Line-up (members)

  • Hellslaughter : Guitars, Vocals
  • Emetic : Guitars
  • Juck : Bass

Recorded October 14-29, 1989. Produced by Tomas Skogsberg.

This was the first full-length album ever recorded at the famous Sunlight Studios, Stockholm, Sweden.

Re-released as 2nd press only, together with CMFT Rec by Metalcore Rec. LP and CD (CORE9).

CD bonus track:
10. The Sign of the Pentagram (3:54)

Reissued by Deadline in 1999 and Blackend in 2005 with an alternate cover.
Both versions are barebones layout and contain no lyrics or art.

Left : original cover.
Right: Digipack / jewelcase reissue.


The 1999 Deadline Reissue besides lacking in art / lyrics has a tracklisting error on the back cover, it lists track 9 as ''Where the Serpents Ever Dwell'', track 10 as ''Outro - Sumerian Cry (Part 2)'' and track 11 as ''The Sign of the Pentagram''.
However the actual CD is correct with the 10 tracks, and in their correct order.

Re-released 2009 on Candlelight / Plastic Head w/ bonus track "The Sign of the Pentagram", and original cover art by Kristian Wahlin, but incorrect lyrics in booklet.

Re-released in 2011 by Century Media. It divided track 9 into tracks 9 and 10.

Sumerian Cry Comments

level   (70/100)
oproti ich neskoršej tvorbe je po hudobnej stránke monotónne, priemerné a málo zaujímavé. Zvukovo mohlo byť lepšie, štýlovo je to prevažne death/doom metal. Aj growling je skôr zo slabších. Ale obal (na originále) sa im dosť podaril.
level   (85/100)
내가 좋아하는 스타일 데스메탈이다. 근데 8번트랙은 왜 뜬금없이 블루스가?
