A Descent Into Hell + demos Triple LP from The Crypt.



The Crypt is proud to announce the second album from Chicago Death Metal kings CIANIDE! For the first time ever on vinyl we present the band's sophomore masterpiece "A Descent into Hell" coupled with their "CIANIDE... KILLS" demo and “Scourging At the Pillar” unreleased track..

Formed in 1988, CIANIDE's vision was to create the heaviest Death Metal in existence... and they DID! Truly CRUSHING and DEATH HEAVY, the way it was meant to be, finally seeing the light of day once again, on glorious vinyl format!!!

Strictly limited to a one-time only pressing of 666 hand-numbered copies, 222 sets will be on 180 gram classic black vinyl.

Clocking in at almost 80 minutes, the length per LP side ended up being way too long to fit a standard double LP set. For optimal sound quality, this massive Death Metal Beast is mastered at 45 RPM across 3 slabs of wax. They come housed in a 350 gram, reverse-board printed, triple gatefold jacket featuring the original CD cover art, "Hell" by The Limbourg Brothers, lyrics, unpublished band photos and new extensive liner notes by all 3 original members.

Included in all 666 copies is a luxurious 24" x 36" (60.96 cm x 91.44 cm) poster of the original Limbourg Brothers "Hell" cover artwork.

I can already feel the ground starting to shake...
