MZ.412 - Classic Debut Album To Be Re-Released On Vinyl For The First Time

The classic cult album, In Nomine Dei Nostri Satanas Luciferi Excelsi, of Swedish collective Mz.412, will be on 11th January 2019 released for the first time on vinyl by Annapurna. Originally the album was released in 1995 by the pivotal Cold Meat Industry, but only on CD format.
While many hail the follow-up Burning The Temple Of God as Mz.412's greatest and most influential work, it was In Nomine Dei Nostri Satanas Luciferi Excelsi where this Swedish band shifted their aesthetic toward what would eventually shape the "black industrial" subgenre. Here, mulching tones of mangled guitar and electronics course through terrifyingly tribal, ritualistic rhythms, creating an atmosphere of mechanistic, dystopian collapse. Within, dislocated and desiccated voices of "humanity" are sonically slaughtered and serve as eerie counterpoint to the ever-tense pulse the album drives deeper into the helpless listener, holding him/her in thrall.
Setting the course for the rest of Mz.412's justifiably legendary work, In Nomine Dei Nostri Satanas Luciferi Excelsi was starkly and strikingly unique upon its initial release. Like the very bowels of Hell bursting upward - slowly, menacingly - through the long-unused smokestacks of rotten, derelict factories, Mz.412's In Nomine Dei Nostri Satanas Luciferi Excelsi is an experience like no other, a world unto itself... and one that eventually consumes the listener. And now, AnnapurnA releases this monumental album on the format its frightening visions so deserve. Hail the end! You can pre-order the album at this location. Link
