ABSU's "Barathrum: V.I.T.R.I.O.L" will be re-released on triple vinyl via The Crypt during the latter part of summer.
"Barathrum: V.I.T.R.I.O.L" was ABSU's first full-length album in 1993 for Gothic Records, which later secured the band a deal with its longtime label home Osmose Productions (before signing with Candlelight Records). This LP was the naissance of their blended style called "mythological occult metal."
The album's title is a Latin-based analogical acronym meaning Barathrum: Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultum Lapidem, which is translated as "The Abyss: We shall visit the interior parts of earth, by rectification; thou shall find the hidden stone."
The vinyl edition is limited to only 500 numbered copies (300: marbled black/red & 200: black) and comes on triple 180-gram vinyl. It will be packaged in a deluxe heavyweight gatefold sleeve featuring additional artwork by Polish artist Zbigniew Bielak (WATAIN, DESTROYER 666). The vinyl edition also features a 16-page booklet with never-before-seen photos and exclusive liner notes penned by drummer/vocalist Proscriptor, a timeline and a two-sided 24" x 36" poster.
