Limited edition black vinyl, gatefold. IXXI, or simply 9/11, was founded in 2006 by Acerbus (Ondskapt) and the recently deceased Nattdal (Lifelover, Dimhymn, Ondskapt). Together with vocalist Totalscorn (Zavorash), bassist Avsky (Ondskapt), and drummer Selin, they set out to perform violent acts of blackened thrash metal terror. Their self-titled debut was released in the middle of 2007, and despite being a decent piece of black thrash, never saw much attention beyond a side-project of the better known Ondskapt. Half a year later they followed it up with Assorted Armament, seeing Selin replaced by Smoker, and showcasing a band transforming into a multifaceted chimera. The album is being re-released through Osmose as a tie-in with their 2014 comeback effort Skulls N Dust. Recommended fo fans of Ondskapt, Avsky, Dimhymn, Kriegsmachine, Plaag, Gronde, Kaos Sacramentum.
