Limited edition of 300 copies on transparent blue vinyl with side-B silkscreened. Official reissue on vinyl of BRAINSTORM‘s debut Demotape “Only the dead see the end of the war” (1989). Among the multitude of cult demos worshipped by the most dogged tape-traders back in the day, this little treasure from former Yugoslavia has always been a highlight here between the FOAD’s ranks. Their style was perfectly settled in the growing Grind/Britcore extremity that was exploding those years thanks to early releases of labels like Earache, Peaceville and Manic Ears. BRAINSTORM was totally devoted to that formula, delivering a manic raw barrage of Grinding HC with a massive dose of riff-oriented Thrashcore catchiness. It reminds of DOOM, UNSEEN TERROR, DEVIATED INSTINCT, HERESY, “Scum”-era NAPALM DEATH and other pioneers of that scene. This link was consolidated by the fact that the singer of the band lived in the UK for a long period those years, attending that scene and bands like DOOM.
