DESPISED ICON Announce Anniversary Reissues Of Early Albums

Canadian deathcore pioneers, Despised Icon, celebrate their 20th anniversary in 2022, so it’s about time to re-discover the beginnings of the band…

Despised Icon’s debut album, Consumed By Your Poison (2002), and their sophomore album, The Healing Process (2005), are now being released again worldwide on January 7 via Century Media Records.

Both reissues will be available on limited coloured 180g vinyl variants with new vinyl mastering (+ Bonus CD), in the CD format and as Digital Albums - The Healing Process comes in an alternate, previously unreleased mix version! - with selected additional live-tracks from the band’s 2008 DVD-show as bonus.

Despised Icon checked in with the following comment: “To commemorate our 20th anniversary, we are releasing our debut album “Consumed By Your Poison” as well as our sophomore album “The Healing Process” again. “Consumed By Your Poison” is out on vinyl for the very first time and with the original artwork. “The Healing Process” comes with a completely different mix and mastering, a long lost mix version Yannick St-Amand did at the end of the recording session in June 2004. We hope you enjoy these pieces of the band’s history that changed our lives forever…“
