Stars aligned and doom started to spread upon mankind. And while pandemic surged, the tentacles-faced beast awoke from its aeons-long silent slumber within the walls of the underwater city of R’lyeh to visit the maze of the unknown Kadath once more!
After 20 years of silence and countless unofficial reissues of their back-catalogue, CATACOMB decided it was time to spread to words of Abdul al-Hazred, writing a new chapter of the Necronomicon. Two singles got quickly released to celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary and, after a guest solo on MERCYLESS’ “The Mother of All Plagues”, a deal was quickly inked with XENOKORP for the release of a rewritten and re-recorded version of their 1993 cult demo, “In the Maze of Kadath”… and more!
This haunted new version, titled “Back to Unknown Kadath”, mastered by Patrick GUIRAUD at WSL studio (NORDJEVEL, IN THE WOODS, HIMINBJORG…), will be released on December 10, 2021 as a gorgeous 12 inches 180g Heavy Vinyl with audio on A side and screen print on B side along with a highly-limited cassette tape version.
