The Cult Classic 6th album from The Forefather of USBM- Out of Print for years!
Judas Iscariot's massive 6th album “To Embrace the Corpses Bleeding”, originally released in 2002 on Red Stream Records and Out of Print since 2018, is finally available again! The forefather of US Black Metal, mastermind Akhenaten defined a sound that is still being copied today. Conceptually based on Nietzschean philosophies and filled with Nihilism and contempt for christianity, Judas Iscariot heralded a grim Black Metal sound from American shores years ahead of its time. “To Embrace the Corpses Bleeding” also signifies Judas Iscariot’s final full length album before mastermind Akhenaten laid the band to rest eternally.
Judas Iscariot's revered catalog includes the Highlights “The Cold Earth Slept Below...” (1996), “Thy Dying Light” (1996), “Arise, My Lord…” 7” EP (1996), “Of Great Eternity” (1997), “Distant in Solitary Night” (1999), “Heaven in Flames” (1999/2023), “Dethroned, Conquered and Forgotten” MCD (2000/2023) “To Embrace the Corpses Bleeding” (2002/2023), “Moonlight Butchery” MCD (2002), in addition to multiple limited edition 7”Eps and split releases and the much sought after, coveted live album “Under the Black Sun” (2000), all of which solidified Judas Iscariot as America’s #1 Black Metal act to this day.
A milestone album for US Black Metal and a major influence on scene luminaries such as Xasthur, I Shalt Become, Leviathan and Krieg to name but a few. Bow to the master!
