Integrity Stream Remixed & Remastered Versions Of “Those Who Fear Tomorrow” & “Systems Overload”

Integrity have digitally reissued their first two albums, “Those Who Fear Tomorrow” and “Systems Overload.” Both records have been remixed and remastered by producer Arthur Rizk. “Those Who Fear Tomorrow” also includes new drums from Iggor Cavalera (ex-Sepultura) and Brandon Gallagher (Trace Amount). Fans can stream the records below and pre-order physical copies (out June 10) HERE.

Dwid Hellion commented:

“‘Those Who Fear Tomorrow‘ & ‘Systems Overload‘ were the first two albums released by Integrity.

Both albums were born from a variety of volatile concoctions, visceral emotions, countless inspirations, and unorthodox creative experimentations.

Ultimately, they were both born from our desire to create something comprised of all of our favorite bits and pieces, imaginatively collected from all of our favorite bands.

Aggressively collaged, conjured, stitched and Frankensteined all of our most passionate inspirations into these two musical monsters.

Decades after their initial inception, Relapse Records has unleashed these albums for a new and hungry audience to devour.

I hope that the albums will reveal our raw emotions and religious fervor. I hope that you can bear witness to the purity and unabashed honesty that we exorcized and captured within these recordings.

Outcasts, outsiders…these weapons were forged for us all.”

Øystein G. Brun commented:

“Throughout the years I have received countless requests for a re-release of this album…but because this album represents such a personal and treacherous part of my life, I wanted it to be done with dignity. And here we are: This is the definitive re-release of the debut album of Borknagar.

This release contains a genuine re-master of the debut album, based on the original mix tapes. This has been done with the uttermost care and love by yours sincerely to maintain the original sound and flavour of the album, and solely to improve the listening experience. Working on this re-release has been an emotional ride. While always maintaining a good feeling about the project it has been times of frustration and technical obstacles.

Hours has been spent finding and compiling old pictures, dealing with tapes and equipment that has not been played or used in over 25 years. But now it is done, and I hope you all enjoy and appreciate this release as much as I do.”
