP and then TERRORIZER's almighty World Downfall in 1989. The ball stops here, nothing has subsequently out-done TERRORIZER, nothing, no-thing ...this is the end of the line.
RIP Jesse Pintado (1969-2006)
