Originally released as a double CD on the Tumult label in 2002, “Verräter” was the first LEVIATHAN release to introduce the black metal entity to a wider audience much beyond those select local few who were previously aware of the LEVIATHAN beast through the obtainment of the slew of limited pressed demos Wrest had released (around 15 or so demos) within the shadows between 1998-2002. “Verräter” was a collection of carefully curated tracks compiled from the collection of demos and the various independent CDR releases Wrest recorded from said time period. It was through “Verräter” that would set the stage for what would become one of the most important and influential black metal artists of our time.
Presented as a 4xLP, “Verräter” was re-mastered for vinyl by Dan Lowndes from the original CDR mixes of the tracks. Presented in an 8-panel vinyl jacket with a slipcase, the new presentation of “Verräter” will feature expansive new artwork by Abomination Hammer and liner notes by Neill Jameson.
