limited black disc
http://shop.season-of-mist.com/gorguts-obscura-cd
limited to 100 copies worldwide
http://shop.season-of-mist.com/gorguts-obscura-double-lp-gatefold

One of the most endearing metal albums ever just got reissued for the first time ever :thumbsup:
From Wisdom To Hate got the treatment too, this has been reissued and repressed though so not quite as big a deal but still cool

limited to 100 copies though what's that about?! :scratch:

edit: Sorry, reissued on CD for the first time, the vinyl was reissued in 2012

I may just have to buy this. I only own a promo copy of Obscura that came in a cardboard sleeve. We'll see what happens. I'd like to see Erosion of Sanity get reissued, I still don't have a proper copy of that.

Nice for everyone that hasn't gotten it or had it downloaded. I found out about this not too long ago when I was talking to a guy on facebook who was looking for a copy. he actually knew about the reissue.

Had the original since it came out and got the first reissue vinyl. But I'll go on and buy a copy of each of this as well. That's how much I love this album.

What do you guys think about this RIDICULOUS 100 piece limit ?
And unless I read it wrong there is only the blue vinyl, no black or other colours.

Ok I just answered my own question :roll:
I had a feeling another label was doing the other colours

It was reissued in 2006, but I assume there's interest in their previous work with the success of Colored Sands. I'm so glad I picked it up.

As for the Obscura reissue, about fucking time. I will have it at a reasonable price, and I'll finally have all their full lengths. It's a happy day!

The shipping prices are pretty cool too, I see they have added a reasonably cheap international option.

Damn it, I don't have the money at the moment to put in an order.

This and those three Razor reissues are gonna drain my bank account dry.

The 2006 reissue of Erosion of Sanity sounded like crap, overcompressed just like every other Metal Mind reissue. That label fucking sucks, ruining old releases and bootlegging material they don't even own the rights to.

Apparently that Roadrunner "2 from the Vault" disc with the first 2 albums sounds better.But then again I've got all original pressings of the first 4 Gorguts CDs anyway so not my problem :oh shit:

I'm sure that Two From The Vault isn't remastered or anything, both albums on one disc too from memory.

Yeah it's one disc. I've never heard it but my mate reckons it sounds better than the original and he's not one to be fooled by brickwalling. A lot of those older Roadrunner albums do have shitty mastering on CD, they sound far better on vinyl. That goes for pretty much any death metal from late 80s/early 90s though. CD mastering didn't really start being done well until 1992. Deicide's s/t original version sounds especially bad, all squashed and muddy like it's playing on an FM radio station.

Metal Mind may be notorious for putting out really bad sounding reissues, but the sad thing is that their reissues are sometimes the most easily available way to get some old classics without paying out the ass for an original copy (emphasis on "sometimes", because I've seen some Metal Mind albums sell for far too much as well).

My trick is just to not look for anything specific. There's certain CDs i've taken literally decades to find an optimum physical copy of, but i've got there in the end. Patience is the way of the ninja.

Aw, it's sold out already. I have the original version, but it's starting to show it's wear from multiple listens. Would have been nice to get this reissue so I could shelve it.

Sold out already? Ehh it's ok, I have thr originals so I wasn't too concerned. Would've been nice to have but no big deal really.

Oh yeah, I also have to Two From the Vault EoS and Considered Dead. The sound is surprisingly good on it. Obviously I don't know what EoS sounds like on the original or that other reissue but it sounds fine on this.

Not to fear; it's up at CMDistro.

edit:

Before I noticed CM had them, I emailed Season of Mist to see if they would be getting any more for their US site. Just now I got a response saying no. So don't do what I'd originally intended and assume some copies had been set aside for the SOM US distro.

CM Distro has the green LP, the lilac LP, and the CD. Not sure what's going on with From Wisdom to Hate -- am I having reading comprehension problems or is there really no way to order the CD reissue by itself? The previous iteration of the reissue is still available at SOM so ... I dunno. I have to wonder if that means the new CD reissue is in fact the last reissue. Whatever.

And for comedy purposes, the response from SOM, to who I'd sent an inquiry wondering if any more copies of Obscura would be going on sale on their US site because they'd sold out on the international site, said, "We won't have those here in the USA as Season of Mist isn't releasing it and we try to avoid distributing other labels on the US store but the International shop does ship to the USA so feel free to order it from there."

Yes I'll just order it from there. You know, from the place where it's out of stock. Which is why I contacted you in the first place.

Not to fear, it's still in pre-order phase. ;)

This has a release date for next month and it's being released on Century Media, so chill guys. It's not like CM will let this sell out or anything. :lol:

The Metal Mind EoS is brickwalled to the fuckhouse.

Apparently all those "From the Vault" discs were remastered. I've heard good things about Effigy of the Forgotten, another one that suffers from muddy mastering on the original.

I've got just about all of those 2 From the Vault deals and they do vary. The problem is that there's never any notification of which version was used. Pestilence and Suffocation's sound good. Gorguts too. Some King Diamond sounds good, or at least better than the original (Them), while others, like Abigail, are kind of all over the place -- even on the same album: "Arrival" sounds more jacked up than "Possession," for instance. Really weird. I think that for Abigail, the less bad 1997 remaster was used, not the universally loathed 2005 CD/DVD.

Anyway, I just noticed Amazon has Obscura for pre-order.

I can confirm that the Suffocation (Effigy/Pierced), Obituary (Slowly We Rot/Cause of Death), and Annihilator (Alice/Never, Neverland) Two from the Vault issues all sound great. It's a shame the Gorguts one had to get the 2 albums on 1 CD treatment (there's a few other ones that are like that too), because I really wanted to buy that one.

I don't really think it's ridiculous esp since there are other versions being pressed.


Glad I snagged it up when I did regardless of having it. But yea mainly got the reissue of the cd so I didn't have to take my original out as often. Though I had already burned a cdr of it to leave in my trucks for that purpose as well.

This means the second hand price for Obscura might drop?

Doubtful, the reissue will probably be cheaper on both markets. First presses never go out of demand, even back when firstpress mania wasn't nearly as common I remember traders constantly on the lookout for originals of pretty much everything on WAR Records even though nearly all of it had been reissued by various labels.
