Official press release:
To commemorate 25 years of the loudest, hardest, heaviest and the very best heavy metal on the planet, Metal Blade Records will re-release seminal metal albums from artists that have and continue to shape and influence the genre. The 25th Anniversary Editions will be released throughout 2007 and will include unreleased bonus tracks, DVD's of behind-the-scenes or live footage and additional liner notes from the artists themselves.
From a garage in a Los Angeles suburb in 1982 to becoming the leading, truly independent heavy metal record label in the world, Metal Blade Records continues to lead the way in introducing artists to the heavy metal world, which we have continually defined.
The first reissues of the year will include Lizzy Borden's "Master of Disguise" and Cannibal Corpse's "Vile."
Lizzy Borden's "Master of Disguise" will feature a completely remastered version of the original disc including two bonus tracks "Vampire Kiss" and "The Orchestra" (mixed by Elliot Solomon), in addition to a comprehensive DVD title "Under the Mask."
Cannibal Corpse's "Vile" will feature a completely remastered version of the original disc. DVD includes exclusive unreleased concert footage. Cannibal Corpse live at the Berkeley School February 3rd and 4th, 1997. Nineteen tracks recorded over two sold out shows. Captured live in concert, Cannibal Corpse’s first U.S. tour with new vocalist George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher.
