With the release of Demon Entrails on February 26th in the U.S. the days of numerous sub-standard bootlegs of the classic HELLHAMMER demos Death Fiend, Triumph of Death and Satanic Rites are finally over!
Demon Entrails has been specially re-mastered from copies of the original master tapes under the supervision of Tom Gabriel Fischer, and the demos now represent HELLHAMMER exactly as the band sounded when recording these songs in June and December of 1983. Drawing from a wealth of previously unknown historical liner-notes material and artwork as well as plenty of unreleased HELLHAMMER photos from 1982 to 1984, Demon Entrails features all lyrics and essays detailing the individual demo recording sessions.
Currently also working on a book dealing with the history of HELLHAMMER, Tom Gabriel Fischer points out the importance of this release: “The release of these demos is very significant to both Martin Eric Ain and me. No matter how one looks at HELLHAMMER, this was our first recorded music so many years ago, and it represents the radicalness of our own lives at the time. These demos became the foundation to everything we later created in CELTIC FROST. Hell reigned on earth.”
Demon Entrails will be available as an opulent oversized double CD media-book packaging and as a gatefold triple vinyl album. Both versions will feature a lavish booklet and a poster. There will also be a third, bare-bones lower-price CD version.
