WORSHIP VINYL: ANCIENT "Svartalvheim" Re-issue


Soulseller Records will re-issue the debut album by Norwegian black metallers ANCIENT.

"Svartalvheim" was originally released in 1994 through Listenable Records. Previously the band release the demo "Eerily Howling Winds", and the great 7" "Det Glemte Riket".  This was the first record that I heard from the band and it was really good. Coming from the then emerging norwegian black metal scene the band had ther own sound and certain touch of originality. 

So the debut full length raised great exptectations and I must say that the album didn´t dissapoint.  We all know the kind of music released on the following albums (if you dont´, dont waste your time) but Svartalvheim  was enshrouded in a grim and gloomy veil, a fresh and solid album with great tracks such as "Eerily Howlging Winds", "Call Of The Absu Deep" and "Det Glemte Riket", my personal faves.

So this is an interesting reissue by Soulseller, comes with alternative cover, available on black vinyl, gold vinyl and there is a picture disc version with outer sleeve. Click here for more info and pre-order. Release date: SEptember 3, 2018.

WORSHIP VINYL: SARCÓFAGO "The Worst" Reissue


SARCÓFAGO´s "The Worst" was the last full-lenght released by the band in 1996, Greyhaze Records will re-release it on vinyl and cassette for the first time on August 24th.

Is considered by many as the worst (jokes aside) album released  by the band, I wouldn´t say so, but there is probalby my least favourite. Since the album "Hate" released in 1994 SARCÓFAGO started to use drum machine, and yes I hated the sound of the goddamned drum machine, though the music is still fucking good.

There are a lot of great heavy riffs on this album, like the ones on the slow tracks, the title track and "God Bless the Whores". There is also a re-recorded version of "Satanic Lust", originally from their cult debut album "I.N.R.I" but though the guitar sound is good the drum machine ruins it and makes you stop listening the track and to look for the original.

"The album´s audio went through a high-quakity remastering process, including audio sourced from original master tapes. The Worst´s reissue also comes with an expanded visual package including previously unavailable photos  from the album´s photo session"

I NEED this in my collection! "Remember my friend, the worst is to come"...

"Succubus Of The 12 Aether" is the advance track unleashed. 







DEICIDE To Release "Overtures Of Blasphemy" LP


DEICIDE will release their 12th full-lenght "Overtures Of Blasphemy".
Century Media will release the album on September 14th, featuring great cover artwork by Zbigniew Bielak.

Vocalist Glen Benton made the following statement regarding the album:

"This album came together over time, meaning we didn't want to rush it. A few people might remember an interview where Steve Asheim (original member, drummer/songwriter) said 'the material is done, but it's just not there yet.' Well, that was the jumping off point of when this album truly started taking shape and the songs became what they are now...complete, compact and effective. As the band pushed forward, so did the writing process and a few other processes which made the record and the band stronger. The result is Overtures Of Blasphemy, perhaps the group’s strongest release to date. Jason Suecoff lended his considerable talents and attention to detail in making the tracking of the songs as great as they can be and the final mix as sonically brutal, yet as listenable as possible. An arduous process, but one well worth the time and effort."

Let´s hope we can hear one of the new songs soon, stay tuned!
