Roots of Earth and Rudiments of Mutilation, the double LP comprised of the first two full length albums from Full of Hell, represents a decade coming full circle and a retrospective project at a meeting point on a long road. Roots of Earth Are Consuming My Home was originally released in 2011 as the debut LP from the band on A389 Records, and presented them at their most embryonic stage, pulling from many corners of extreme music while discovering a core sound that is still recognizable in one form or another to this day. 2013 saw it’s follow up, Rudiments of Mutilation: the next evolutionary step in the Full of Hell sound, now seeking to forge one cohesive wall of sound, rather than a collection disparate songs.
This deluxe reissue marks the first release to come directly from the band, and most definitely not the last. Housed in a 350gsm cardstock gatefold LP jacket on 160 gram vinyl and featuring mesmerizing artwork by Brian Uhl (Gentle Mercies) that dives deeply into the lyrical themes from both records and distills them into a meticulous and psychedelic landscape. The gatefold also contains a collage of moments from years 1-10 of the band’s travels and an insert featuring all original artwork for both records.
