A masterpiece of raw and rabid, deadly thrashing madness has returned as stunning reissue via Century Media Records: MORBID SAINT’s “Spectrum of Death“! Originally recorded as a demo in the late 80’s and produced by Eric Greif (Acrophet, Viogression), the 1990 released album by the Wisconsin thrashers offers a vicious and intense mix of early SLAYER, KREATOR, and DARK ANGEL that has not lost any of its violent impact.
“Spectrum of Death” is available on vinyl including an extensive 8-page LP-sized booklet as well as on double CD, and digital. The latter two have been released under the title “Spectrum of Death (Extended Edition)” and contain everything MORBID SAINT have recorded so far including the rough mix of the unreleased, often bootlegged second album, “Destruction System“, various tracks recorded in 2010 and 2011 plus the 1992 demo aka “The Black Tape“, of which only 50 copies were ever made.
For this release, founding member Jay Visser (guitar) dug deep into his personal archive and excavated tons of rare photos, obscure logo designs, and flyers as well as telling the history of MORBID SAINT in a detailed interview.
Whereas the “Spectrum of Death” album was specially mastered for vinyl, and hardly touched to preserve its original sound, all other tracks have been carefully restored and remastered by Patrick W. Engel / Temple Of Disharmony (Iced Earth, Grave, Massacra) to ensure most pleasant aural terror!
