Living Sacrifice

Living Sacrifice formed in 1989 in Little Rock, Arkansas with a lineup of bassist/vocalist D.J., guitarists Bruce Fitzhugh and Jason Truby, and drummer Lance Garvin (all of whom were teenagers at the time.) The band recorded this 3 song demo in 1990 that ended up in the hands of Believer's Kurt Bachman, who in turn hooked them up with R.E.X. Records. Living Sacrifice recorded their self-titled debut in 6 days. It was released in 1991. It's still considered a "classic" in Thrash metal. This band is still active today and just released their new cd "ghost thief" on Nov 11th 2013. This is their 3 song demo plus their first "studio" release on R.E.X. Records Sampler. All songs have been remastered!

More Info (01)

From Living Sacrifice via email 12-june-2021:

If you were the first 300 to order the vinyl, you will receive some of the extras that we wanted to include.

1. First Vino's Show Flyer with Shelter - this was a 1990 show and the 3rd Living Sacrifice show ever. Before the first album. check out info on Shelter here

2. Album Release show with Kinghorse. Almost a year after the first Vino's show we played this show to promote the first album. I particularly like the flyer that DJ and Lance made because the band Kinghorse had a very cool album cover designed by Pushead (Metallica and skateboard artist) and we used their album cover for the flyer. I guess Kinghorse did not last long. Can't find them on wiki.

3. First 2 newsletters from the band. Throwback to when the only way to get any info on a band was to send a phyisical newsletter or 'zine. We did these through the first 2 albums, I think.

4. Re Issue of the first Living Sacrifice sticker.

And finally, here is a statement from Nordic MIssion who helped us reissue this album.

Public Announcement from Nordic Mission regarding Living Sacrifice s/t 30th anniversary edition Misprints and size of print.

Ever since we relaunched our record label in 2017 it has been important for us to make our music available to a broader audience. Nordic Mission is both a distribution/shop and a label, and after 24 years of working in the Norwegian metal scene and trough the 10-15 festivals we do every(regular) year it is important for us to make stock enough so that we also are to sell our releases beyond the christian scene. As record collectors ourselves we like the limited stuff as well, but we try to make our limitedson different specs, and not the release it self.

In the case of the LS s/t rerelease it was originally set to be 300units, but the feedback from all you LS fans out there blew us away, and we soon released that we needed to increase our stock. So in the end we ended up with printing 630 units. Wow. However the last delays in this release was caused by factory misprinting, and the time it took to print the right ones. So all of you that ordered through the LS webshop will find the right inlay attached, and the wrong inlay within. The stickers was also misprinted, and the number of units is wrong. Thanks for your attention!

More Info (01)

From Bruce Fitzhugh, July 17, 2008:

...Death Machine is NOT the new record. Death Machine and The Battle are 2 new songs that we have done independently and released for digital download only. These songs WILL NOT be on the new record that we are currently writing. So the only way to get the songs is from the Bandbox player on the front of our myspace as well as itunes. Yep, they are both available on itunes now. The angel imagery is from none other than Dave Quiggle. We are also working on releasing these songs on 7 inch vinyl.

More Info (01)

Original pressings contained an additional hidden track "Of My Flesh, Of My Heart" due to the manufacturer using the wrong master. It was originally intended to be a bonus track on a possible European release. Later pressings do not have this track.
