The band are dropping vinyl and CD editions of Penetralia (1992), Osculum Obscenum (1993), The Fourth Dimension (1994), and Abducted (1996) on May 5. All of these foundational albums introduced the band’s sound to Sweden and beyond and helped lay the framework for melodic death and black metal today, and preorders of the albums are now available.
There are also some cool changes and Easter eggs that nerds will get stoked about (me included). The reissues feature original art with touchups. Allegedly, the logo on Penetralia wasn’t meant to be pinkish purple—That was just a happy accident.
Penetralia (Reissue 2023) Gatefold LP, CD
Osculum Obscenum (Reissue 2023) Gatefold LP, CD
The Fourth Dimension (Reissue 2023) Gatefold 2LP, CD
Abducted (Reissue 2023) Gatefold LP, CD
While these reissues are exciting, we hope there is more music in store from the band as well. In November 2021, they released their 13th album, Worship. Hopefully, there will be another record in the near future.
