‘Abomination Virginborn’ is Nuclear Winter’s final chapter, Old School Death Metal written and recorded in 2003. Featuring A.V. (guitars / vocals) and V.V. (drums) who went to form Dead Congregation after this recording. All artwork and lyrics done by the late Timo Ketola.
"For those who’ve been on a coma for the last 13 years, “Abomination Virginborn” is the most important Greek demo of the 00’s. It also is the recording who put Greek death metal in the map of the international underground, paving the way for the DEAD CONGREGATION phenomenon.
It comprises three timeless songs of dark, old-school death metal, soaked in the underground vibes of that era, and more specifically those emanating from Sweden. Indeed, NW were in contact and osmosis with the Swedish scene and bands such as Kaamos, Repugnant, Revokation, Insision (some of them have had releases on Nuclear Winter Records, the label of the band’s mastermind Anastasis Valtsanis).
However, the strongest link with the Swedish scene is the contribution of renowned underground artist Timo Ketola who, being a close friend of the band, has contributed not only the artwork but also the ucanny lyrics.
The band (R.I.P.) has chosen not to include any bonus tracks (eg. the two from the split-7″EP with INCRIMINATED) and righteously so, as the aura of the original release is thus preserved."
