Relapse's 25th year is coming to a close, and as such, we thought we'd take some time to reflect on the label's history, bit by bit. This special double episode edition of the podcast features an interview with Relapse founder and president Matt Jacobson, who has picked a selection of his favorite songs as well as those that represented pivotal moments in Relapse history! This episode also features a brief preview of what's to come for Relapse in 2016, and includes new music from OBSCURA, LYCUS, BLACK TUSK, and BLOODIEST! Also includes a special podcast-exclusive premiere of OPPROBRIUM's "Serpent Temptation", off the upcoming remastered reissue of the band's landmark debut Serpent TemptationDOWNLOAD, PLUG IN AND TURN IT UP!
