Reactivated Swedish death metallers DESULTORY are set to release their long-anticipated new album, Counting Our Scars, through Pulverised Records later this month. The full-length — their first since 1996’s Swallow The Snake — was recorded, mixed and mastered by Tore Stjerna at Necromorbus Studio (Watain, Unanimated, Deströyer 666 etc.) in Alvik, Sweden and features the meticulous cover art and concept  by legendary graphic designer Travis Smith (Nevermore, Opeth, Amorphis, King Diamond, etc.). In addition, the record will be available with an alternate slipcase cover  to truly showcase Smith’s elaborate concept.

Commented DESULTORY vocalist/guitarist Klas Morberg: “It’s been more than a year now since we entered the studio to record the first DESULTORY album in over a decade. This album will write a new chapter in the history of the band and it has been with great anticipation and endurance that we’ve waited for the cover art to take form. We wanted the whole package, from music and lyrics to the visual appearance, to communicate the same feeling, and as it turned out, this work had to take time. Now, at the very last hours of this long year, we are finally ready to reveal it all to you. We hope you think it was worth the wait; we do.”

Peep both cover versions below and HERE.

DESULTORY To Reissue Into Eternity + Bitterness Full Lengths With Bonus Tracks

October 26th, 2010

Reunited Swedish death metallers DESULTORY will reissue exclusive deluxe editions of their Into Eternity and Bitterness full lengths via Singapore’s Pulverised Records. Initially released via Metal Blade Records in 1993 and 1994 respectively, each record represents an important contribution to Swedish extreme metal history.   To commemorate these two landmark offerings, both discs will be released together with bonus tracks from three DESULTORY demos circa ’90 – ’91. In addition, each record, originally produced by renown Sunlight Studio owner/producer Tomas Skogsberg, will be remastered by multi-instrumentalist/producer Dan Swanö at Unisound Studio in Sweden.
Said Swanö of the undertaking: “I’ve been remastering DESULTORY‘s demos and  first two full lengths. The play time is more than 80 minutes! All the material has been restored to fit nicely together in the same playlist, and it’s amazing how much a few small tweaks can change the overall sound from ‘demo’ to ‘album.’ A funny anecdote is that I ‘forced’ the band to go to the home of Tomas Skogsberg in the middle of nowhere and pick up the original DAT tapes of the demos. Maximum quality achieved!”

The front covers and inside booklets have all bean tweaked with a subtle redesign by Greek graphic artist Anestis Goudas of Derz Design (Rotting Christ, I.C.S Vortex, Shagrath etc) and come with detailed liner notes by Terrorizer Magazine writer Olivier “Zoltar” Badin, with special assistance from DESULTORY frontman/guitarist Klas Morberg.

Commented Morberg: “When I wrote these lines in late September 2010, it was exactly 21 years since the DESULTORY journey began back in 1989. As we’re now writing a new chapter in our history by releasing the new album, we would also like to tell the complete story of the past. We’re really happy to be with Pulverised Records and are able to re-release these records, both brilliantly remastered by Dan Swanö. So, for all of you who’ve been with us from the start and anyone else who wants to know how it all began…Here it is. Enjoy!”
