V/A “Tribute to ABSURD” LP /INFERNUS ZINE – The Ultimate Blasphemy HARDCOVER BOOK
Spearheaded by mighty JFN, the tyrant of German black metal is back again! So, there is no better timing to announce this massive release that has been in the work since 2014: The official vinyl release of Tribute album to ABSURD, the undisputable TYRANTS OF GERMAN BLACK METAL!
In the J-CARD of original cassette version release back in 1999, it reads “Originally the tribute was planned in a drunken night to be the tribute of a small circle of individuals bonded by true friendship. The later planned extended and more professional version seems to fail through polish passivity. Maybe it will appear later. At least here finally is a version to satisfy the demand for a tribute to The Ones…..”
So here you have, a long overdue, and truly professional vinyl release of this legendary tribute album. Organized and released by German label Silencelike Death Productions, owned/operated by Richard Neu (Siren, Lestat, Wolfsburg, Nidhöggsburg), it is the only tribute to Absurd that supported AND participated by the band themselves, it feature some of the most notorious names from era 90’s hateful black metal underground.
