“KUR-NU-GI-A”, the first proper demo by the legendary Swedish death metal band EDGE OF SANITY fronted by Dan Swanö (also of NIGHTINGALE, BLOODBATH, ODYSSEY, PAN-THY-MONIUM) has been made available as a 12-inch picture-disc vinyl via Black Mark. The recording, which was originally released in 1990, was remixed by Dan.
Commented Swanö: “I always felt we grew up a bit too fast, We got caught up in the growing death metal scene and tuned down the guitars and bought the ‘right’ distortion pedals and tried to be the new ENTOMBED.
“This demo showcases the original sound of EDGE OF SANITY. During this period we still listened to a lot of progressive and challenging metal of all kinds and I still believe the songs have their true version on this demo.
“I transferred the original 4-track cassette masters using state-of-the-art digital technology, and remixed them and finally gave them the sound I dreamt of giving them 21 years ago. The dream of finally having this classic recording released on 12″ picture disc has come true.”
