WINDS OF CREATION and ORGANIC HALLUCINOSIS, two landmark albums from Polish death metal legends DECAPITATED, are out now in Europe on vinyl LP for the first time ever.
DECAPITATED’s debut album, WINDS OF CREATION was released in 2000 and was immediately hailed as an album responsible for re-igniting a stagnating death metal scene.
ORGANIC HALLUCINOSIS was released in 2006 and was DECAPITATED’s first release with new vocalist COVAN. A hugely forward-thinking and ambitious album, ORGANIC HALLUCINOSIS defined DECAPITATED’s sound and spawned a host of imitators.
Available now on limited edition coloured vinyl, WINDS OF CREATION and ORGANIC HALLUCINOSIS each come housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with a double-sided poster booklet. The albums are the latest releases in the ‘First Time on Vinyl’ campaign, plugging the gaps in the Earache catalogue previously unavailable on wax.
These strictly limited edition vinyls are available in the following colours and quantities:
WINDS OF CREATION
100 – Fire & Brimstone
200 – Tooth White
300 – Burning Red
900 – Black
100 – Crumbling Rust
200 – Stainless Grey
