a band who started originally in Victoria, BC Canada. I believe they eventually moved to Vancouver, BC. Fratricide formed in the spring of 1986 and broke up less than two years later, but left a lasting impact on the Vancouver Hardcore scene
- inspiring later members of Sparkmarker, Brand New Unit, Strain, and more. Drummer Eugene and guitarist Eric met in 1985 in the funny punk phenomena known as AOT. When AOT broke up on their ill-fated California tour in the summer of '85,
Eugene and Eric decided to stick together and start a new band playing a totally different kind of hardcore.
They would soon hook up with bassist, Dan, and vocalist, Jonzo. Inspired by large doses of Crucifix, Discharge, the Varukers, Metallica, and Slayer the band started practicing.
Mere months after their first jam they would enter the studio to record the demo that would later end up as the split LP on Pusmort with Holland's Neuroot. Eugene was 15 years old, and Eric had been playing guitar for less than six months.
