Decibel Magazine premieres Blast No.1 – Blastbeat Tribute To Type O Negative

5th September 2023 0 By Jon Deaux

In a tribute that blends extreme genres like grind, crust, D-beat, powerviolence, and death metal, “Blast No.1 – Blastbeat Tribute To Type O Negative” will be released on September 22, 2023. The project, meticulously curated by 783Punx, brings together 19 riveting covers by some of the world’s most volatile bands.

Listen to the album at this location:

In a unique tribute, bands take iconic, often slower, Type O Negative songs and transform them into fast-paced grindcore tracks. “Take a slow and long Type O Negative song and convert it into a short and super-fast grindcore song, but try to keep it as recognizable as possible,” says Edi of 783Punx. Bands like HELLBASTARD, SCHISMOPATHIC, PROLETAR, and ABADDON INCARNATE are among the contributors.

A particular highlight of the release is its visual element, blending classic Type O Negative style with familiar symbols to every blastcore fan. Ada from Bite The Dust is credited for the artwork.

The tribute comes in multiple formats and editions, including a standard CD, a deluxe CD box set, and various tape and LP editions. Each offering includes unique features like 24-page booklets, special stickers, and even a T-shirt bundle.

  • CD: Jewel case with a 24-page booklet featuring band pictures and special ToN album cover interpretations.
  • Deluxe CD Boxset: 7-inch pizza box containing a deluxe CD, two postcards, and a double-sided, full-color, ethically sourced T-shirt.
  • Tape: Comes in two versions—retail and band exclusive—packed in a plastic case with a hype sticker and J-Card.
  • Deluxe LP: 180g. black LP housed in a heavy gatefold, with a D-side screen print. Additionally, it comes with 12x12cm stickers and postcards.

All these variants can be preordered now on 783Punx’s Linktree.
