Fast-rising Italian death metal force FULCI‘s acclaimed sophomore album, “Tropical Sun”, originally saw the light of day in late May 2019 on CD and that first pressing is now completely sold out.
Time To Kill Records is now planning to issue new runs on vinyl and CD. The latter is already available in a striking red jewelcase – named ‘Blood Edition’ – while the LP version will be available in pitch black as well as splatter wax. Both colours will see a simultaneous worldwide release on 6th December 2019.

Recently FULCI premiered the new video “Legion of the Resurrected” at heavily trafficked web-portal No Clean Singing.
“Tropical Sun” is a concept album based on the cult movie “Zombi 2” (1979), one of the masterpieces of legendary director Lucio Fulci. The film tells the story of a Caribbean island cursed by voodoo, whose dead residents rise as zombies to attack the living.
“Tropical Sun is an absolute blast from start to finish, providing enough brutality, riffs, and gore-soaked death metal (with one or two hints of the melodic) that should please any metalhead gorehound”. – Indy Metal Vault
“Superb entertainment for the whole family (assuming you’re the family from “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”), “Tropical Sun” is just the vacation we blood-hounds need right now”. – Blabbermouth
“It’s solid slam death, it has a great theme (classic horror from Lucio Fulci), it has amazing guitars”. – Brutalism
“A nice record that any fan of old-school horror and New York-styled Slam with modern production would like”. – Metal Temple
