24 Years Ago: ABRUPTUM release Obscuritatem Advoco Amplectere Me on Deathlike Silence Productions


Yeah, I see ABRUPTUM releasing LP's, and that is already planned. Our debut album will be released by OCCULTUS & EURONYMOUS (Only EURONYMOUS) but I don't think it will be release by D.S.P., and it will be absolutely not to get in any normal record store. The album will be total underground!!! By the way, the album is already recorded and it is 60 minutes of pure evil, dark, mysterious music.

Eventually, on this day in 1993, that album - Obscuritatem Advoco Amplectère Me - was released by Euronymous; and it was on Deathlike Silence Productions. Anti Mosh 004.

...Euronymous did a great try when he said that "Abruptum is the audial essence of pure black evil".
We are not a band and we do no music.

Just over a year later ABRUPTUM would release In Umbra Malitiae Ambulabo, in Aeternum in Triumpho Tenebrarum. Again through D.S.P., though of course after the death of Euronymous.

He would have been honoured to release our LP, just like he was when he released our first. Our 2nd LP belonged to DSP and with the release of it DSP went to it's grave, in my heart.
