Begotten share a music video for »Judges« to celebrate remastered vinyl release of their 2001 self-titled debut on Black Farm Records
July 21th, 2022 has been set as the release date for the Black Farm Records vinyl remaster of the 2001 self-titled debut from New York’s Begotten.
The truly doomed Begotten formed in 1997 and released one album on Man’s Ruin. In 2002 the label went under, Begotten’s lead guitarist/vocalist M Anselmo was diagnosed with throat cancer, Amanda lost 75% of her hearing and drummer Sefcik joined Kings Destroy. After a 15-year hiatus Begotten was reawakened in 2016 persevering to bring you new, plodding riffs from a heart that has slowly begun to beat again.
To celebrate the release, you can watch a music video for »Judges« below!
From Black Farm Records:
July 21, 2001 sees the release on Man’s Ruin Records of New York’s Begotten’s sole album.
Mastered (and freshly re-mastered for this vinyl edition) by Roger Lian (Slayer, Monster Magnet, Pantera), this self-titled album is one of the true highlights of that pre-9/11 era, when Doom was outdated and all forms of “new” metal were trendy.
Fiery riffs of doom and a crushing wall of sound is what Begotten had to offer.
It took 21 years for this doom monster to finally come alive on the vinyl format, and it’s a real honour to have been given the opportunity to release it through the Black Farm banner.
Begotten had so much to offer and still has!
Scott “Wino” Weinrich was such a fan of the band (they toured together back in the days), that he accepted to pen a few words for the insert.
