Vendetta Records present a reissue of Woe's A Spell For The Death Of Man, originally released in 2008. Your Last Rites's review of A Spell For The Death Of Man upon its initial release: "Thrusting mightly, like a craggy Nightside Eclipse encrusted in crumbling punk nihilism, this album rarely relents. As the work of a single man, A Spell For The Death Of Man is a nearly-obsessive vision of destruction (as well as its cathartic wake), but is devoid of theatrics and posturing. Xos' screams of vitriol fully embrace the human/animal primalism that condemns our very existence, and his command of the riff is as organic as it is supreme. The ballsy, black-punk sneer that climaxes 'Longing Is All That Will Remain' again spews nothing but honesty, albeit through mouthfuls of strained sinew and shards of bone. The non-stop venom that volcanoes from the core of 'I See No Civilization' is of unmatched potency, instigating volume cranks and neck fractures with ease. Woe takes the 'depressive' tag that has been glued to State-side blackness for the past few years and turns its head on an axis. While the deliberate torture of the closing track, 'Memento Mori' sludges things up (down), it sounds almost anti-climactic when stacked against the rest of this white-hot tome. A Spell For The Death of Man is easily 2008's most criminally over-looked album, and is quite simply the most important black metal release in years -- not by virtue of perfection, but of relevance. A new dawn is upon us. Adjust accordingly."
