VITAL REMAINS was created in 1988 by guitarist Paul Flynn, in Providence Rhode Island. From there the band became a driving force in the local death metal scene.
Their influences included acts such as CELTIC FROST, VENOM, BATHORY, SODOM & MERCYFUL FATE, often lending the band's sound a slightly more black metal edge
on occasion compared to their peers. ''Into Cold Darkness'' was the band's 2nd studio album & originally released in 1995. VITAL REMAINS continued to evolve &
establish their brand of blackened death metal & firm antichristian stance with an album of arguably even more ferocity,aided by the generally higher tempos &
inspired and intense riffing. With an air of satanic death metal running throughout, the album also contains coverversions of the classic black metal tracks
''Dethroned Emperor'' originally by CELTIC FROST & ''Countess Bathory'', by UK metal legends VENOM. This 2014 edition presented on 180g heavy weight black vinyl!
