There is probably some nostalgia now looking back at Finnish metallers Demilich, who disbanded back in 2006 and released their first and last full-length album Nespithe in 1993. Now Svart Records is releasing a compilation of their recordings. The set comes with cover art by Turkka G. Rantanen, and a fold-out A2/B2 size poster with art by David Mikkelsen. The box set comes in 2CD and 3LP forms and is called The 20th Anniversary Of Emptiness, available through Svart Records on January 17th, 2014.

You can pre-order the box set here.

The 20th Anniversary Of Emptiness contains everything Demilich have ever recorded, starting from Regurgitation Of Blood demo (1991) and rounding things off with three songs the band recorded during their brief comeback in 2006. The only Demilich album Nespithe has been reissued several times over the years in various guises, but always using the inferior 16-bit CD masters. For this release, they dug up the original unmastered 24 bit studio tapes for Nespithe and best possible sources for the demo material, and then had Sami Jämsén of Studio Perkele thoroughly clean everything up and create new masters.

The Nespithe LP is wrapped in the original Turkka Rantanen cover art, restored, and a new artwork by Mr. Rantanen adorns the box itself. For the demo compilation cover, the band commissioned new art from renowned underground artists David Mikkelsen and Johnny Maddox, inspired by Demilich lyrics. Mikkelsen's art also comes as a poster in the package. The 44 page Demilich 'zine features a long Q&A session between Olivier 'Zoltar' Badin and Antti Boman plus lyrics, song commentary and a plethora of assorted interviews and reviews spanning two decades.
