I got the Terrorizer cassette sometime when it came out. I used to blast it driving to the mountains to go snowboarding and blast it in the Bear Mtn. parking lot while getting ready. Some people would look over at us with strange looks. The machine gun blasting speed of the drums and the strength of the guitar riffs and the rage of the vocals all make me smile. Thirty years later I still play this tape when I go snowboarding and anytime the desire to play one of the best grindcore albums. Got the FDR record too! Good stuff. I miss the late 80's and early 90's. Stuff nowadays is nowhere close to World Downfall.

Anyone looking to buy this record and are tired of these ridiculous prices people are asking on here should go to the earache website. They are reissuing it in "full dynamic range" and are taking pre-orders now for only $16 plus shipping. I have some of their "full dynamic range" reissues and they sound amazing.

A testpressing sale pushed the max. price up recently. This is the kind of bugs which damages the excellent reputation of discogs.

Is there going to be a LP reissue for this please

Agreed, slimelord. Repulsion was first, and it's still an absolute classic, but this remains grindcore's definitive (up until present, anyway) milestone.

I have the cd version with a red cover backround, blue terrorizer and green world downfall text.
barcode, runout etc. is like the repress: http://www.discogs.com/sell/release/764151?ev=rb
but I cannot find anything about a red version. Does anyone know something about it?

I have a question regarding which version of this album that I have. Mine has the Terrorizer logo in red with the album name World Downfall in purple with the artwork being blue...anyone know?

One of the best death - grind albums ever! Jesse Pintando's (R.I.P.) poisonous riffs, Pete's blastcore beats make the difference. Scott Burns' sound engineering is the 'cherry on the cake' - SUPER!!

Does that mean that the record is available in 3000 ex?
The original 1000 ex on black vinyl released in '89, rereleased 1000 ex on black vinyl in Europe and the rerelease in 1000 ex (700 green and 300 red)? The last 2000 being released in 2002?
I have read something about a japaneese version too...

I have a green LP, but the label states C and P 1989. (It's in way too good of a condition to be 21 years old though...)
How would one see the difference between the rereleased black vinyl and the original black vinyl '89 release?
