Fear Of God - (MAIN) Discography

Fear Of God

Review by Brayden Bagnall

Genre/s: Grindcore, Noisegrind
For Fans Of: Warsore, Napalm Death, Sore Throat, thedowngoing, Sete Star Sept, Agathocles, 7 Minutes Of Nausea

I'm not sure at what point I thought it'd be a good idea to track down a noisegrind band's discography, but hey, Fear of God were only around two years - it couldn't be that bad, right?
Cue me frantically wading through bootlegs, demos, re-releases and compilations I basically gave up and went with the four main, official releases instead.
Formalities out of the way, Fear Of God were a super influential grindcore band from Swizterland that were from 1986 - 1988. FOG played super raw, gnarly grind reminiscent of Scum era Napalm Death, but added a much more caustic layer of noise of the cacophony. The vocals are primitive, guttural grunts and shrieks, the guitars sound like barbed wire being dragged against a chalkboard and the blasts are a constant, pummeling presence. That being said, FOG exercised some quality control in regards to their music (a trait not often found in the world of mince/raw/noisegrind) and despite the rough-hewn edges they recorded some excellent, memorable riffs and tracks.

(P.S if you're after a release that isn't here, hit me up in the comments section and I'll see what I can do. Maybe getting a full discography won't be so bad if I do it in segments)
