Infestdead gets an anthology

Century Media have snuck out what appears to be a nice anthology for Infestdead, Dan Swano’s early ’90s death metal project. Remastered by Swano himself (naturally), Satanic Serenades is a 2xLP on 180g wax in a gatefold sleeve adorned in art by Gyula Havancsák (Annihilator,Destruction, Jungle Rot) in both traditional black and limited edition gold (100 copies).

Scion A/V may be corporate marketing scum, but at least they’re pimping some good bands. Hot on the heels of the surprisingly good Enslaved EP comes “Providence”, another free EP, this time from our very own death metal legends, Immolation. Production is right in line with the glorious “Majesty & Decay”, the download is fast and flawless and it even comes with 800×800 artwork. Can’t really ask for more.

Update: We originally linked to Scion’s marketing page for this, which is now long gone (kind of like Scion). Fortunately for us, we can buy a CD directly from IMMOLATION:

Ancient MORGUE video surfaces on YouTube

Chicago’s own Morgue released “Eroded Thoughts” back in 1993 (Grindcore Records) and in addition to be an overlooked gem in the death metal canon, it’s also a bit of a collector’s item  (a copy just went for $95 on eBay). This popped up on YouTube a few days ago:

According to bassist/vocalist Brad Buldak’s (Absconder) Facebook post regarding the video, “This is actually us playing Eroded Thoughts not Plague Birth…..first time unearthed on the internet via morgue original drummer Ted Vantilburg.”

Morgoth’s back, baby!

I’d read that they were playing Europe and doing the entire Cursed album but this is the first visual evidence I’ve seen. If nothing else, they look great.

Here’s a little teaser they did this Spring to announce the reunion:

And here’s the video for the classic Isolated from “Cursed”:
