The reissue of Stab Wounds by Germany’s Dark Fortress is not only a worthy addition to any black metal library, this remastered version is a great example of how black metal can supersede its clichéd, raw and unfinished roots and instead exist as a well-rounded, high-quality product that values melody and composition without sacrificing any of its implied nihilism in the process.

In 1969, few American rock acts were exploding like Creedence Clearwater Revival. To commemorate this momentous 50th anniversary, Craft Recordings has just reissued two of the band’s chart-busting albums from that year, Green River and Willy and the Poor Boys on 180-gram, half-speed mastered, vinyl LPs. For true classic rock aficionados, these reissues are true treasures. Come for the authentic retro factor and superb audio quality. But stay for the timeless tunes!
