Though they’re far from a household name, those in the know have long elevated guitarist Caspar Brötzmann’s avant-rock power trio Massaker to legendary status, with Julian Cope calling them “the trio to end all power trios.” Another fan, Southern Lord owner and one-half of Sunn O))), Greg Anderson, is now trying to gain the group the recognition they deserve. Southern Lord is reissuing all five Massaker albums in 2019 and 2020, starting with their 1988 debut The Tribe and its follow-up, 1989’s Black Axis, both of which were released on January 18. Once Southern Lord completes the series, they will release a special limited edition box set containing all the albums along with a plethora of liner notes and exclusive artwork.
