First off i d like to say to all you guys who requested some old posts with dead links, there will be some reposts as soon as possible. There's a thought about what to do with the whole thing but i would like to discuss it with Whispy,(a little hard right now cos he's in summer holidays in some tropical islands giving a shit about crust-hardcore). Anyway,take it easy,have a beer and consider everyday life routine and the usual shit that occasionally comes, it is summer and we all have to slow it down sometimes..
Secondly, this post credits go to John Liedown of Punks on Postcards blog. I always wanted some PoD here but since their last ep is still floating around in distros and "Until the again" is a lost treasure,well i can't resist the temptation..
Prophecy of Doom were a grindcore act from Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire,UK. They started as Domination Factor and later became Prophecy of Doom. As Domination Factor they recorded the "Dominated till death" demo in 1987 and they had a live @ Mermaid in Brum (August '87). Never heard anything of Domination Factor so if anyone of you old punks out there know any further info just drop a line
The first PoD recorded material was the "Insanity reigns supreme" demo(1988) and was followed by "Calculated mind rape and "Acknowledge the confusion master" lp in 1990 (Peaceville/Deaf), the Peel Sessions ep (1990,Strange Fruit), "Until the again 7" (Afterworld Records,1991,DOES ANYONE HAVE IT???), the "Matrix" lp (1992,Metalcore Records) and the "Ego-Death grind" demo (1996) which was recently released by Agipunk in seven inch called "Tri-battle thought-form engagement". According the their myspace, there is a secord Peel Seesion from 1991 unreleased yet.
"Calculated mind rape" was the first vinyl release of PoD, it was released back in 1989 on Prophecy Records and its a two track piece of heavy as hell grinding brutality, the way grindcore should be far from gore cliches and deathgrind bullshit. Both tracks appear in "Acknowledge the confusion master" lp in different recordings,(Hybrid thought is about a minute longer), Shrew (Vox) and Shrub (later on guitar) are now in drunk crusties Alehammer with Scoot (Hellkrusher / Extinction of Mankind)
