2011 double vinyl in a luxurious reverse board printed triple gatefold jacket complete with original artwork from both releases. This killer set features an amazing old-school layout by the band’s own Ferry Damen with lyrics for both releases, new liner notes, classic unpublished band photos and Ferry’s own original illustrations from the 1993 cd booklet. Rather than cram 50 minutes of music on 1 LP resulting in inferior sound, reduced volume and low end, this release is mastered onto two separate 180 gram lps for the best audio fidelity possible. This monument of death metal wouldn’t be complete without a luxurious 24″ x 36″ (60.96 cm x 91.44 cm) poster featuring the classic early 90’s T-shirt design. Limited 500 copies

Its time to resurrect this obscure masterpiece of blistering old school Dutch death metal. Antropomorphia Necromantic Love Songs is a sledgehammer of brutal death metal that never gained the recognition it deserved. This is as old school as it gets and its short but has almost everything you could ever want from a death metal record. Crack the Casket starts off with a melodic and somber instrumental bit, before tossing in that heavy as fuck guitar tone with a grinding riff on repeat that almost puts you in a trance. That fucking riff.. you know from the first time you hear this first riff that Necromantic is going to be one solid piece of death metal, or you should know, or at least pretend to know so people like me dont mock you. The second song Carnal Pit starts off with a funky fresh bass solo to once again leave you anticipating the almighty dose of heavy riffs, which indeed are delivered. Did I mention how prominent the bass is for the entirety of the album? I did now. Yes. Bass. Yes. It sounds so good I want to eat it. Thats how awesome the bass is. Birth Through Dead offers a section of doom metal as well as a solo plus more cool old school riffs. Chunks of Meat kicks off with one of the most crushing breakdowns ever and keeps going with another dose of melody and badass bass-age. Rotted Flesh starts with a killer riff reminiscent of Bolt Thrower and is generally slower and more emotional than the other tracks, ending with a catchy riff that will probably be stuck in your head the next day. And in case you havent noticed, Antropomorphia has a knack for making the coolest song titles ever. The outro is another melodic instrumental bit that ends on the perfect note, but after the righteousness of the first five songs they couldve ended this with a fart and it would still be awesome (or more awesome actually). This has gotta be the most perfect and awesome old school as fuck death metal ep ever. On this lovely done vinyl we can also find the rare Bowel Mutilation demo material.
