France's Trendkill Recordings, Germany's 7 Degrees Records and Italy's Shove Records have joined forces to release the final and ultimate version of Tomb of Feathers, the debut album of Oakland apocalyptic blackened crust-doom horde ABSTRACTER. Finally arriving in 12" vinyl format on April 15, Tomb of Feathers was already released worldwide in September 2012 by the US's The Path Less Traveled Records in digital format, on a self-released limited edition cassette tape in fall of 2012, and once again by The Path Less Traveled Records on CD worldwide last summer.
With this imminent vinyl release Tomb of Feathers' monstrous and colossal analog sound destructively comes together having finally found its true home, and the band has stated that this final release version of the album represents its true and originally planned listening realm, being the work entirely recorded on analog equipment and intended to be experienced through the analog medium.
All artwork and packaging design for this vinyl presentation was crafted by Kevin Gan Yuen (www.viraloptic.com) from the Bay Area's revered blackened noise cult visionaries Sutekh Hexen. Based upon original artwork by ABSTRACTER vocalist Mattia Alagna for the CD and tape version, the new artwork of this vinyl release expands further into the band's bleak musical vision and digs deeper into the album's grim subject matter of madness and despair. The LP will be available in an edition of 500 copies only, 400 on pitch-black vinyl and 100 on ghostly transparent grey vinyl.
The Tomb of Feathers 12" LP will be available through the Trendkill Recordings, 7 Degrees Records and Shove Records webstores in Europe and through Trendkill Recordings and the band itself in North America.
