GIBBED eternal life 7" flexi (1990)
01.terminate the bloody state
02.manufacture of nation
05.repulse the life
Gibbed were a Japanese Death/grindcore band, and to my knowledge only released this ep along with a split with the Japanese band Multiplex. I know very little about Gibbed, although there are rumors that it was CFDL, & SOB members. Sort of doubtful if you ask me. The songs are rough, raw, and fierce, with very little care about production. This is my second copy, bought it from a friend recently for a price I couldn't pass up. My other copy is home at Moms, so this was perfect to buy and throw up on the site.
In the early 1990's I was in a straightedge grindcore band who were influenced by everything from Bolt Thrower, Brutal Truth, Sinister, Fear Of God, S.O.B., Napalm Death, Citizens Arrest, and yup, you guessed it Gibbed. My buddy Devon and I pushed John to approach is vox in the way the gibbed vocalist did. We def also loved the cover art work(I think it shows in the Human Greed split). I originally got my copy of this from my buddy Roger(the ex vocalist in my band Intent).
