Oldschool Metal Maniac - English Version


Century Media Records has announced the first-ever official "complete recordings" release of TREBLINKA, one of most notorious death/black metal bands of all times.

TREBLINKA was founded in 1987 by Johan "Lucifer Hellslaughter" Edlund and Jörgen "Juck the Ripper" Thullberg. During the band's short existence of only two years, TREBLINKA released two demo tapes and one seven-inch EP. After the release of the last recording, the now infamous "Severe Abominations" EP, the band changed its name to TIAMAT and became one of the biggest and most influential metal bands of the Nineties. Since then, the TREBLINKA recordings remained untouched by the band and were instead heavily exploited by bootleggers all over the world.

"Shrine Of The Pentagram", the first-ever fully authorized release of TREBLINKA since 1989, will be released on October 7 as a kingsize 3CD mediabook, a deluxe 5LP box set with LP-sized booklet as well as digital download.

Daniel Ekeroth, author of "Swedish Death Metal", did an elaborate interview with Jörgen "Juck" Thullberg and Stefan "Emetic" Lagergren, revealing many unknown details and a lot of entertaining side notes from the history of the band, while Olivier Badin (writer for Terrorizer and Iron Fist) interviewed Johan "Hellslaughter" Edlund for his view on the importance and influence of TREBLINKA.
