Week 25: DEATH – GENERAL SURGERY
DEATH: Human Re-Issue Track Posted Online - KISS Cover Posted Online At RevolverMag.com
A re-mixed version of DEATH’s “Suicide Machine”, taken from the forthcoming re-issue of Human, has been posted online now via the official DEATH Facebook page along with a re-mixed version of “Lack of Comprehension”.
Additionally a re-mixed version of DEATH’s cover of the KISS track “God Of Thunder” has been posted online at RevolverMag.com. “God Of Thunder” originally appeared as the Japanese bonus track on the band’s 1991 release of Human.
DEATH’s legendary Human album has been entirely re-mixed by longtime DEATH producer Jim Morris and mastered by Alan Douches (MASTODON, CONVERGE, THE MISFITS). This special 20th anniversary edition of the album will come complete with expanded packaging featuring liner notes from Morris as well as former DEATH / current CYNIC guitarist Paul Masvidal and over an hour of newly unearthed, previously unreleased early demo tracks. Human will be available on 2- and 3- disc sets as well as digitally. CD orders are being accepted now at this location along with new DEATH merch designs, and the album is available digitally via iTunes.
These re-mixed versions are both taken from the up-coming deluxe re-issue of Human that will see its international release on June 27th, via Relapse Records
