It will be available as a kingsize 3 CD mediabook, a deluxe 5 LP box set (with LP sized booklet) and as digital download. TREBLINKA were founded in 1987 by Johan "Lucifer Hellslaughter" Edlund and Jörgen "Juck the Ripper" Thullberg and released two demo tapes and the "Severe Abominations" 7" EP.

Century Media have furthermore licensed the entire catalogue of French Death Metallers MASSACRA. The first release will be a demo compilation entitled "Day Of The Massacra", which includes the three demos "Legion Of Torture", "Final Holocaust" and "Nearer From Death". All tracks have been remastered at DMS by Ulf Horbelt (MORBID, ASPHYX, GRAVE, NECROPSY etc). The booklet will feature an in-depth interview with original MASSACRA guitarist Jean-Marc Tristani and the artwork will be created by Thomas Westphal (Necromaniac Zine, Germany). "Day Of The Massacra" will be released as a standard jewelcase CD (on midprice) and standard LP (with 180g vinyl and inlay) on November 04, 2013.

Here’s an official statement of MASSACRA’s Jean-Marc Tristani about the re-releases: "After so many years, we finally agreed to re-release our old material, our first demos and our albums including some bonus and exclusive stuff. To be honest, going revival is not our cup of tea at all but we must admit that the Century Media team has been so persistent and convinced us to release something official, of high quality, enhanced by some old stuff, original and personal…" More about MASSACRA at www.facebook.com/pages/massacra/21261202219
