Below is our complete Fuck Off news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Spanish thrash metal outfit Fuck Off is about to unleash a new comeback album. Just one year after the 1988 debut album "Another Sacrifice" was re-issued, the band, which reformed in 2010, will see 3rd full length "Smile As You Kill" released in September through Xtreem Music.
"Smile As You Kill" will contain 7 new songs, a re-recording of "People in War" from the group's very first 7" EP and a cover of Rainbow's "Long Live Rock & Roll," which was intended for a Dio tribute album with Spanish bands that was supposed to come out in early 2011. The following press release was issued about the album:
"All this has been written & recorded during the last 2-3 years with different members but with original member Pep Casas (guitars) and new vocalist Albert as main basis of the album. However, one of the songs ("Gardens of Stone") was entirely recorded by original vocalist Joe.
"The new album follows the traditional style of the band, an old fashioned speed/thrash/heavy ,etal totally exempt from modern influences and clichés, being recorded the 80's way with analogic systems, but counting with the mastering of Swedish gurú Dan Swanö who gave all the songs the heavy and powerful feeling it needed."
The track listing is as follows:
2. Doomed From the Cradle
3. Gardens of Stone
4. Smile As You Kill
5. The Priest
6. We Are Back in Town
7. Impera la Corrupción
8. People in War 
9. Long Live Rock & Roll [Rainbow] More...
The band Fuck Off, pioneers par excellence of Spanish thrash metal, have reached an agreement with Xtreem Music for the imminent release of a CD entitled "A Different Sacrifice 1987-1988," that consists of the songs off the band's first album "Another Sacrifice" as well as the ones from a previous self-titled debut 7" EP from '87. The following press release was issued about the album:
"Due to legal problems in matters of releasing rights on the first album of the band that seems to never find a solution, which in fact made of this album and 7" EP never to be released on CD ever since, Fuck Off have decided to commemorate the 25 years of such recordings rescueing from their old recording masters, the same songs, but with arrangements slightly different to the ones on the album, sometimes unnoticeable if you don't carefully listen to both, but with a mixing and sound with which the band feels more identified (louder and heavier, more Thrash, less Heavy Metal), due to the fact that for questions beyond the band's control, they weren't very satisfied with the final sound on the album back then.
"A Different Sacrifice 1987-1988 could be considered the most near thing to a possible re-issue of the mentioned recordings, but with a far superior sound and production. The booklet includes also a great amount of photos, magazine clippings, interviews, promotional flyers, show posters, liner notes by Pep Casas, etc., which completes an essential release to understand the origin of Thrash Metal in Spain, Cult stuff!!"
The release of "A Different Sacrifice 1987-1988" is scheduled for September 1st and you can now hear an advance track in the player below. You can also hear a different version from the original album at this location. More...
