Total Terror

Since Edge Of Sanity was born during the recording of the local hardcore heroes FZЦ, it came as no surprise to the closest circle of friends that some of us eventually would get around making that crust core album with Swedish lyrics. Benny was always bugging us about No Security and with my involvement in Wounded Knee I got to hear stuff like Totalitдr and also engineer a lot with bands like Svart Snц and Anti-Bofors (a.k.a. Disfear).

Since Edge Of Sanity was born during the recording of the local hardcore heroes FZЦ, it came as no surprise to the closest circle of friends that some of us eventually would get around making that crust core album with Swedish lyrics. Benny was always bugging us about No Security and with my involvement in Wounded Knee I got to hear stuff like Totalitдr and also engineer a lot with bands like Svart Snц and Anti-Bofors (a.k.a. Disfear).

The whole thing started with me and Benny Larsson going down to the Unisound place (a.k.a. dusty, mouldy rehearsal room of Unicorn) and we had formed a band (presumably drunk as fuck) called The Pedestrians. This band lasted a few songs and the only official noise we ever made was on the infamous Inavel compilation tape.

After yet another batch of local and national crust core bands visiting Unisound I decided to bring the old ghost back to life and me and Benny Larsson took the old Saab down to the headquarters once again and this time around we were TOTAL TERROR!.

We recorded a demo consisting of the last 7 (???) songs on this album and it became an instant underground classic. “Dц dе din jдvel” (translated into something like, “So, die you bastard”) fuelled with the hate for rapists.

After months of nothingness I decided to give it another go and invited Dread (also in Edge Of Sanity) to join in on bass & vocals to be able to write and cut the full length album more or less live in the studio. Said and done, and one magic evening sometime 1994 we wrote and bashed out these immortal classics of pure swe-crust.

Since both the studio and most of my bands were at an absolute all time high in popularity (Edge Of Sanity won the prestigious "Band of the year" award at the Zeppelin award the same year!!) the idea was to shop around and see what label would be the most interested in our new little project. I donґt really remember what happened, but we never scored a deal with this album. The recording fell into oblivion and I didnґt even have a tape-copy of it for a long time.

Around the time of the introduction of my swano.com page I remixed and remastered stuff high and low, and re-found the love for the Total Terror recordings. I remember doin the cover layout for the record to be released on my own Spam Records, just for fun, but a few days later 2 airplanes crashed into the twin towers and I felt that unleashing an album called Total Terror at that time, was a bit tasteless...

After numerous of attempts to remix the record I finally got the sound I wanted during the summer of 2007. Vic records showed interest and I compiled an album consisting of the demo and the full lenght all bashed together. I spent 5 hours at an airport in Spain trying to figure out what the fuck I was singing/yelling/screaming/growling. I knew that I had kept the original album lyrics somewhere, but I could not find it anywhere. But after a few attempts to finally recreate the words I couldnґt hear, I set off to my little shed in the back and searched it high and low, and there, behind some other documents in a plastic folder, I found the originals, typed and nice!! What I couldnґt find was the demo lyrics, so there are some blanks in there that you will have to figure out for yourself!!.

Well, hope that you enjoy listening as much as we did writing and recording this stuff.
