Ad Patres Releasing Album On Limited Edition Cassette

Kaotoxin Records has announced the release of Ad Patres’ debut full-length, “Scorn Aesthetics,” as a limited-edition -100 copies only – cassette tape. Specially mastered at the Ubik studio for this physical support and featuring a bonus track taken from the band’s 2010 promo, the cassette is set for release this quarter.

The bonus track, “To the Fathers,” is a demo version featuring both Axel Doussaud (the band’s current singer) and Julien Lemasson (ex-I.O.S.T., former Ad Patres singer and founding member) on vocals. Fully remastered, this version of the track differs from the one appearing on the band’s promo CD-R and split tape with USA’s Writhing; released in 2012 by Nihilistic Holocaust.

This third cassette tape release by Kaotoxin marks the starting point of a series of limited edition cassette tape re-releases of all of the label’s back-catalog of full-length albums. Expect more in the coming months by the likes of Antropofago, Dehuman, Drawers, Eye Of Solitude, Insain, Nephren-Ka, Nolentia, Savage Annihilation, We All Die (laughing) and more.
