Genghis Tron’s “Dead Mountain Mouth” and “Board Up The House” will be receiving new vinyl pressings on July 31. Pre-orders are available HERE. On another note, the band also mentioned that they will be making another announcement this summer. This news comes after the group seemingly teased that new music was in the works.

Napalm Death Announce New Vinyl Reissues

Napalm Death will be reissuing “Time Waits For No Slave,” “Smear Campaign,” “Utilitarian,” and “Apex Predator – Easy Meat” on limited edition vinyl this summer. “Time Waits For No Slave” and “Smear Campaign” will be available on July 24, while “Utilitarian” and “Apex Predator – Easy Meat” will be available on August 21.

A special issue of Decibel Magazine will also be released alongside the reissues. Decibel‘s Editor-in-Chief Albert Mudrain commented:

“Without Napalm Death, there would be no Decibel. They are a personal all-time favorite and one of the core bands central to the aesthetic of the entire magazine. To revisit these LPs upon their release through the lens of Decibel has been a blast. And to have those stories be a central part of these beautiful reissues has been surreal.”

Behemoth Planning To Reissue Their Back Catalog

According to Behemoth frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski, the band are planning to reissue their “back catalogue with massive bonus content, both audio and aesthetics.” The first release in the series is a reissue of the group’s debut EP, “And The Forests Dream Eternally,” which is expected to be released in May.

When I thought that all of those tapes were long gone buried by time and dust I came across this hidden treasure…! One of my garage band’s names was Centaur and we played… Black Death metal! It must have been ‘88 or ‘89 I believe. All I remember from those “session” is that there was a song called “Necromancer”. Now I’m waiting for a friend of mine to bring the cassette player so I can check if the tape is legit. It should be! I don’t think it’s ever worth publishing but for my personal archives and the whole career profile it is pretty crucial. For all the @behemothofficial fans out there, along with this tape I found several Behemoth demo masters, rehearsal cassettes and live recordings from late ‘90! What I am working on now is reissue of the back catalogue with massive bonus content, both audio and aesthetics! Stay tuned! “…And the forests dream eternally” comes out first in May 2020!
