MetalInjection.net has premiered the video for “Scorn Aesthetics” from French death metal unit AD PATRES. The video comes just weeks ahead of the vinyl and cassette editions of the band’s debut full-length, Scorn Aesthetics. Check it out now at this location.
Originally released in 2012, Kaotoxin Records will re-issue Scorn Aesthetics on vinyl and cassette on July 8. The vinyl edition is limited to 500 hand-numbered copies, with 100 copies in red vinyl. The cassette is strictly limited to 100 copies. Both editions will be exclusively available from the band and the Kaotoxin Web Shop. Preorder-exclusive bundles are being offered for both formats.
This reissue will feature a bonus track -“To the Fathers” – taken from the band’s 2010 promo that has been specially remastered at Ubik Studios for this physical support. The track features both Axel Doussaud (the band’s current only singer) and Julien Lemasson (ex-I.O.S.T., former Ad Patres singer and founding member) on vocals and, being remastered, is consequently a different version from the one appearing on the band’s promo CD-R and split tape with USA’s Writhing as released back in 2012 (Nihilistic Holocaust).
Scorn Aesthetics, recorded by Mathieu Pascal of Gorod at the Bud studio and released on September 2012, put AD PATRES on the worldwide map of the best Death Metal newcomers with rave reviews from everywhere and several nominations as part of end of year’s top lists (2012 Album of the year at Nihil Verum Nisi Mors, 8th best 2012 album at CoreAndCo, 2012 revelation at Thrashocore, 6th best French Metal album of 2012 at Metal Sickness, among the staff’s 2012 picks at VS Webzine, 9/10 by Pest Webzine, The RingMaster Review, The Whiplasher, etc.).
