Originally released in 2002, Rwake‘s Hell is a Door to the Sun is a fucking monster of an album.

If, like me, you came aboard the good ship Rwake with 2004′s If You Walk Before You Crawl, You Crawl Before You Die, or after, you really should hear this:

Rwake‘s Hell is a Door to the Sun will be out on Relapse March 1, 2011. More info and pre-orders here.
