I haven’t been able to really appreciate American black metal group Abigail Williams until they released their latest opus Becoming earlier this year. I’m a vinyl collector myself, and while I don’t always enjoy black metal, I make an effort to buy the black metal records I enjoy on vinyl. I was pretty bummed that Becoming wasn’t initially released on vinyl, but now I’ll be able to throw my money at my computer screen.

Indie label Blood Music will be issuing a very limited run of vinyl pressings for not only Becoming (pictured above), but for their debut record Legend. Here’s the information:

These deluxe, limited editions were remastered for vinyl by frontman Ken Sorceron from the original 24-bit mixes and include EIGHT bonus tracks in total.  They will be limited to:

Color 180-gram: 75 copies USA/75 copies Rest of World
Black 180-gram: 75 copies USA/75 copies Rest of World

Pre-orders go live on May 22nd at 8PM Finnish time (1PM EST). The vinyl will be released on June 22nd.

A 100 copy run of the records will be available on standard weight black vinyl in Europe shortly afterwards.

So you can bet I’m gonna be buying that gorgeous red/black splatter vinyl above. You can check it out at Blood Music.
