This new edition of “Hrimthursum” marks the start of a series of long overdue digital and physical re-releases of the band’s entire back-catalogue. Each of the nine releases will be available as Digital Album, of course on vinyl and as CD Jewelcase in slipcase, so watch out for more to come soon!
The band states: “We are pleased to announce the beginning of a comprehensive re-release campaign for the entire NECROPHOBIC catalogue via our label Century Media Records. We will be re-issuing the best possible editions of all our previous releases throughout the next year, starting with the long awaited “Hrimthursum” and then “Death to All”. All re-issues will come true to the original versions but optimized for the LP/CD/Digital formats and are fully endorsed by the band (unlike some of the previous versions…) as well as assembled by us. We can’t wait to get these records available again. Thank you for the support!”
NECROPHOBIC’s latest studio album “Dawn of the Damned” was recorded and mixed by Fredrik Folkare (Unleashed, Firespawn, etc.) and once again came with artwork by Kristian “Necrolord” Wåhlin. The album was made available as Ltd. 2CD Mediabook & Patch, Gatefold colored & black LP on 180g vinyl with LP-Booklet & Poster, Standard CD Jewelcase as Digital album, and entered the official sales charts in Germany at # 26, Austria at # 35, Switzerland at # 35 and in Belgium (Flanders) at # 44 upon initial release in October 2020.
