Nominon Reveals Vinyl Record Release
Swedish old school death metallars Nominon have recently issued an announcement about releasing their new album:

 "The moment we are all waiting so eagerly for will soon be here. Of course we're talking about the release of the fifth Nominon album 'The Cleansing' (Deathgasm Records). The cover artwork by Juanjo Castellano has been floating around a bit on the net for some reason, but unfortunately it was not the finalized version. Below you can take a look at the RIGHT version of 'The Cleansing' once and for all, ENJOY!

 "The exact release date is still to be set, it all depends on how much time the manufacturing of the LP vinyl will take?! The label and the band have decided to wait and release the LP and the CD at the same time, just for the sake of it.

 "We can however reveal some further details about this coming storm. The LP will be released as a Gatefold one, the 250 first copies will come as a limited edition with a different colour on the vinyl (compared to the rest) as well as including a sew on patch. The first edition of the CD will be a Digipack version with a 12-page booklet. DEATHGASM RDS also plan to make a special die hard bundle including the LP / CD + T-shirt, yet more info on that particular version will follow later on. Here's the complete tracklist of 'The Cleansing:'
