ScumGarden Of Shadows
After a round of nearly three years (!) of discussions, the band was finally encouraged to send the original master of the album to Blood Music. Forget the nostalgia trip of currently reforming 90s death metal bands or youngsters trying to emulate 'the old days.' It was shocking to hear this excellent and undiscovered record that had been sitting dormant so long!
This is THE REAL DEAL – a first time publication of a classic death metal album that has never been heard before, stuffed in a drawer for several decades to incubate. Think an authentic companion piece to Amorphis's “Tales From the Thousand Lakes” mixed with doses of death n' roll and a little bit of high-powered marijuana, and you're on the right track. The album release includes the original artwork designed by the band in 1996, as well as original photos from the era, used to authentically recreate the entire package as it was envisioned for release in the mid 90s. Since the album was completed in 1996 and slated for release then, we made the collective decision to debut it now. “Garden of Shadows” will be released in the end of 2016, on its 20th anniversary of never being heard.
