Massacra:  "Final Holocaust", "Enjoy The Violence" und "Signs Of The Decline" Re-Releases erscheinen am 30. Mai 2014!
Am 30. Mai 2014 erscheinen via Century Media Records die ersten drei Alben der legendären, französischen Death/Thrasher MASSACRA als CD, LP und Digital Download. Diese Versionen entstanden in Kooperation mit Gitarrist Jean-Marc Tristani und sind die einzigen offiziellen Varianten dieser essentiellen Alben:

"MASSACRA are proud to present you the official reissues of the first three albums "Final Holocaust" (1990), "Enjoy The Violence" (1991) and "Signs Of The Decline" (1992). Century Media worked hard to add extra value to these releases. The packaging is really nice and you can find lots of extra stuff in there: detailed interviews, tons of rare photos etc! We also wanted to make as much as possible visible of Formosa's excellent artworks, so we scanned the original LPs and came up with designs that fit to the spirit of last year's "Day Of The Massacra" demo compilation. On the CDs you will find some pretty interesting bonus material like an unreleased live show from 1990 from my personal archive, some bootleg tracks plus a rehearsal recording that was previously published with very bad sound and disguised as live tracks with no track-listing. That rehearsal also includes a song ("Cyclone") that has never been re-recorded afterwards. A lot of the material we used was provided by real diehard collectors out there, so a special thanks to them for supporting this project!

As you can see we picked the French national colours for the vinyl. Consider it as an ironic statement, we know where we come from but MASSACRA definitely was not the band to make peace with anyone. Overall these are the definite editions of such albums that hopefully put an end to all the bootlegs and satisfy all the MASSACRA maniacs out there! Enjoy the violence!"

// Jean-Marc Tristani, April 2014
