Kataklysm - The mystical gate of reincarnation LP
"The Mystical Gate of Reincarnation" is an EP from the golden era of Kataklysm, originally released in 1993. It features 4 tracks of intense music that destroys everything: 3 tracks from the not very widely distributed demo "The Death Gate Cycle Of Reincarnation" and a killer bonus track called "The Orb Of Uncreation". Listen to the exceptional drumming on this album and you´ll understand why Kataklysm is called the northern hyperblast! Musically this album entrances the listener in the midst of a universe of disgruntled howls, bass-heavy overlays, unyielding tempo changes, brutally grinding guitar patterns, and technically precise and passionate drum work. The songs have absolutely no structure, it seems even a verse / chorus concept doesn´t exist. The lyrics are sung so fast they are impossible to follow even with the booklet. The record comes as one-sided LP with a laser engraving on side B, housed in a 350gr gatefold cover and black anti-static inner sleeve. Limited to 566 copies on black wax.
