“Sarcofagus Live in Studio 1979″ Brand New Black & Clear Vinyl LP Release

This is the first ever official vinyl release of this forgotten “Sarcofagus Live in Studio 1979″ tape by the grandfathers of Finnish Heavy Metal. This tape was made in Pan Studio, Helsinki Finland, during a single recording session in May 1979 and buried in time soon after. Lately the tape was rediscovered and is now available on limited high quality vinyl, as it should be! The Vinyl is newly mastered respecting the original tape master.

These early tracks are a brilliant document of the birth of Sarcofagus – the music has its roots in blues and progressive rock, as the band was still searching for its distinctive heavy metal style. Finnish national radio played some of these songs, which then led to a record deal and the rest is heavy metal history.

Technical Info:
The Black Limited Edition 180 gram version, only few copies available! 350 gram heavy rough gatefold covers plus a large 16 pp booklet with liner notes and unseen photographs.
The Clear Limited Edition beautifully remastered on 140 gram clear vinyl! 350 gram heavy rough gatefold covers plus a large 16 pp booklet with liner notes and unseen photographs!

This  Luxury Vinyl release was made by SVART Records in Finland, 2010.
