Sarcofago Re-Issuing "Rotting" Album On Vinyl

Greyhaze Records has set a release date of May 27th, 2014 for the vinyl reissue of Sarcofago's second album, "Rotting."

Originally released in 1989 via Cogumelo Records, Rotting's devastating output made waves throughout the metal underground upon its original release, and the band was also covered in our Sunday Old School column.

The 2014 "Rotting" release has been carefully remastered to ensure optimal sound output, bringing out all details of this savage and classic recording. The vinyl will be housed in a deluxe gatefold jacket, which will feature all the original artwork, including a full-color gatefold insert.

Sarcofago's drummer Manu commented: "Rotting is one hell of an album. Even though I recognize the importance of INRI, Rotting is still my favorite Sarcófago album. It's better built than the previous album, but it still maintains that elemental rawness. The Rotting era was a great time. Wagner did an outstanding job. We were an interesting trio, and when (Fabio) Jhasko joined the band, our firepower became even greater! Excellent memories!"

The one thing that stopped me from getting into Sarcòfago was the recording quality, I'm excited to give this another listen.

Nice. Although I'd love it, I won't hold out much hope of this sparking a reunion.
