To the Depths, In Degradation Repress

Infester‘s To the Depths, In Degradation is being reissued early next year by Martyrdoom Productions on vinyl LP and CD. The black and death metal classic has been long out of print with the original CD going for high prices on the secondary market.

Martydoom head and Dead Congregation frontman AV wrote on the Nuclear War Now! Productions forum:

Die Hard editions suck, people getting the regular version are not ‘die hard’ enough?? Only black vinyl.

  1. Can you survive the blitzkrieg says:

    This great news, also revealing Martyrdoom to be a great distro. I also have no use for “trinket editions” of albums as I have no more room or use for useless shit. But I also feel maybe their only demo could have been added as it is equally great and YouTube isn’t as good as the real thing.

  2. Special Necrologist says:

    I can’t REPRESS the urge to point out this redundancy:
    “The long out of print black and death metal classic has been long out of print”

  3. Johan P says:

    I guess we already have a winner for the best album of 2017.

  4. 2Pacalyptic Raids says:

    You reckon the swastika will be photoshopped out of the picture in the new booklet or…?

  5. Abominable Goatpenis says:

    Only limited edition pink vinyl is real!

  6. Nathan Metric says:

    Overrated cheesy album.

    1. C.M. says:

      *buzzer sounds*

      This ranks in the top five death metal albums to come out of the American continent.

      1. C.M. says:

        Should read *North American continent. But we can go ahead and toss South America in there too and it still will be in the top five.

      To the dungeon with you!

    3. harsh critiquer of vest patcheses says:

      Yeah it’s very overrated, I’m sure 70 of these will actually be sold while the rest fester collecting dust forever. Not even metalhead hessian whatever really cares about good music or history, it’s all fickle week by week trend chasing. Be your own person, stay away from crowds, enjoy the morsels of greatness like this, and keep your guard up.

      1. Rainer Weikusat says:

        This is quite good. But it’s from 22 years ago and living in the past doesn’t work.

        1. Altar of the Mikropeniz says:

          When did good art start becoming depreciated in time?

        2. I am highlighting this comment so that none may miss its foolishness

          1. Rainer Weikusat says:

            I could try a parable: Why didn’t I buy this in 1994? Answer: Because I was busy digging through things whose time had been about a quarter century earlier. Twentyfive years from now, people will start to discover what happened in 2016 and they’ll certainly find someting. But it’s 2016 now, so, why not try now?

            1. Altar of the Mikropeniz says:

              How else would we have discovered the pyrmaidz n’ shit?

              1. Rainer Weikusat says:

                I have no idea of many people you are, dear we, and what the “pyrmaidz’nshit” all of you claim to have discovered could possibly be. I also don’t understand why this group experience story is attached to a text I wrote.

                1. Rectal Insouciance says:

                  It’s attached to a text you wrote? Did you text How did you attach an attachment to a text message, and make it visible to us all? Or was it only to ‘Altarz of the MikroPenice’?

                  1. Rainer Weikusat says:

                    “These are great mysteries”.

            2. Rectal Insouciance says:

              Rainier, you didn’t buy this in ’94 because… you were born that year.

        3. living in the past doesn’t work

          I agree. Support good contemporary metal like Imprecation, Blaspherian, War Master, Kjeld, Sammath, Serpent Arising, Desecresy, Birth A.D., Infamous, and… Condor.

          1. Rainer Weikusat says:

            and… Condor

            I’m not going to argue about this but Condor is an exception: As far as I can tell, that’s a somewhat metal-styled progressive rock band and I’m totally allergic to this. To me, this is just terribly obstruive complicatedness for the sake of itself.

            1. A friend of mine said long ago that the problem with progressive rock was the rock.

            2. C.M. says:

              The first album, Nadia, is quality work, it won’t let you down.

            3. What do you think about early Iron Maiden?
              They are a metal and prog rock hybrid, too

              1. Rainer Weikusat says:

                If »early Iron Maiden« is supposed to be something like this


                I dislike it less than the Bruce Dickinson stuff. The band doubtlessly plays better than well, but that’s still this ‘rectangular music’ (‘prog rock’ also qualifies as this) which doesn’t harmonize with me. I like things like this

                [something I’m looking forward to get, doubtlessly again universally loathed]

                and not because of any ‘meta-qualities’ but because this rings a note with me. And “some Iron Maiden with that?” would just be a totally bizarre combination.

      2. Thieverer of bank accountses says:

        I’m actually buying mine with your money. Thanks!

  7. thomasw_ says:

    Naw, it is largely underrated. Consider that most metalheads don’t even know about it; perhaps you mean it is overrated by DMU? I still have my original CD and it is one of the finest DM albums — the cheesy horrified screaming on the last tune notwithstanding.

  8. Thewaters says:

    Great album. Some tongue in cheek humour that most of you autists dont get….

  9. Special Necrologist says:

    From the lead single, “Braded in2 Palsy”>>

    “I love violating her ass
    And drowning in oceans of diarrhea
    Fingering the feces from her ass
    … Grubbing on the unholy bag”


    1. Parasite says:

      You know what, that’s surprisingly poetic.. I’m going to email the label and ask them to make an Infester shirt with those lyrics printed on the back. I want the good people of my church and liquor store infested town to read these beautiful words.

  10. ANUSaanite says:

    DMU article of the year… or a long time (Ara really lowered the bar). This is real death metal! Sick.

  11. Parasite says:

    This is a great album to showcase what death metal set out to do in the first place, push boundaries and have no limitations. If this album was coming out the gates in present time you would all be praising it.

    I for one am ecstatic i can finally get a physical copy of this. I HOPE there is not tampering with the original artwork and layout.


    1. I concur. This one has never let me down.
