In 1986 Deviated Instinct entered into their first proper studio (even though it was still just an 8-track in someone's spare bedroom) to record their second demo. Driven by an Antisect
and Amebix obsession, plus the fledgling thrash and death metal scenes filtering into their anarcho punk background, these 10 songs were recorded in one frantic day. A darker, more
metallic sound was developing, yet undeniably still staying true to their punk roots. Terminal Filth Stench-Core was born. Armed with a master tape they hastily set about duplicating as many as they could on trusty double tape decks. With bundles of flyers sent out through the mail they were surprised when orders started arriving from all over the world. Through mail order, bags of cassettes sold at gigs, and then being added and swapped through the burgeoning global tape trading scene, hundreds of copies were soon in circulation.
36 years later, Terminal Filth Stench-Core, Agipunk in partnership with Terminal Filth Records (run by Deviated Instinct bass player Snapa), are finally making this classic available on vinyl in its entirety for the first time. With new artwork from Mid and remastered by Bri Doom, a limited edition white/black a/b mix version as well as regular black vinyl will be available to order later in 2022.
