WOE: LP Version Of 'A Spell For The Death Of Man'

10:20 AM / Posted by metallic sucker and moslem militan /

Philadelphia-based black metal band WOE has announced the official release of the long-awaited LP edition of its debut full-length, "A Spell for the Death of Man". A mid-July release is planned as a collaborative effort between Creeping Vine Productions and WOE frontman Chris Grigg's own label, Subvert All Media.

Originally released on CD by American label Stronghold Records in 2008, "A Spell for the Death of Man" received universally positive reviews, and was hailed as one of the "most important black metal releases in years" by a number of publications.

Although "A Spell for the Death of Man" was written and recorded as a solo project, WOE has since expanded into a full band (featuring members of WOODS OF YPRES, RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER, XXX MANIAK, THE GREEN EVENING REQUIEM, and INFERNAL STRONGHOLD), one whose intense live performances have wowed audiences up and down the East Coast and gained legions of new fans with each performance.

With an initial pressing of 500 copies on red wax, the album features entirely new cover art courtesy of artist Justin Miller, whose artwork for the CD version has been described as "the final song" by Grigg, as well as a printed inner sleeve. The music comes straight off of a brand-new master taken from the original HD recording. Commented Grigg, "This is the album I recorded, the album I wanted to hear. This is WOE as it was intended."

WOE's "A Spell for the Death of Man" LP can be pre-ordered directly from www.woeunholy.com and www.creepingvine.org now. Additionally, a pay-what-you-want, DRM-free, high-res digital version of the CD master (with artwork) is available through www.woeunholy.com.

A full stream of the album, live dates, pictures, and live videos can be found at www.myspace.com/woeunholy.
