Two Mammoth Releases from The Crypt

Two amazing new releases/vinyl reissues to ruin your checkbook... but if you're familiar with The Crypt, you know these are something special, and worth every penny.

First, Japanese avant-garde black metal horde Sigh's classic 1997 album Hail Horror Hail is being reissued on a beautiful deluxe 3xLP.  Limited to 500 copies, 300 will be on black/orange splatter, and the remaining 200 will be on classic black vinyl. All are 180 gram wax, and will be packed in a triple-gatefold 350-gram jacket with lyrics, original artwork, band photos and new liner notes. It will also contain a 12-page book on Japanese occultism and a 12" x 36" "wall-scroll" with the original artwork. All tucked under an obi-strip. As deluxe as it gets.

Second, classic US death metal masters Cianide will have their debut album The Dying Truth reissued for the first time on vinyl. The deluxe double LP will also include their demos, so this is a real treat. Great stuff to have in wax, no question about it. Again, 180-gram vinyl in a 350-gram gatefold jacket with the original artwork, band photos, lyrics, and new liner notes. Also included will be a 2-sided insert with exclusive photos and gig posters, and a 24" x 36" poster of the original artwork. 300 come on gold/black splatter, and 200 on classic black vinyl.

Neither of these are something you want to miss out on if you can afford not to, and they will go very, very fast, if history is any indication. Both can be preordered now from Dark Symphonies. There are some other new vinyl releases that are just out there as well, from As Serenity Fades, Antropomorphia, and A Canorous Quintet,  and having received them last week, I can attest to their greatness. All essential if you have the dough to do it.
