NAPALM DEATH's classic debut 'Scum', along with CARCASS' legendary album 'Heartwork', have been reissued on Full Dynamic Range vinyl and are available once again.

Earache Records revolutionised the way music fans can enjoy their favourite metal albums several years ago with the launch of the Full Dynamic Range (FDR) format.  A counteraction to the "Loudness Wars", Full Dynamic Range vinyl ensures that fans hear the music as it was intended to sound - pure and organic audio pressed straight to 180-gram vinyl from the original studio analogue or DAT tapes.

After the original FDR pressings of NAPALM DEATH's 'Scum' and CARCASS' 'Heartwork' quickly sold out, fans have since been clamouring for another pressing, and are now able to get their hands on these metal classics once more.

Originally released in 1987, NAPALM DEATH's 'Scum' would go on to spawn an entire genre, influencing others for decades to come.  To this day, the album is still widely hailed as the most important grindcore album ever made, and regularly features in charts listing the best metal albums of all time.  See a video of the new 'Scum' FDR vinyl in action at

'Heartwork', the classic 1993 album from CARCASS, was the band's biggest selling album and their first to land in the top 50 of the UK charts.  Described as the band's breakthrough, it's still widely hailed as one of the best death metal albums of all time.  Check out a video of the new 'Heartwork' FDR vinyl in action at
