SAMEL to Release 25th Anniversary Vinyl of ‘Blood Ritual| The Noise Cartel


Century Media Records and SAMAEL invite you to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Swiss metal masters’ 1992 opus “Blood Ritual”, which will be released on vinyl on 01 December.
It features the LP’s original cover artwork re-created from a brand-new scan of the original painting by Axel Hermann (Asphyx, Grave, Unleashed) and reveals its more blueish character, which was lost on the first pressing. The artwork looks exactly the same, twenty-five years after being painted.
“Blood Ritual” has been mastered for vinyl and CD by Patrick W. Engel / Temple Of Disharmony (Tiamat, Iced Earth, Moonspell). The vinyl comes in a Gatefold sleeve and includes a 60x60cm sized cover art poster as additional extra.
