As part of an ongoing project to reissue the entire Cursed discography on vinyl (culminating in a brand new box set next year), Deathwish Inc. has announced the upcoming reissue of Cursed’s second album, the aptly titled II. Sadly, there is still no confirmed date for when the pre-orders for this album will begin.
The reissue will feature the following new album art work:
Here is what Deathwish Inc. had to say about the release, and the ongoing project, on their facebook page:
“Coming in early 2014, the vinyl reissue of “Two” from Cursed on Deathwish.
This new superior version of “Two” was manufactured using brand new pressing plates, making the release sound more monstrous than ever before. All of it presented in a gatefold jacket with revamped artwork and packaging.
This is the second in a series of singular represses of the entire Cursed full length catalog from Deathwish (“One” is now available). Cursed “Two” and “Three” albums were originally released by the defunct Goodfellow label, and are under exclusive license to Deathwish from Sonic Unyon Distribution.
A final limited box set of all three albums and a book of Cursed related material by Chris Colohan will be released later down the road via a partnership of Deathwish and Colohan’s own label, High Anxiety.
Cursed were Canada’s metallic monstrosity fronted by vocalist/lyricist Chris Colohan formerly of The Swarm, Left For Dead, and Ruination. The band also featured former Ire and Black Hand members.
Originally released in 2005, “Two” was the intense second album from Cursed. Distinctly their own animal, Cursed took the most powerful qualities of the aggressive sub-genres and turned them into something raw and explosive. Ultimately influencing and shaping the heavy music world as we know it today.”
