DARK SYMPHONIES / THE CRYPT is proud to present the long out of print classic 1993 debut album "Malicious" from Switzerland's brutal thrash metal act CAUSTIC!
With influences ranging from SLAYER, KREATOR, GRINDER and earlier SEPULTURA, CAUSTIC varied their style for a unique approach, guaranteed to satisfy all fans of extreme metal. It is an unusual and independent world of brilliant murderous riffs filled with wonderful calm moments. Also included is the band's amazing 1992 self titled EP.
Having long been out of print for 21 years and fetching insane prices online, we are proud to offer this release once again. We are working directly with original label owner and Excruciation drummer Andy Renggli, brother to guitarist Chris Renggli (R.I.P.) who has supplied the original cover artwork for both the album and the EP, new liner notes from Andy, drummer Levent Sunu and Excruciation vocalist Eugenio Meccariello, lyrics and classic band photos.
For the first time ever on vinyl and limited to 500 copies, 175 will be on black vinyl, 175 on magenta / purple marbled vinyl and 150 on crystal clear vinyl. Presented in a 350 gram gatefold jacket.
