Found my Formicide demos the other day...they were BY FAR the BEST thrash metal to come out of Boston BAR NONE. Kevin was so damn talented on guitar and the production was tighter than a gnat's ass. Maybe a cd is in order...anyone remember this amazing band?

could someone please hook me up?
I've been looking for this band for a while.

80's thrash > life

Jim the Wargasm CD you made for me still reigns,
all I have of possible interest to you for trade are
--------------------------------------------------
Metallica Stockholm 9/26/86 Cliff's last gig
Slayer Hollywood Palladium 4/19/85
Slayer Nowloft Baltimore 11/9/84
Slayer Birmingham 4/19/87
Venom Ritz NY 4/4/86

all on cassette rather than CD. If you have 'em already I'll send ya some media/postage $$$?

do you want a tape or cd? I can make a tape of the 2 demos BUT...there was a NEVER RELEASED 3 song demo before they broke up that is very rough and a low mix...I am trying to find someone with recording/mixing equipment to bring those songs up to par so to speak...if you don't care I can make a tape...if you want to wait, I'll be here and keep you posted...and yes...'80's thrash =life

just spoke to Ken at Wonderdrug...in Jan, we will optimize the demos and burn them onto a cd...if you want to wait, it's well worth it...songs like "Dying System" were NEVER released and are certainly worth having

Hey, if you're goin into Ken and spending your own dime just to burn a few CD-Rs for people, killer, I was assuming you were talking about doing a pressed CD.

No not pressing a cd and not costing me a dime...Ken is doing it as a favor. I'll gladly make copies for people who want them just because they were THE BEST THRASH BAND FROM BOSTON BAR NONE. Kinda like tape trading...wish they were still around...

Killer. Why not try to track em down and do it up all pro-like though? If the sound is good enough, that'd be cool.

i'lll take a copy of that tooseeing it has some stuff i don't have by them , altho WARGASM were mass' best thrash band
 ___________________________________
[Dec 10,2004 10:05am - litacore ""]
from what I've heard OF Formicide they were definitely contenders

right now though Wargasm's top of the heap for me, too

i like Wargasm but I thought Formicide just had that little extra something...either way 2 great bands

Formicide? those muthafuggas from south tewksbury?
Thats some hefty shit, those dudes kicked my ass behind the little peach in the 80's cause I didn't have the cash to buy their demo.

In all seriousness, that shit is killer. I grew up down the street from kevin and eric, a pivotal part in my early interest in metal/thrash/punk/hardcore/whatever the frig you want to call it.
Seriously underrated in the day, and appreciated now by the few.

I do. They sang about ants and they fucking ruled. I remember seeing them in the late 80s at Dracut high school with Atomicaust, Hearing Impaired, and Blatant Disregard. Good times.

[Jul 13,2005 11:45pm - Septicemic ""]
Haha, Atomicaust, I went to school w/them, they were killer back in the day. And Formicide kicked my ass. The only song that comes to mind right now is Frozen Death.

[Jul 14,2005 12:15pm - duff138  ""]
I was at that Dracut show too. do you remember there was a guy on right side of the stage playing air guitar for the whole show!
Actually have the Blatant Disregard, Atomicaust, and Hearing Impaired demo still.
I have the 1st formicide demo and maybe the 2nd one, but would love this stuff on disc. I never knew "Dying System" was a Formicide sound, I assumed it was just an Only Living Witness song.
Who else has the Blind Surgeon Demo, with Jonah Jenkins on vocals? Amazing shit!

 ___________________________________

I have some cool pictures I took of Formicide at The Channel. Eric's hanging from the Woman's bathroom sign!
 ______________________________________________
[Jul 14,2005 12:29pm - DrinkHardThrashHard ""]
Dude, I would also love some of those demos on disc.

I remember Blind Surgeon. Do you remember the band Deslok? Cardinal Syn who was around here for awhile? Peanut Butter Anarchy? Subjugator? Demise, who had a silly song 'Pizza Guy'?

Anyone remember a local Methuen band called Krucix? They played with Atomicaust a few times when they became Nerve Womb.

I miss me some Atomicaust and Formicide, I'll tell you that.

[Jul 14,2005 12:36pm - anonymous  ""]
deslok- have that demo too. just discovered Daryll from Milligram was the guitarist, and Eric from Grief had played with them, but was not on the demo.
after these weekend I'll try and get all my demo i have onto the computer. i think i still have:

formicide
atmocaust
nervewomb
blind surgeon
chapter 4
chief suck face
wargasm
psychosis
deslok
blatant disregard
hearing impaired
afterbirth

probably more too, just can't think of them
 _____________________________________
[Jul 14,2005 12:43pm - anonymous  ""]
a few more:

Only living witness - both demos (prone mortal form demo songs sound better than the one on the album, i think)
Blind surgeon- 2 demos- one with J.Jenkins on vocals

I remember All of it. I should know. I played guitar for Hearing
Impaired at that show. We threw a 4 foot diameter beach ball into the crowd,
and I wasn't watching it. It came back and hit the neck of my guitar . Then the tuning peg cut my eye open. I was bleeding like a stuck pig.
I had to use Loie the drummer's shirt to wipe the blood from my eye.
But I played the whole set ! If you have the hearing Impaired
demo, there's a song called If Frank Sinatra was a Skinhead. Kevin
from Formicide did the Frank Sinatra impersonation on that.
Unfortunately, I no longer have a playable Hearing Impaired tape
anymore. Its all warbly and stuff. If anyone has it on cd or something,
please e-mail me at: recklessrob@juno.com

We did alot of shows with them, I think I still have some of their
tapes both old( orig vocs) and not so old(with Jonah J.)

Blind Surgeon were good. I saw they play once, with Jonah on vocals, with Hearing Impaired.
Rob was DAve not playing guitar at that show or was there 2 guitarist for that Dracut show? too long ago to remember for me!

I have the first two tapes...... Eric (the drummer) stopped by my store, picked them up and burned them onto cd. He also gave me demo number 3 (after his brother left the band just before Only Living Witness was formed). So, I've got all 3 on cd. I don't have a cd burner yet. But, I'm sure I could bring it over to the Screaming Ferret studios and make copies........

Good to see some of you old 'n's still around! Duff, I did play in Hearing Impaired at that show too, we had 2 guitar players. I can' t believe Rob is still around these parts and posting on RTTP!!!! I have tons of old demos from the 80's (punk, hardcore, & metal)so if anyone is looking for something specific, drop me a line. I have pretty much every demo mentioned in this thread and then some. I used to do a radio show on WJUL in Lowell called "Rotten to the 'Core" so I got hundreds of demos and interviewed just about all the New England area bands playing extreme music back in those days....Thanks to everyone who came out to see Ichabod w/ Today is The Day a couple o' weeks back by the way.

anyone ever make those CDs available? I have tapes but they're in bad shape. I also have maybe 40 minutes of video from an old band practice (before the name Formicide even existed). You'd know the songs and most of the faces though. I really need to get that video capture card one of these days........
