Best sounding edition ever of this timeless Italian Thrash Metal masterpiece. Transfered from the original reels and specially mastered for vinyl to reach the most faithful audiophile quality, reproducing with analog warmness and passion the True original sound of when it was conceived back in 1987. "IX" is without a doubt the fastest and most destructive Bulldozer release to date, showing a band at the top of its compositional maturity. Phenomenal riffage combining their Blackened Thrash trademark with a Speed Metal vibe, rentless aggressive drums and the incredible vocal delivery of the evil lord AC Wild!! Songs like "Desert!", "Ilona the very best", "Heaven's jail" are absolute Thrash commandments! This is 100% guaranteed the best sounding version ever made, assisted and approved by original band members. Served for the first time in a deluxe gatefold sleeve including a selection of rare, never-seen-before photos. And there's more, a very special bonus: we have unearthed a completely forgotten reel featuring the band's alternate mix discarded by Discomagic, the label that released the 1st edition back in the '80s.. as it sounds killer and highly dynamic we have added it as an extra slimcase CD included in the gatefold, this is a sort of "director's cut" proposed by the band and totally unreleased until now!
