Louisville, Kentucky black metal horde, ANAGNORISIS, will re-unleash their acclaimed new album, Beyond All Light, adding multiple colors of vinyl to the list of formats already available.
Following its initial digital self release, the band also released a digipak CD version, followed by a 100-copy cassette run via Like Young Records. Now, this Friday, November 30th, ANAGNORISIS will offer a deluxe LP set containing Beyond All Light with re-designed artwork and a custom fold-old packaging on 150-gram 12″ on black, red, and blue vinyl. The pack also includes a copy of the Beyond All Light CD, a printed narrative about the ideas and concepts of the lyrics, signed and numbered by vocalist Zachary Kerr, a live, pro-shot DVD from the band’s set at Louisville Deathfest 2013 and other bonus footage and an 11″ x 17″ stylized poster of the band, all for $25! These sets are limited to 100 and will only be available until December 27th. Additionally, the standard black vinyl LP will be available at a special pre-order price for $18. Preorders will be available at music.anagnorisis.com.
Additionally, ANAGNORISIS will release a yellow pressing of the LP to be sold exclusively through Like Young Records, as well as a marbled edition to be sold exclusively on tour.

“An album of massive builds, harsh climaxes, and ambitious track lengths, Beyond All Light necessitates a monstrous finale… Where other acts might break the momentum, Anagnorisis simply pile layers beneath the musical heap, with the rhythm section somehow growing ever a bit more malevolent.” – Pitchfork
“One of my very favorite black metal albums of 2013… epic, melodic, technically flawless black metal that is somehow also brutal, raw, and kinetic: The whole thing is somehow equal parts Dissection and Nails.” – Stereogum
“American black metal is a sprawling continent; a manifest destiny yet to be frozen in place, ossified, and made into a museum piece. It’s a thing that moves and lives and breathes and, frankly, doesn’t need your recognition. I think Anagnorisis understands this, and it’s why Beyond All Light, despite speaking in a familiar language, still sounds boldly new and ultimately vital. 8.5/10” – Last Rites
“… dynamic and absolutely epic, capturing haunting atmospheres and reaching devastating peaks.” – Heavy Blog Is Heavy
