Though they were a favorite around their hometown of Austin and nearby San Antonio, Militia received little attention outside of Texas during their short-lived existence from 1984-1986. But through the years, the well-deserved praise garnered by the band’s magnificent self-produced 12” EP The Sybling caused a posthumous cult following to emerge around Militia. Released in 1986 on the band’s own Scythe Records label, The Sybling became one of the most sought-after private press U.S. metal records, frequently fetching prices well over $1000 on the rare occasions when one of the 100 original copies went up for sale.
