Prosthetic Records have announced plans to re-release French groove metal mainstays Gojira‘s From Mars To Sirius and The Way Of All Flesh on limited 12″ vinyl this August. After fielding many requests from fans over the years, the label has listened and offered 1000 copies of each record, which are now available for pre-order (for North American customers only) for $25.

Here are the specifications for each release:

From Mars To Sirius:

You’ve asked (and asked, and asked), so by popular demand, here it is — the first-ever domestic pressing of GOJIRA’s landmark “From Mars To Sirius.” This gatefold, 180-gram 2LP set is limited to 1000 copies and available to North American customers only. Expected to ship in mid-August.

Exact numbers will vary slightly, but here are the options (all 180-gram):
* “Eco-Green” (600 copies)
* “Mars Red” (200 copies)
* “Sea Blue” (200 copies)

Thanks for all the requests over the years.

The Way of All Flesh:

You wanted it, you got it — “The Way Of All Flesh” available on vinyl once again.

The second pressing — we sold out of the original three years ago — features a gatefold jacket and gatefold insert just like before, but comes in two new variants:

*180-gram clear (approx. 500 copies)
* Blue/white split (standard weight; also approx. 500 copies)

If I weren’t so broke I’d definitely get involved, as I’m an avid vinyl collector myself. From Mars To Sirius was one of my first enjoyable brushes with death metal, so it’s good to see the album getting its first domestic release on vinyl.

You can pick up the records at Prosthetic’s pre-order page. Expect the records to ship mid-to-late August.
