Mutilation Rites - I Am Legion 12" w/b-side etching
RE-PRESS AVAILABLE NOW. 300 COPIES ON OPAQUE GREY VINYL. I was first turned on to Mutilation Rites by my friend Scott. His band played with them in Minneapolis on a tour earlier in 2011 and he had nothing but great things to say. I noticed the band had been on tour frequently and another friend from Milwaukee was going to be releasing one of their demos on CS. I finally got around to checking out the band when I got a stack of the self-titled cassette form Poison Infiltration and was greatly impressed. I Am Legion contains three original demo songs re-worked and re-recorded with their current lineup, the same lineup that recorded Empyrean for Prosthetic Records. Another very expensive project, of course. All artwork by Reuben Sawyer from Rainbath Visual, including the b-side of the record which was a pressed etching. Jacket printed on heavyweight stock, metallic ink, high gloss finish. Looks very striking. Add to that the black inner sleeves and black insert printed w/metallic silver ink. All around one of my favorite packages. Everything meshed together so well and looked very visually striking. All test pressings went towards the band's inventory for their tour. 50 copies were test pressed, inserted into the standard jackets and sold at shows. Those copies all have white labels, standard pressing has black.
