To celebrate their 25th anniversary, Swedish progressive metallers OPETH have teamed up with book publisher Rocket 88 to work on the official OPETH book.

In this amazing book, the band will tell you their full story for the first time — the good, the bad, the ugly — in their own words, with a little help from former members, label bosses, management, producers, and anyone else that’s been there for the key moments in the band’s illustrious career.

OPETH‘s long and winding story will be illustrated throughout with rare and unseen images of life on the road, working in the studio, and other unique glimpses into the world of OPETH.

Rocket 88 Books is inviting fans to get in touch if they have any items of visual interest: photos, posters, ticket stubs, flyers, anything!

Don’t send images yet, just let Rocket 88 know what you have and they will review all that’s sent in with consideration for inclusion in what will be a truly exceptional book about one of metal’s most important bands. Your stuff could be in the book!

Xtreem Music has issued the following announcement about Supuration releasing a compilation album:

“Yes, the mighty French legend Supuration (aka SUP) are back from the crematory in form of a retrospective collection CD which includes all the earliest and most brutal stuff of the band from ’89 /’90 when they were in their most death metal shape right before they started to experiment with clean vocals and more varied sounds.

“‘Back from the Crematory’ is the generic title of this cult release which is planned for an imminent release on September 16th. The CD includes the awesome band’s debut self-financed mini CD ‘Sultry Obsession’ (’90), their only demo ‘Official Rehearsal’ (’90) as well as the impossible-to-find demo of the band’s very 1st studio recording ‘Haunted’ under their previous monicker ETSICROXE as well as a 9-song live show, both from ’89.

“This masterpiece comes with remastered sound and packed in a total old-fashioned layout in contrast to their latter weird & sophisticated designs. Includes killer 12-pages booklet featuring an exclusive retro-interview, liner notes, cover and tons of old photos & flyers. This definitely a must-have release not only for every Supuration fan, but for every lover of the good old death metal from late 80′s and early 90′s!”
