SENTENCED - Four Classic Albums To Be Reissued On Vinyl In August; Pre-Order Launched

As of today you can pre-order the re-issues of four classic Sentenced albums on vinyl (due in August). Check here and order the copies of your choice. Below is some additional info on the four different LP releases.

Released in 1998, Frozen – the second album featuring Ville Laihiala on vocals – walks the paths Sentenced have chosen with the preceding album Down, featuring classic tracks as “Farewell”, “The Suicider”, “The Rain Comes Falling Down” or the outstanding instrumental tune “Mourn”, doubtlessly one of the finest and saddest instrumental tracks of all times. The vinyl version of Frozen was released by the Italian label Night Of The Vinyl Dead in 2007. Due to its strict limitation of 500 copies only it sold out in no time and has become one of the most sought after vinyl releases of the entire Sentenced catalogue. Now you have the chance to get your hands on this classic release in new shape with gatefold cover, the original silver album artwork, special vinyl mastering, inlay and 180g vinyl.

Frozen is available in the following vinyl colours:

Black: Unlimited, available to all outlets
Transparent-blue: Limited to 100 copies, exclusively available at CM Distro Europe
Silver: Limited to 200 copies, exclusively available at EMP
Clear: Limited to 200 copies, exclusively available at Levykauppa Äx

Crimson, released in 2000, manifested Sentenced’s reputation of being one of the most talented and most unique Finnish metal bands. The album contains classic tracks as “Bleed In My Arms”, “Fragile”, “Dead Moon Rising” and the mournful “Killing Me Killing You”. The album was so far only released on picture vinyl (limited to 1000 copies) that omitted the track “My Slowing Heart” due to the album’s extensive playing time. Now Crimson gets re-released on vinyl in its full glory with gatefold sleeve, vinyl mastering, inlay, double 180g vinyl and an etching on side. And of course it now includes the missing track.

This is the vinyl colour split:

Black: Unlimited, available to all outlets
Transparent-orange: Limited to 100 copies, exclusively available at CM Distro Europe
Yellow: Limited to 200 copies, exclusively available at EMP
Transparent-red: Limited to 200 copies, exclusively available at Levykauppa Äx
Golden: Limited to 100 copies, exclusively available at CM Distro US

Sentenced’s greatest success and until this very day one of the best gothic metal albums ever released. The Cold White Light is packed with the finest tracks the band has ever written: “Cross My Heart And Hope To Die”, “Brief Is The Light”, “Aika multaa muistot (Everything Is Nothing)”, “Excuse Me While I Kill Myself” or the epic final track “No One There” ... The Cold White Light oozes of unforgettable melodies and haunting Finnish melancholy. Originally released on limited black vinyl, the LP version of The Cold White Light has become one of the rarest Sentenced releases. Now the album is offered on vinyl again, with gatefold cover, 180g vinyl, special vinyl mastering and inlay. There is a bunch of different vinyl colours available.

Be quick as those will be gone very soon:

Black: Unlimited, available to all outlets
Clear: Limited to 100 copies, exclusively available at CM Distro Europe
Transparent-blue: Limited to 200 copies, exclusively available at EMP
White: Limited to 200 copies, exclusively available at Levykauppa Äx
Silver: Limited to 100 copies, exclusively available at CM Distro US

Sentenced’s swan song album and a worthy end of a flawless discography. “The Funeral Album” combines all the strengths of Sentenced for one last time. “May Today Become The Day”, “Vengeance Is Mine”, “Despair-Ridden Hearts” or “End Of The Road” show the band’s uniqueness and talent for one last time. This new vinyl version comes with gatefold sleeve, 180g vinyl, inlay and vinyl mastering.

Offered in the following vinyl colours:

Black: Unlimited, available to all outlets
Clear: Limited to 100 copies, exclusively available at CM Distro Europe
Golden: Limited to 200 copies, exclusively available at EMP
Silver: Limited to 200 copies, exclusively available at Levykauppa Äx
