ABSU - The Temples Of Offal / Return Of The Ancients [White Cover] (12" LP on Clear Vinyl)
United States | Death (early), Black/Thrash
Following the tradition of our new upcoming Standard Edition LPs being presented in a straightforward yet affordable format, the Crypt is honored to reissue ABSU's 1992 masterpiece "The Temples Of Offal" plus the cult "Return Of The Ancients" demo on 12" vinyl! The LP comes housed in a 350 gram, semi-gloss jacket featuring the original illustration by Equitant. To retain the classic feel of the original 1992 release, the LP jacket is designed in the spirit of the original EP layout with attention to detail - even down to the original typeface! We are presenting two jacket options for collectors. First, the original positive image the way Equitant originally illustrated the cover, and second, the negative, reverse image of that as was used on the original Gothic Records EP. As a bonus, we have included the track "Abhorred Xul," composed when Absu was still called Azathoth, previously only available on the long out of print 'Barathrum: V.I.T.R.I.O.L' 3-LP box set. Also, included in this set is a 12" x 12" two-sided lyric insert with classic band photos, ads and flyers. 300 copies will be on classic black wax, 300 on white wax, and 300 on clear wax. Expect the same level of quality we have always presented: this time substantially less expensive and without all the bells and whistles!
