“Two good things have come from Stoughton, Wisconsin: the coffee break and SFN. After mysteriously dissolving in the last few years, they still seem to pop up every now and then with a new release. Easily the most original band in the mid-2000s power violence revival, SFN have found a way to continuously push the boundaries of what they are doing and stay completely relevant. Terminal Sedation was originally recorded for their 2007 demo but this re-recorded version absolutely crushes the original. A great man once told me SFN moves like a glacier; slow, cold and powerful. I couldn’t think of a better way to describe their contribution to this split.
Chicago’s most elusive grindcore band has finally returned with six new songs that barely crack the five minute mark. The sonic assault is over almost as quickly as it begins but not before it absolutely pummels you into dust and tries to snort you like an eight ball of grindcore cocaine. Try to imagine Discordance Axis performing a drive by on Flesh Parade deep in the concrete jungle of Chicago and you’ll start to get the idea.” -Blast For Humanity
SFN submit their first and only studio recording of 'Terminal Sedation.' A concept that has prevailed through the life of the group and arrives here, at a momentous head, surpassing any conceivable expectation. Abrade delivers their most focused and potent material to date. A sorely missed reminder that they remain a top contender for speed, precision, and ingenuity across the genre.
