Greyhaze Records has made the forthcoming audio-enhanced vinyl/cassette reissue of Sarcófago‘s “The Worst” available for streaming.
Greyhaze Records will release “The Worst” August 24 on vinyl and cassette. The reintroduction of this classic album for the first time on vinyl and tape, complementing the already-existing CD version, comes with massive audio and visual improvements. The album’s audio went through a high-quality remastering process, including audio sourced from original master tapes. “The Worst’s” reissue also comes with an expanded visual package including previously unavailable photos from the album’s photo session.
Originally released in 1996, Sarcófago’s “The Worst” was to be the band’s last full-length album. Despite criticism on its use of a drum machine, the album serves as a manifest of Metal’s elemental counter-culture stance. It was a spit in the face of the then emergent rise of canned, subpar versions of heavy music such as Grunge and Nu Metal.
Sarcófago’s “The Worst” is so much more than the cheap criticism it has received over the years. It is one of the most cherished offerings by the band and a clear symbol that despite attacks on its very essence, true Metal cannot be tamed or boxed into a palatable package. True metal should be wild, non-conforming, bizarre satanic noise.
