AGGRESSOR - Procreate the Petrifactions / Demo 1991
Dark Symphonies :: CD :: 13
Official reissue of the 1992 debut full-length by this Estonian Thrash/Death Metal act, featuring their 1991 demo as bonus tracks. The beginnings of Aggressor lay back in 1989 when Villem Tarvas, Marek Piliste, Kristo Kotkas and Marko Atso started playing together as an unnamed band. At the start of 1990 they released their first demo, named "Indestructible". The music on this recording was strongly influenced by Kreator. Their first big performance was on 17 April 1990, and a year later they put together a 4-track demo which resulted in the recording of their first album, "Procreate the petrifactions", in June of 1992. Later on they played several shows in Moscow, and in 1994 they released their second album, "Of long duration anguish". The band was first introduced to a wider audience in the summer of 1995 at the Rock Summer festival in Estonia, where Aggressor headlined the B-stage. The crowd gave them a warm welcome. This CD is designed after the original 1992 original, taking elements from the original layout with attention to detail, even down to the logo and typeface for a touch of nostalgia, and all songs are mastered directly from the original 1/2" analog tapes. Also included are brand new liner notes from original founding member Marko Atso.
