WORSHIP VINYL: SAMAEL "Blood Ritual" 25th Anniversary Edition



Purification by the blood! "Blood Ritual" the sophomore album by SAMAEL turns 25.  Time to celebrate and to get a special vinyl reissue (in case you didn´t get the 2011 version, reissued by Floga Records, or if you did but want to fulfill your collector´s vice and get this special reissue too.

This is a black metal gem, not "Nordic" black metal or "Under the Sign of the Black Mark" fast riffing inspired, this is gloomy, morbid, obscure, slow black metal.  "Beyond the Nothingness", "After The Sepulture", "With The Gleam Of The Torches" or the title track are superb.

This anniversary edition reissued by Century Media comes in a gatefold sleeve and includes a 60x60 sized cover art poster. The cover features the LP´s original cover artwork re-created from a brand new scan of the original painting  by Axel Herman, and reveal its more blueish character, which was lost on the first pressing.  An interesting detail revealed is that the artwork has not been polished digitally to show it exactly  the way it looks twenty-five years after being painted.

Apart from regular black vinyl there is a Gatefold white LP+CD+poster version (limited x 100 copies), a Gatefold silver LP+Cd+poster version(limited x 200) and a Gatefold light blue Lp+CD+poster version (limited x 200, Nuclear Blast exclusive)

Bloooooood Riiituuuuaaaaaaaaal...total consecration!

INTO COFFIN To Release "The Majestic Supremacy Of Cosmic Chaos"



Never heard about this band before (shame on me), but thanks to a recent post by Kat Shevil Gillham (expressing once again her good taste) I approached this band and had the pleasure to taste great doom death metal.

INTO COFFIN from Germany released a demo and a full-length so far and are about to release the new EP "The Majestic Supremacy of Cosmic Chaos" on December 4th via Terror Fom Hell Records.

Nothing but obscure and slow death/doom on this 1:19m video teaser, and I'm eager to have this record.  If you want this on vinyl (like me), the LP version will come out early in 2018, the CD version is already available here.
