S.F.A.G. 81

(Recursion - STRANA1) LP $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

A year and a half after the initial release of Symphony for a Genocide (Sterile 1981), Broken Flag reissued it on cassette, along with entirely new recordings drawn from the audio of the original LP. S.F.A.G. 81 is a radically different work comprised solely of two side-long tracks signaling the desolate introspection that would come later on The Plain Truth and Armaghedon. Remnants of the relentless mechanical rhythms and synthesizer churn of the original Symphony remain, though as if heard from a distance, lost in the midst of a massive blizzard. Strains of recognizable sound drift in and out of earshot like hallucinations, echoing across the bleak stretches of grayed-out sound. Recursive’s remastered and fully authorized reissue is the first time S.F.A.G. 81 has been available on vinyl complete and unabridged. Edition of 500
