HELTER SKELTER PRODUCTIONS (distributed & marketed by REGAIN RECORDS) is proud to reissue MEPHISTOFELES’ classic second album, I’m Heroin, on vinyl LP format.
One of the cultest names in the underground, MEPHISTOFELES hail from Argentina and have prolifically perfected a literally addicting blend of garage rock, stoner doom, and ritual atmosphere that truly puts the SATANIC in Satanic panic! From 2013 onward, this power-trio have been pumping out one sonic drug after another, from singles and demos to EPs and even live albums, all culminating in three full-lengths to date. And now, longtime fans HELTER SKELTER PRODUCTIONS will be reissuing parts of MEPHISTOFELES’ back catalog as well as some new recordings.
The first of these reissues, I’m Heroin was originally released in 2017 but in extremely limited quantities. MEPHISTOFELES have always had a knack for compelling(ly lurid) record titles, and I’m Heroin is no exception: both phonetically and visually in its original incarnation of ( ( ( I ‘ M H E R O I N ) ) ), it conveys the sense of delirium and madness written large across the grooves of this nearly 47-minute work. Indeed, MEPHISTOFELES’ second long-player goes all in on getting gone – hypnotic yet loose, jammy yet locked-in, devilishly drugged-out and above all FUN in its freedom. Minutes turn into hours, hours turn into days, days turn into weeks, ad infinitum…being stuck inside I’m Heroin is like being stuck inside a jellied coma you never wanna come out of!
