CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER: Classic Albums To Be Reissued On Vinyl

Relapse Records has announced the vinyl repressing of two classic albums from the original hardcore thrash merchants CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER.

A seminal act in the '80s crossover movement, CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER effortlessly fused politically charged, punk aggression with lightning-fast thrash metal. Now available on remastered vinyl for the first time ever and on any vinyl format for the first time in over 10 years, the reissues will see an official release on February 18 and are available for pre-order here. A trailer for the reissues can be viewed below.

CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER's 1986 debut, "Convicted", will be repressed on limited edition blood-red vinyl (limited to 500 copies) along with standard gram black vinyl while 1987's "Money Talks" will be reborn on green vinyl (500 copies) and standard gram black wax.

Additionally, both reissues will include digital downloads of the complete remastered albums plus all of the available bonus tracks from the CD reissues.

Born in the summer of 1984 and fused in crossover music that bears its dominance through a collection of punk and prescient metal riffs, CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER (along with D.R.I., CORROSION OF CONFORMITY and the contributions of punkers like DISCHARGE and THE EXPLOITED) built up the genre of thrash music from haphazard crossover to a science of more terrifying, instantaneous music.
