Listenable records is proud to re-release Immolation's much praised album Unholy Cult that was originally released in 2002. The press release reads as follows:
"The album has been out of print for a while and we felt it was time to bring it back in its full glory. The new edition comes in a stellar digipack with a full detailed 12 page booklet with new live pictures and liner notes from the band themselves. On top of that, you get the 2003 Bringing Down The World full DVD as a bonus. A fully loaded package for a killer price. An extra special vinyl edition featuring a picture disk in regular vinyl cover is coming soon as well. Unholy Cult was a landmark in the
history of the band and this is the perfect opportunity to get it for those who missed out."
Metal Blade Records will be releasing a special edition of Fates Warning's Parallels. In addition to remastered audio there will be a second audio disc of live and demo material. The package will also include a DVD with nearly 3 hours of material, including a complete live show from the 1992 Parallels tour and a documentary on the making of Parallels which includes live, studio, and current day interview footage with all the band members, Terry Brown (producer) and Brian Slagel (CEO Metal Blade Records).
Tentative release date is set for March 16, 2010.
To coincide with this release the Parallels lineup, Ray Alder, Jim Matheos, Frank Aresti, Joe DiBiase, and Mark Zonder, are planning a few one-off reunion shows. At this time the only confirmed shows are:
Swedish melodic death metal pioneers At The Gates are set to release The Flames of the End, a brand new 3-disc DVD set, through Earache Records. At The Gates released their definitive album, Slaughter Of The Soul - often regarded as one of the all-time greatest metal albums - on Earache in 1995, before touring the world and abruptly disbanding. Members of the band went on to play major roles in other notorious metal acts such as The Haunted and Cradle Of Filth, before reforming for a one-off tour in 2008 to rapturous response.
Now, to celebrate At The Gates' massively influential career and historical reunion tour, the band will be releasing The Flames of the End, an extensive, in-depth and definitive 3-disc DVD set on February 22nd, 2010.
