Mid-80's hardcore punk band with songs mostly with a horror theme. L.D.S. hailed from Salt Lake City, Utah. Always wondered how life must be for punx among all those religious freaks. Well there were a few known punk bands from Utah like Spittin' Teeth (on The Siren comp.LP), Massacre Guys, Maimed For Life (who have a nice 7" as well).
'On The Cross' was released in 1985 and the front sleeve was made by Maurizio Dodi, member of Italian band Raw Power.
The 'Nightmare' LP was released in 1986. There's an untitled piece at the end of the B-side which I entitled as 'Outro'. My copy is 2ndhand and has no lyricsheet (if it ever came with one).
As stated before, most lyrics are about blood 'n horror but 'Breeders' is a nice stab at those anti-contraception/anti-masturbation freaks who breed like rats although they can't afford all those kids. Reminds me of that creepy woman from Alaska. Her ethics are a crime against humanity IMO. Just like the pope who is against the use of condoms and is indirectly responsible for the thousands of AIDS-related deaths in Africa.
About the band, don't know what happened to them as it seems they weren't around for long. Maybe they became 'good christians' after all?
Oh and anyone knows what the initials stand for?
