1984.. the band that played faster than anyone else in the world, with proto-grindcore blast beats running way faster than SIEGE, REPULSION or early D.R.I… They only left a devastating 7″ called “Stop the world” and a few tracks on the “NJ got it?” Compilation LP and were mentioned as some of the early Agathocles influences or by few maniacs in the tape-trading circles hunting the craziest and most radical sonic atrocities. We’re talking of the legendary C Y A N A M I D !!! Quoting Erich Keller (Fear Of God / Off The Disk): “CYANAMID were probably one of the most influential bands of the 80s – but nobody knows it. When I still was heavily into that “can’t get enuff of noise” mood, CYANAMID blew me away and definately wanted me to start my own thing. The kids sometimes forget that there were basically two paths leading to that “Grindcore” thing – one from the metal side and this was the other one. Everything about their “Stop the world” 7? is the way it should be – the sound smokes, the songs are either outbursts of chaos and energy or then they come crawlin’ in a FLIPPERish way. ” This review really nails it perfectly, because alternated to the short, manic fast tracks you get some downtuned, slower (yes.. Flipper-ish!) and completely unpredictable tunes increasing the sense of violence and insanity that this amazing band was able to create. Many PowerViolence acts of the early ’90s did this not ever knowing that one decade earlier there was someone adopting the same formula in such a brutal way. This FOAD anthology finally makes justice to these pioneering heroes, it collects ther complete discography 1983-2014 mastered from reels and the best sounding sources in existence.. 51 songs! It has it all: “Stop the world” 7″, “New Jersey’s got it?” comp. trax, extra Transaudio studios out takes 1984, “I love NJ” tape and bonus live CD 1983-2014!! Full colored booklet with rare photos, flyers, original artworks, zine excerpts, liner notes and mysteries solved about their “I love NJ” demotape.
