Limited to 400 copies in transparent green vinyl, trifold jacket & 12 page booklet.
This edition include: Visio Dei Beatifica demo, Neutral Forest demo, Fresco Lungs Ep. Phlegethon are absolutely the best kind of band. Having never achieved any sort of success nor received anything but the barest of accolades, and with only one "official" release to their credit (and an EP at that) this was a band that developed and explored at their own pace, free of any sort of commercial concern or expectation levied on them from a close-minded fan base. As a result of such a singular and uncompromised existence Phlegethon followed their muse to its outer wanderings and crafted some of the most engaging, interesting and totally rocking death metal that can be heard. The band never officially broke up despite little critical attention. Hiatuses were many and now the various members are involved in other more lauded projects like Hooded Menace, Vacant Coffin, Claws and Acid Witch but they have always come back to Phlegethon to reinterpret what death metal can actually sound like. It's weird without being alienating, fun without being stupid or mindless, heavy without being needlessly punishing and classicist without being redundant. This is hands down one of the best bands that ever graced the genre, a truly jewel in the crown of death metal.
