The Crypt is proud to announce for the first time on Vinyl, the legendary demo and MCD from Dutch extreme metal act PHLEBOTOMIZED from the Rotterdam. Formed in 1989 as Bacterial Disease as a death / grindcore band, they changed their name to PHLEBOTOMIZED in 1990. They released 2 demos tapes, an e.p., a mini CD and 2 full length albums during 1991 - 1997. PHLEBOTOMIZED was known for their dominant use of keyboards (not like The Gathering nor like Nocturnus, maybe somewhere in between) and their rather experimental and complex songs (still strongly embedded in death metal). During their last full length PHELEBOTOMIZED evolved into 'Avant-garde Death/Doom Metal'. This release 'Devoted to God, Preach Eternal Gospels' contains their second demo' Devoted to God' (1991) and their mini album 'Preach Eternal Gospels'. Both were recorded at Het Pand (Lair of Golgotha, Threnody) and carefully remastered from the original tapes by PHLEBOTOMIZED guitar player Tom Palms. As a bonus the album contains 3 live tracks.
This amazing release will be presented as 2 audiophile LPs, (200 black) housed in a 350 gram triple gatefold jacket with original artwork by Kristian Wahlin, lyrics, new liner not's from all band members and tons of classic flyers and band phot's from back in the day. Also included will be a huge 24" x 36" poster of the original flyer artwork.
