Listenable records is proud to re-release Immolation's much praised album Unholy Cult that was originally released in 2002. The press release reads as follows:
"The album has been out of print for a while and we felt it was time to bring it back in its full glory. The new edition comes in a stellar digipack with a full detailed 12 page booklet with new live pictures and liner notes from the band themselves. On top of that, you get the 2003 Bringing Down The World full DVD as a bonus. A fully loaded package for a killer price. An extra special vinyl edition featuring a picture disk in regular vinyl cover is coming soon as well. Unholy Cult was a landmark in the
history of the band and this is the perfect opportunity to get it for those who missed out."
Why do that? Just release something new instead...
Althou it can be really good, so its better to just wait.
In addition to already releasing a new album soon, the original 2002 pressing is officially sold out, so adding the bonus DVD and other material gives collectors another opportunity to purchase the album while it helps the band in terms of advertising, as Majesty And Decay is set to be released in less than two weeks.
This is a calculated move on behalf of the band: one that will likely benefit them.
