Century Media Records
Death/Black Metal

                When it comes to blending death and black metal together, Sweden has always been out there on the horizon. Necrophobic have spent the last 30 years delivering thundering death/black metal to utterly high standards and this year has Century Media Records digging into the past and reissuing the bands 1997 album ‘Darkside’ on both CD and vinyl formats.

                What the purchaser gets here firstly is the wonderful ‘Darkside’ getting a good old spring clean as this reissue is sonically brought into the modern era with a nice remaster. This is CD will arrive in a jewel case within a slipcase, but it will not come with any extras or bonus tracks. However, where this reissue excels is the limited-edition vinyl. ‘Darkside’ will come in a single sleeve coupled with an A2 poster to whack up on your bedroom, living room, bathroom wall that will be available as a black vinyl as well as a transparent red vinyl. Furthermore, exclusively to Century Media Records themselves will be a blue vinyl whereas from Nuclear Blast and EMP will be silver vinyl.

                There may be nothing new added here, but ‘Darkside’ Century Media and Necrophobic have reissued a top album of black/death metal and any fan of Necrophobic who still doesn’t have this in their collection will have the opportunity to add it now.
