Since their 1984 formation, EXCEL released three studio albums as well as a number of demos and singles. Equally influenced by punk rock and heavy metal in both attitude and delivery, the band’s rabid musical approach and intelligent lyrics set them apart as a genre-defining act of the era. Produced by Randy Burns (Death, Possessed, Kreator, Suicidal Tendencies), Split Image was originally released through Suicidal and Caroline Records in 1987, and has since remained widely regarded as an elemental release as part of the ‘80s crossover explosion. Remastered by Brad Boatright (Bl’ast!, Sleep, Obituary, Black Breath) the “Split Image” Southern Lord issue comes with a massive amount of bonus material including the Welcome to Venice comp. tracks, Personal Onslaught Demo, Refuse to Quit Demo etc.). The LP Includes a 32 page 7”X7” booklet with tons of photos from the era and a 11” x 17” poster of the original Michael Seiff album cover artwork.
