DARK SYMPHONIES / THE CRYPT is honored to re-introduce the world to one of the most underrated death bands from the 90s – Tampa, Florida based death metal act EULOGY. Forget paying the insane ebay prices anymore. We are pleased to offer the amazing 1993 EP THE ESSENCE, a long lost obscure gem of unique and brutal death metal once again, complete with the band's 1992 DISMAL Demo. Both releases have been mastered from the original analog tapes for the best possible sound.
Quotes guitarist Jarrett Pritchard:
"I'm happy to tell you all that I've very nearly completed the remix and master of "The Essence" and "Dismal" for a re-release special edition that will land just in time for 25 years. It looks like it is coming out on a deluxe CD and Gatefold vinyl. Been collecting photos and everything we can find to include in this- So thankfully no more of these ridiculously priced throwback CDs. Things like this take time. It's not just turning knobs- it is a journey down a road none of us have walked for a long time- there is a fine line between presenting something as it always should have been and destroying a legacy. I've taken great care to not do the latter. I'm feeling very excited about all of this and will update soon. (Yes it's really happening).
One more thing- without the people who appreciate what we were doing there would be no point. I just want to say how much I genuinely appreciate the lasting interest and seemingly undying support. Truly. Thank you from all of us. ~ Jarrett"
