This demo is pretty fucking brilliant. It was recorded on a 4 track recorder by Jason Martin.
ECA played grind/death stuff that was influenced by the likes of Carcass, and Fear Of God. They used sci fi themes, and came up with cool fictional names for the band members. In reality The band consisted of one of my best friends, Devon Cahill whom played in Monster X with me, then he want on to replace Lee as the bass player in Dropdead. Also in the band, writing some pretty brutal guitar hooks was Jim Kopta, who is no longer with us. The dude passed away at a way to young age. Jim was a very talented musician and artist who was also in Hail Mary, and the Browncuts Neighbors. Albany has always been a pretty incestuous scene for band people.
At any rate ECA did a split 7" with another local band called Dead Baby. From What I recall the Corpse had a full length LP that was supposed to be released on the Armageddon Label. for some reason this never happened, and there is a full LPs worth of unreleased stuff that has never seen the light of day. The production to that stuff is superior to this. Enjoy.

  4. nice, I had no idea there was a demo. I have the split 7" and it was one of my favorites. Back then, the idea of sci fi gore lyrics seemed pretty original.

    I really hope the album gets released in some form, I didn't think they got a chance to record it. It would suck if the masters got lost after he died.
