"ABSU (US) - Origin: War And Magic(k) Official 2LP Box set

Every great story has a prologue. Before the mighty ABSU, there were two occult metal manifestations... MAGUS and DOLMEN that together, helped to forge one of the the most well know acts in the underground today.

The Crypt is proud to present our further cooperation with ABSU members Proscriptor and Equitant, with deluxe 12" gatefold vinyl editions of MAGUS - Ruminations of Debauchery and DOLMEN - On the Eve of War. Both releases will feature original cover art and layout elements. DOLMEN features the unreleased, original1989 mono mix (the 2001 Vinyl release features an artificial stereo mix as the tracks were only ever recorded in mono) as well as an unreleased cover of Slayer's "Black Magic". Magus will feature the original unreleased mix of "Ruminations..." as well as the 1992 "Lines That Formed Hexagrams" demo. All songs mastered for vinyl from the original analog and dat sources.

Both gatefolds come housed in an amazing, heavy gauge case wrapped, hand numbered box with a new amazing, original Kris Verwimp cover illustration which is also included as a poster. Limited to 300 hand numbered copies on 180 gram half gold / half silver War & Magic(k) vinyl edition.

Fans of ABSU, we offer you 2 amazing cult metal vinyl releases that helped to create one of the greatest underground acts of the 90's!"
