Xysma, the first Finnish grindcore band re issues via Svart Records their legendary sophomore album First and Magical (1993). The album was “a new magical beginning for Xysma”, as the band themselves put it. The most perfect amalgam of death metal and rocking stoner riffs, First and Magical may still be the crown jewel in all of their discography.
This new edition also features a second disc with the pre-production demo that has five tracks that at times sound quite different to what the band eventually recorded for the album.
The 2LP set is limited to 500 and it is out in December. Pre-orders available now.
