Metal Blade Records is reissuing Cirith Ungol’s King of the Dead in an “Ultimate Edition”. The “Ultimate Edition” of King of the Dead is being remastered by Patrick W. Engel and Metal Blade is including a DVD of a 1983 Cirith Ungol live show too for bored time wasters. The original CD release from the late 90s sounded fine.
Grand Belial’s Key’s two demos, Goat of a Thousand Young and Triumph of the Hordes, are being reissued on LP and CD by Worldwide Terror Committee Productions next month:
Infester‘s To The Depths, In Degradation has been finally been reissued by Martyrdoom Productions on CD and LP. Do not pay scalpers, profiteers, and fetishists hundreds of dollars for the original CD that cost ten buck a decade ago on Discogs or Ebay. Buy the reissue and case of beer and spin it until you understand it. Progress beyond a three-chord speed metal hooligan who went from playing Street Fighter and NBA Jam in pizza parlor arcades to rehash metal shows at bar grills. Wait, half the people buying this reissue from A.V. 666 are too young to remember Mortal Kombat II in the arcade and Super Nintendo. Just buy To The Depths, In Degradation, stop whining that you can’t jump up and down to Infester like a seven year old snorting pixie sticks, and listen to the record until you reach the depths of hell from a hole in the ground.
Hells Heabangers Records has reissued most of Profanatica‘s works from the third millennium on CD. Including are bonus discs for completionists and obsessive compulsive collectors. Profanatitas de Domonatia, Disgusting Blasphemies Against God, and Sickened by Holy Host / The Grand Master Sessions are all pressed on gold CDs like Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab and DCC CDs from the nineties for maximum shinyness and all include bonus CDs of live shows from the early 90s that will probably be only listened to in the car or as background music at work. The Grand Master Sessions was previously vinyl only and is the one that most of the die hard underground fans who moved onto superior digital technological formats will be picking up.
Dark Symphonies has finally reissued Molested‘s debut album, Blod-draum on CD. A remixed version from the original multi-tracked studio analog tapes is included with the original master from the Digital Audio Tape on one CD. Jump on it.
Demoncy‘s Within the Sylvan Realms of Frost has been quietly reissued by Nuclear War Now! Productions on CD as part of their series of Demoncy reissues. Within the Sylvan Reams of Frost is the most Norwegian sounding recording of Demoncy’s work and is a nice point in-between the classic Joined in Darkness and the controversial, almost Gothenburg, Empire of the Fallen Angel. Nuclear War Now’s remaster of Faustian Dawn last year sounded great so check this out if you’re a fan of Ixithra’s earlier material.
Dark Symphonies announced that they are reissuing Norwegian death metal band Molested‘s only full studio album Blod-draum later this month from the original tapes. Along with the new master from the original analog tapes (not the original CD just compressed for losers with Iphones), a new remix from the multitrack studio tapes will be included on the disc. The CD is available for preordering from Dark Symphonies right now.
Tarnkappe‘s Winterwaker, one of The Best Underground Metal Albums of 2016, was released today on CD and LP from Hammerheart Records. Winterwaker was digitally released late last year and the physical release delayed due to pressing plant backlog.
Gorgoroth‘s Destroyer is being reissued next March on LP and CD by Soulseller Records according to a post of theirs on the Nuclear War Now! Productions forum. Jon “Metalion” Kristiansen, author of the legendary Slayer zine, has written new liner notes.
