Canadian thrash pioneers SACRIFICE will soon be releasing a vinyl-only demo anthology, titled 198666, through Canadian label War On Music Records.

The limited double vinyl release will include the legendary Exorcism demo tape (featuring tracks which would later be included on Torment In Fire), the 1986 Forward To Termination demo sessions including a rare cover of DISCHARGE's 'The Possibility Of Life’s Destruction', and the full 1989 Soldiers Of Misfortune demo sessions. This is some of the best early recordings of any classic thrash act - the tapes sum up the raw power that was early Sacrifice, and showcase the bands evolution from album to album through the 80s.

The double LP release will be strictly limited to 666 hand numbered copies on blood-red vinyl in a gatefold jacket featuring the stunning artwork of Hans Memling. The 198666 2LP will hit the streets October 28th, pre-orders will be available here.
