Sweden’s GOREMENT have signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records for the release of the band’s entire recordings. "Within The Shadow Of Darkness – The Complete Recordings" will be released on September 24, 2012 on 2 CD and double vinyl (incl. the 2 CD) as well as digital download. The entire musical content has been remastered from the original master tapes by Dan Swanö, who has already been in charge of the production of GOREMENT’s demos and the "Into Shadows" EP. Dan Swanö comments: "GOREMENT was one of the first bands outside my "circle" that I ever recorded. The first demo was done on a 4 track portastudio, and I must say I am a bit surprised that the sound on that one is the coolest after the restoration!! Gorement could have been so much bigger if they had recorded the 1st album in a studio that would have given them the fat and "gory" sound their music deserves. The songs are catchy and the musicianship high above average in the SweDeath scene at the time. It was a pure pleasure to revisit these recordings and carve out the best sonics possible." "Within The Shadow Of Darkness – The Complete Recordings" includes the following: CD1 – "The Ending Quest" (album 1994), CD2 – "Human Relic" demo (1991), "Obsequies …" demo (1991), "Into Shadows" EP (1992), "Promo ’95" demo (1995) as well as 5 previously unreleased live tracks from 1991 (only on CD). The release comes with artwork by German / Swiss artist Carlos Schwabe and liner notes by the band, a detailed interview done by Nicola Costantini (well-known for his books "Encyclopedia of Svensk Dödsmetall" and "The Return … of Svensk Dödsmetall"), all lyrics and loads of old flyers, photos, covers, fanzine interviews etc.
