Control Denied’s debut CD, The Fragile Art of Existence, the true metal juggernaut piloted by Death mastermind Chuck Schuldiner, is receiving both 2 and 3-disc deluxe treatments from Relapse Records. Release is slated for Oct. 26. Some killer shirts, including Control Denied, Chuck tribute and Death designs, are also available. Can’t wait to have the 3-disc version in my collection chock fulla rare demos! Click on the album cover below to head on over to the Relapse site.
I’m also pleased to announce that I’ve been asked to pen the liner notes to Relapse’s reissue of Death’s Individual Thought Patterns. A massive thanks to Eric Greif, attorney and business manager for the Schuldiners, for giving me the opportunity!!
