To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Poland’s PANDEMONIUM the band’s 1992 demo "Devilri" has just been re-released on vinyl, strictly limited to 500 copies. One half of the entire edition was pressed on black vinyl, and the other on white vinyl. The record is packaged in an untypical black-and-white envelope, solid, hand-numbered jacket and equipped with a special full-format twelve-pages booklet with lots of archival and unique material concerning Pandemonium from the early 90s. As a bonus, an exclusive digipak of the new "Promo 2010" is enclosed with all copies. It contains the unofficial versions of two new Pandemonium tracks (‘Black Forest’ and ‘God Delusion’) from the upcoming album "Misanthropy". Additionally, there’s a video on it, with excerpts from gigs of two of last year’s festivals and a concert video for ‘Frost’. For more information write to email@example.com
