Sepultura- "Morbid Visions/Bestial Devestation" LP (Roadracer)
"The Roadrunner Albums: 1985-1996" Box Set Pressing, 2017
Red with Black Splatter Vinyl /??
With the rights granted by Roadrunner, Rhino Records has recently released this Sepultura box set, reissuing all of the Max Cavalera era LP's. It certainly comes in handy, as most of them existed on my want list. As far as I can tell, Rhino have created a spread that remains pretty true to the originals, just presented with various new colourways, compiled in this slip case. Unfortunately the slip case arrived a little dinged up, but all the records seemed to escape unharmed. Instead of posting about all six records today, I will keep the posting to one per day. "Morbid Visions" below...
I guess strictly speaking this reissue of MV isn't totally true to the very first pressing. The band debuted in '85 with their split 12" with Overdose, their portion of that record entitled "Bestial Devastation". That was released by Cogumelo Records. The following year MV was unleashed via that same label. It wasn't until 1992 that the two releases were combined on one piece of wax via Roadracer (runner). To add to confusion, BD was also released as it's own stand alone 12" EP somewhere in 1990. So technically speaking, this is a reissue of "Morbid Visions/Bestial Devastation", not their 1986 debut LP. It's a very tidy package though, with a quality slab. Bang your head to Troops Of Doom.
