To commemorate the 20th anniversary of AVULSED‘s debut EP “Carnivoracity”, Xtreem Music will re-issue this already legendary recording both on CD and 12″LP as well as limited run of T-shirts.
Originally recorded in december 1993, the three studio songs (17 min.) were first released as a 7″EP in June 1994 by german label M.M.I. Records, making of this, the very first release of a Spanish extreme Metal band by a foreign label and quickly becoming a collectable item. One year later, in 1995, this EP was re-issued on CD format by Repulse Records including 9 live bonus tracks from a memorable show of the band containing rare tracks, demo songs and a couple of covers of DEMIGOD & BRUJERIA.
This “Carnivoracity” release has become some sort of a cult recording through the years showing the early days of AVULSED, that has kept this pure and genuine brand of Death Metal until today, an spirit and essence that makes this band one of the most authentic and respected european Death Metal forces, always keeping themselves away from commercial records labels.
The CD version contains the same original songs (more than 50 min.) with enhanced sound, specially making the live tracks much better sounding and with a revamped design including liner notes. Same goes for the vinyl 12″LP version, which is being pressed on a limited edition of 400 copies in black wax and 100 copies in red wax with black splatter, only available through the Xtreem Music mailorder.
