DARK SYMPHONIES / THE CRYPT is proud to announce our cooperation with Estonian death thrash act AGGRESSOR to reissue their 1992 debut album Procreate the Petrifactions with the Demo 1991 included as bonus tracks.
The beginnings of Aggressor lay back in 1989 when Villem Tarvas, Marek Piliste, Kristo Kotkas and Marko Atso started playing together as an unnamed band. At the start of 1990 they released their first demo album named Indestructible – the music on this recording was influenced by German thrash metal band Kreator. Their first big performance was on 17 April 1990, and a year later they put together a 4 track demo which resulted in the recording of their first album, Procreate the Petrifactions in June of 1992. Later on they played several shows in Moscow and in 1994 they released their second album Of Long Duration Anguish. The band was first introduced to a wider audience in the summer of 1995 at the Rock Summer festival in Estonia, where Aggressor headlined the B-stage – the crowd gave them a warm welcome.
CD will be designed after the original 1992 original, taking elements from the original layout with attention to detail, even down to the logo and typeface for a touch of nostalgia. Generally we always use the original DAT tapes to master our releases from. This time we were fortunate enough to be able to master directly from the original 1/2" analog tapes! Also included are brand new liner notes from original founding member Marko Atso.
