 SINDROME - official demo collection to be released in March, pre-sale has started
"I wore out two copies of the "Into the Halls of Extermination" tape, that's how much it got played in my bedroom. Sindrome, alongside bands like Death, Massacre and Morbid Angel were certainly an influence on my early forays into the world of extreme metal."
Michael Amott (Arch Enemy, ex-Carcass, Spiritual Beggars)

Century Media is very proud to announce the cooperation with Chicago thrash/death metal legends SINDROME.

On the 4th of March, Century Media Records will release SINDROME's two only studio recordings - the highly influential "Into The Halls Of Extermination" (1987) and its congenial successor "Vault Of Inner Conscience" (1991). As both demos have been bootlegged numerous times, it's now time to offer all fans of timeless thrash/death metal these two legendary recordings as an official release, fully supported by the band and done in close cooperation with SINDROME's vocalist Troy Dixler.

"Resurrection - The Complete Collection" will be released as a noble 2CD Digipak with slipcase and 36-page booklet as well as an LP with a 16-page LP size booklet and bonus CD. The entire audio material has been carefully re-mastered from original sources to guarantee an optimal listening experience. Metalion (Slayer Mag) has written an introduction to the release and Laurent Ramadier (Snakepit Mag) has conducted an extensive interview with Troy Dixler giving you a deep insight into the band's history. The cover artwork and additional design was done by Gustavo Sazes (Morbid Angel, Arch Enemy and many more). As a special bonus, SINDROME have unearthed the lost track, "Brought To The End", from the recording session of "Into The Halls Of Extermination" - an awesome track that now finally can be offered to the fans.

Besides the two demos and the bonus track, "Resurrection - The Complete Collection" also includes a full bootleg live show from Chicago, 1988, when SINDROME supported Death on their "Scream Bloody Gore" tour. The show is unedited and has a pretty raw sound, but it captures the intensity of SINDROME's live shows very well. It also includes the tracks "Surround The Prisoner" and "Psychic Warfare", two songs from the very early days that were never properly recorded in the studio.

"Resurrection - The Complete Collection" offers over 88 minutes of relentlessly raging thrash/death metal and is a mandatory purchase for every fan of US thrash metal and especially for the worshippers of the glorious heydays of the Chicago metal scene that brought up bands like Devastation, Terminal Death, Death Strike, Zoetrope, Funeral Nation, Cyclone Temple, Znöwhite, Num Skull, Funeral Bitch or Master.

"This stuff still sounds kick ass! I was ready for it way back when, as I had already been into Devastation and Terminal Death. Sindrome did not disappoint and I'm glad it's finally getting the proper treatment all these years later. I have a soft spot in my rotten soul for the good ol' demo days, when everything hadn't already been done and Sindrome was definitely part of that movement. I am very much looking forward to cranking this release up loud!"
Chris Reifert (Autopsy, ex-Death)
