FIRST ORDER was formed in 1985 in Brooklyn, New York, by Andy Elder, Morgan Liebman, Chris Berberian and Eric J. Morgan. In 1986 “The First Four” Demo is recorded at Bolt Studios in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, with Keith Alexander(Carnivore/Primal Scream) producing and Robbie Graham (Primal Scream) in attendance; both sang backing vocals with the band. Same year they also did their first live show at St. Joseph’s Auditorium, NYC. Morgan leaves the group and Bryan enters on vocals, also
bringing rhythm guitar chops; the “classic” lineup is formed! In 1987 “Life Isn’t Fair” Demo was recorded in Chris’ basement, engineered by Chris (The Walnut) Walton. More shows follow in 1988 and in 1989 “First Order III” Demo is recorded, again in Chris’ basement, and again engineered by The Walnut, including vocals tracked in his Upper East Side apartment. In 1990 Eric departs and John Fazio
entered on bass, creating the third and final line up.

First Order shared stages throughout the years with Slayer, Sheer Terror, Mentors, Death, Overkill, Whiplash, Primal Scream, Ludichrist, Life of Agony, Repulsion (pre-Type O Negative), Crumbsuckers, Biohazard, Nuclear Assault and Sacred Reich.

Reissued for the first time on CD, with the 3 demos carefully remastered by Eric J. Morgan, this is a must-have for all serious 80’s Thrash collectors. Includes a 12-page booklet with lyrics, band timeline and photos.
