NEWS: Greyhaze Records to Reissue SARCOFAGO's 'Die Hard' on Vinyl LP in October

Here is some news for the Sarcófago can't-get-enoughers!
OFIFICAL: Greyhaze Records has announced the October 7 reissue of SARCOFAGO's Die Hard on vinyl LP format. Beautifully packaged as a double-LP with Gatefold Jacket, the album will be available on black and limited-edition yellow vinyl, including an over-sized booklet and poster, as well as liner notes by SARCOFAGO front man Wagner Antichrist.
Die Hard is the only official, comprehensive collection of SARCOFAGO's demos. It includes material that had never before been made available, such as the band's very first demo recording, as well as material recorded for Rotting and The Laws of Scourge. SARCOFAGO's i nfluence and legacy in the realm of Extreme Metal cannot be overstated. Classics like INRI, Rotting, and The Laws of Scourge have paved the way for a large number of bands spanning various genres such as Black and Death Metal. The band's demos have been shamelessly bootlegged for decades and demand for an official demos collection has been constant.
Greyhaze Records has also partnered with artist Zbigniew Bielak (GHOST, WATAIN, etc.) to create the artwork for a very limited slipcase version of the vinyl reissue. Bielak had this to say about the project:
"It is always a thrill to work for a band that has shaped one's taste in music. Despite disbanding many years ago, still Sarcofago are the treasured ore to some of the most volatile fuel for the extreme metal scene. To me INRI may very well be the sole desert island album pick, when it comes to metal in general. Demos leading up to it's tainted conception, are among my favourite underground recordings, and its a great honor to be entrusted to contribute artwork for their long overdue official release."
