SINDROME’S two demos “Into The Halls Of Extermination” and “Vault Of Inner Conscience” are, quite rightly, considered legendary recordings. Both have been bootlegged dozens of times throughout the last 25 years, so it’s about time to offer the official version, done in close cooperation with Sindrome’s vocalist Troy Dixler. “Resurrection – The Complete Collection” offers everything you can ask for: The two demos which have been remastered, unreleased tracks, a personal introduction by Slayer mag editor Metallion, an extensive interview by Laurent Ramadier of Snakepit magazine, comments from many musicians such as Terry Butler (Massacre/Death/Obituary), Michael Amott (Arch Enemy/Spiritual Beggars), Craig Locicero (Forbidden), Tommy Victor (Prong) and others as well as a bonus CD with a raw live recording from 1988. This live recording offers the two previously unreleased tracks “Surround The Prisoner” and “Psychic Warfare“. As a special extra offer, the “Into The Halls Of Extermination” has been expanded by the lost recording of the song “Brought To The End”. The booklet included with the CD and LP version is packed with photos, old flyers, additional original artwork and the lyrics.

Resurrection – The Complete Collection will be released on March 4th.  The CD version for North America will be out a bit later – on March 25th – but can already be pre-ordered.

“I had the pleasure of seeing Sindrome live many times when they opened for Death on the Scream Bloody Gore tour in the late ’80s. They were such a great live band. Very energetic and heavy. They were the band that should’ve made it. Vault of Inner Conscience is such a killer demo I’m glad to see that both demos are getting a proper release.” Terry Butler (Death, Massacre, Obituary)

“When death metal was still very much in its infancy Sindrome were huge in the worldwide underground tape trading community. I used to wonder how it was that every band from Bolt Thrower, Napalm Death, Sepultura to Death, everybody knew who Sindrome was.” –Greg Fulton (Znöwhite / Cyclone Temple)

Note on the live recording: This is an unedited live recording, not a top-notch soundboard recording. The sound quality is raw. So consider the live CD as a bonus to the release rather than a professionally recorded live release. It captures the spirit of a SINDROME live show pretty well and offers the two unreleased tracks “Surround The Prisoner” and “Psychic Warfare”. Prepare to descend into madness!

“Sindrome’s Into the Halls of Extermination is one of those classic 1987 era demos that will always stick in your brain. Great songs and great vocals from Troy Dixler. Still have the original (thanks Fred Estby) and it is great seeing this classic being released….finally!!”
