ARCFIEND - “MORTIFIED WITH HATE” 7” MEGA-LONG EP (1987-90) SE28
In the mid 1980s the Canadian West Coast erupted with a new wave of speed / thrash metal and Victoria BC’s most evil & extreme sounding group of the period was Arcfiend. Led by visionary guitar/vocalist Quin McCulloch first as a trio playing a mix of originals and covers and later evolving into a refined quartet, Arcfiend’s unreleased recordings echoed with greatness — but nothing ever materialized for them beyond a few legendary shows. This carefully remastered mega-long EP collects 4 great songs, the speed metal trio similar to “Pleasure To Kill” era Kreator on A and the technical death / thrash quartet reminiscent of Sepultura’s “Schizophrenia” on B. With a 12 page booklet featuring vintage artwork by Quin McCulloch and the late Chris Stanley, plus flyers, photographs & their story. Lo-fi Monophonic metal mayhem!! Demorgorgon!!! 500 copies. First 100 with an original sticker from 1988!
