MZ.412 “Burning the temple of God” available on pre-order
Proud to distribute another masterpiece re-pressed on vinyl:
AnnapurnA is proud to present Mz.412’s classic Burning the Temple of God on deluxe vinyl format. Originally released in 1996 by the pivotal Cold Meat Industry but extremely rare to find on vinyl ever since, Burning the Temple of God is widely hailed as Mz.412’s greatest and most influential work. Although it is not the collective’s first album, Burning the Temple of God was starkly and strikingly unique upon its initial release, and would eventually shape the “black industrial” subgenre. Here, mulching tones of mangled guitar and electronics course through terrifyingly tribal, ritualistic rhythms, creating an atmosphere of mechanistic, dystopian collapse. Like the very bowels of Hell bursting upward – slowly, menacingly – through the long-unused smokestacks of rotten, derelict factories, Mz.412’s Burning the Temple of God is an experience like no other, a world unto itself…and one that eventually consumes the listener. And now, AnnapurnA releases this monumental album on the format its frightening visions so deserve. Remastered by N.G. Ekholm on January 2016. Hail the end!
