Relapse Records is proud to announce the vinyl repressing of two classic albums from the original hardcore thrash merchants CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER! A seminal act in the 80’s crossover movement, CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER effortlessly fused politically charged, punk aggression with lightning-fast thrash metal.
Now available on remastered vinyl for the first time ever and on any vinyl format for the first time in over 10 years, the reissues will see an official release on February 14 in GAS, Benelux and Finland, on February 17 in the UK and Europe and on february 18 in the US and are available for pre-order here. A trailer for the reissues can be viewed here.
Their 1986 debut, Convicted, will be repressed on limited edition blood red vinyl (limited to 500 copies) along with standard gram black vinyl while 1987’s Money Talks will be reborn on green vinyl (500 copies) and standard gram black wax.
Additionally, both reissues will include digital downloads of the complete remastered albums plus all of the available bonus tracks from the CD reissues. Both records are available for streaming at Bandcamp here.
