Hells Headbangers recently reissued the debut full-length from extreme metal stalwarts Nunslaughter, Hells Unholy Fire. Originally out in 2000, a redesigned package improves yet still reveres the original artwork, much like the recent improvements to High on Fire's debut by Southern Lord. As, for me, a band like Nunslaughter exists on the fringe of my listening rotation, much of the appeal lies in the visual aspect of the records, almost as important as the musical. And like many of their records - and particularly vinyl reissues - Hells Headbangers do not disappoint here with regard to the physical product, its packaging and overall presentation.
50/50 split reissues from Electric Wizard. While occupying different genres, the two reissues are absolutely comparable in overall quality and, with complementary aesthetics, make a nice Satanic-themed set for the occult-obsessed. And while it's a single platter compared to double-LP sets, Hells Unholy Fire is kinder to the wallet at half the price of its devlish brethren.
currently priced at $14.44, Hells Unholy Fire is a hell of a deal.
