Biography

There are 2 bands under this name. A Swiss grindcore / noisecore band and an American thrash metal band.

1) Fear of God, (often abbreviated to F.O.G.), was a Swiss band, active in the mid-late 1980s. Originally formed in 1987 and broke-up in 1988, but later reformed in 2002. Fear of God was largely considered the innovators of the noisecore / noisegrind genre(s), primarily evident on the acclaimed Fear of God and Pneumatic Slaughter EPs, which were of low recording and production quality, accompanied by an abrasive wall of feedback and distortion. Being one of the earliest grindcore bands of the time, and also one of the most extreme, they received much acclaim. The ‘Pneumatic Slaughter’ EP is the most well-known release of the band, often seen as a groundbreaking of the grindcore genre.

    I'd rather call the GxC band from swiss the real FoG since they were formed about 3 earlier than the band from USA.

    I'm not interested in the metal Fear of God, but I wonder how Erich Keller would feel about homophobes like Noisefiend repping his band.
