NECROPSY - Finnish death metal legend to release demo compilation
 NECROPSY - Finnish death metal legend to release demo compilation
Again Century Media has dug deep into the rotten soil of the ancient death metal grounds and now is proud to announce the successful exhumation of entire demo recordings of Finland's notorious death metal masters NECROPSY. Emerging from the small yet fantastic Finnish death metal scene of the late 80s / early 90s, NECROPSY dwell amongst the few but legendary bands of that time such as SENTENCED, AMORPHIS, CONVULSE, XYSMA, DISGRACE, DEMIGOD, DEMILICH, ADRAMELECH, ABHORRENCE or PURTENANCE. Never having reached a wider audience during the band's existence from 1987 to 1993 (until its resurrection in 2008) NECROPSY nevertheless managed to release a bunch of demos containing outstandingly great real Finnish death metal, that just deserve to be discovered by more people than those lucky guys owning the original tapes. "Tomb Of The Forgotten - The Complete Demo Recordings" (to be released on June 3rd, 2013) includes the band's complete demo recordings, from the first demo "Mental Disturbance" from 1989 until the last recorded tune "Anointing Of The Sick" (1993). The entire material has been carefully remastered at DMS Mastering Studio (MORBID, ASPHYX, GRAVE etc.) from the original tapes. The result is mindblowing: Without ever destroying the analog charm of the old tapes, all songs sound fresh, just like they have been recorded just a few years ago. The cover has been done by César Valladares (ASPHYX, KRISIUN etc.) and perfectly captures the spirit of the ancient death metal demo days. Timo Hanhirova of MIASMA MAG (FI) has done a detailed interview with NECROPSY's main man Janne Kosonen and former guitarist Aatu Holma telling the entire story of the band. And of course the release is stuffed with loads of old and never-seen-before photos, demo art, flyers etc.

"Tomb Of The Forgotten - The Complete Demo Recordings" is going to be released as a 3CD Jewelcase with o-card and extensive booklet as well as on limited 4LP and as digital download.
