Around 1984, guitarist Jon Nelson and drummer Amery Smith parted ways with SUICIDAL TENDENCIES to form the band that would eventually become THE BROOD. At that time, the lineup also included NO MERCY guitarist Mike Clark, and the project was operating under the name of SCREAMING FETUS. Having heard an early demo, photographer and SUICIDAL TENDENCIES manager/producer Glen E. Friedman expressed interest, but requested a name change. The group settled on THE BROOD before bringing in former NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH bassist John Flitcraft and replacing Clark with future UNCLE SLAM lead Todd Moyer.Friedman hooked up a deal with Profile Records, and the quartet entered Perspective Sound in Sun Valley, CA to record their lone self-titled full-length-for which the legendary Pushead designed the band's logo. THE BROOD's debut added a unique edge to the Venice hardcore/punk/metal sound through compositions that were slightly longer and more subtly involved in terms of melody and musicianship, thus cementing it's now-classic status amidst this much-lauded niche of the genre.Disagreements between the band and management/label surfaced during the recording, and only intensified throughout a well-received tour with SAINT VITUS before an album was even available to promote. Smith and Moyer eventually left after the album's release in 1986, leaving Nelson and Flitcraft to continue with a new drummer. Plans continued taking shape for a second album with Profile, but with Nelson still sour from the setbacks surrounding the first release, he decided to walk away-feeling that the true vision for the band's sound and direction would not be properly represented nor supported.More than 35 years later, Divebomb Records is ecstatic to finally reissue THE BROOD's cult classic from the Venice heyday. Restored and remastered by Jamie King Audio for superior sound, the 12-song CD will be packaged alongside a 24-page booklet including photos, flyers, lyrics, and an extensive retrospective interview with Jon Nelson. For the fans, by the fans!
