VIC RECORDS 2015 (RE-RELEASE)
Do I remember those days. Do you remember those times. When you still could find every record for reasonable prices at metal markets, while attending a festival. Nocturnus - The Key, Atheist - Piece of Time (even twice), Pyrexia - Sermon of Mockery and Merciless - The Awakening for around 10 Euros and original first pressing.
I even do remember a second hand store during the mid-90’s, where I bought a lot of old and obscure first pressings, among them Wombbath - Internal Caustic Torments, Burial - Relinquished Souls and also Carbonized - For The Security was available. Those were the days.
Nowadays all these obscure and rare records are highly sought and well overpaid!! Every Thrash Records release has become cult and overpaid more than 30 times its original value. Apart from this fact, what do you get, when you are willing to pay this price: Old school Swedish Death metal from the early 90’s.
Tomas Skogsberg, Sunlight Studios, Therion, Christofer Johnsson, Entombed, Lars Rosenberg, Thrash Records, Left Hand Path are all details, which will increase the rating and the value.
In retrospect a very raw sound quality, grindcore influences, outdated music style and recording techniques will decrease the rating and the value.
A classic piece of Swedish death metal history, outdated to secure the nowadays prices.
