NIGREDO / ABRA HAD ABRA-split tape(Contaminated Prods-c60)

This Abra Had Abra [Devis G. & Stefano Barban]-(Italy)/Nigredo [Paulo Maldoror & Lucrecia Bosch]-(Portugal)split tape was released on Contaminated Productions in 1992 as a c60. It was a very limited editon of 31 hand-numbered copies as requested by the artists involved. It was only available for trade purposes. No price was listed, but "this tape is NOT for sale" was clearly stated, and Contaminated Prods only traded it with other cassette productions.
It had a special cover made of silver/platicized foil on which there was stapled a piece of dreadlock hair. Inside there was a small piece of x-ray covering (in part)the tape info coming on a fotocopy. You`ll find all this included here as pictures. Enjoy this great production-VERY VERY RARE indeed.

A2 Nigredo - Sol Niger
A3 Nigredo - Obscurari Sidera
A4 Nigredo - Sothis

  1. Wow ! Outstanding post on what it seems to be one of the best ritual-industrial blogs in existence ! I have been searching for early Nigredo stuff for several years. Thanks a lot for this!

    During the late 80es and early 90es the Portugese had one of the most vibrant ritual-industrial scenes around: Putrefactio, Maldoror Tapes, early Croniamantal and Hesskhe Yadalanah. Maybe wel'll see more of that around here ? In any case, I'm keeping a close eye on you.
