Metal Blade Records has reissued the three Immolation albums that they hold the rights to: Here in After, Failures for Gods, and Close to a World Below. These three records, the latter two with flashier but less pure drummer Alex Hernandez, are some of the bands peak works and saw them completely leave behind the few vestiges of speed metal that remained on Dawn of Possession, which is perhaps still their best overall work. Following Close to a World Below, the quality of the band’s material greatly declined even though their last record with Hernandez, Unholy Cult, was still a strong release.
The CD versions are available now and retain the original mastering. The upcoming LPs have been remastered for vinyl (probably from the CDs) by Patrick W. Engel at Temple of Disharmony studios. All may be ordered from Metal Blade’s indie merch page.
