We’re glad to at last present the reissues of the first 2 KARJALAN SISSIT albums!
Both housed in tall gatefold formats with bonus tracks.
Also, we’re now taking pre-orders for the upcoming MULM “The End Of Greatness” CD (40th Cycle), a superb joint venture featuring Norwegians Northaunt, Avsky and Taphephobia.
KARJALAN SISSIT “Karjalan Sissit” CD / Digital (36th Cycle)
The 2001 debut album by the legendary Karjalan Sissit, originally released on Cold Spring, is now available again with completely redesigned artwork and 2 additional tracks. This gem laid the foundations of Karjalan’s unique sound of massive orchestral arrangements and pounding percussion. A bombastic yet solemn album that laid the ground for a whole scene with it’s hard hitting Martial / Industrial anthems. We’re honored to present once again this lost classic celebrating Karjalan Sissit’s 10th year anniversary.
Edition of 500 copies in A5 Gatefold Sleeve. 12 Tracks. Running Time 47:40
KARJALAN SISSIT “Miserere” CD (37th Cycle)
Re issue of the second album by Karjalan Sissit, originally release in 2002 on CMI, with completely redesigned artwork and 2 additional tracks. A close follow up to their 2001 self tilted debut. Blending unsettling string arrangements and ambient passages with thundering percussion and screeching vocal passages, this second installment in the Karjalan Sissit discography definitely deserves to be made available again and be rediscovered. Hate, humor and disintegration really have established themselves as the essential elements fueling this unique project.
Edition of 500 copies in A5 Gatefold Sleeve. 11 Tracks. Running Time 49:30
MULM “The End of Greatness” CD (40th Cycle)
“The End of Greatness” combines the talents of 3 of Norway’s most respected Ambient acts, namely Northaunt, Avsky and Taphephobia. After a few years of collaborative work, we are presented with a very special joint project, where each members brought their own approach to atmospheric sound creation into a cohesive, mesmerizing whole. Each drawing inspiration from personal experiences to present their common view of the world, these observations were instinctively translated in the form of 6 dreamy and utterly bleak ambient compositions where guitar drones merge flawlessly with abstract soundscapes, all with a distinctive northern touch. The music comes accompanied by a carefully chosen collection of monochrome photographs giving a glimpse into a seemingly depopulated world, where some are still searching yet where all seems lost.
Edition of 500 copies in gatefold textured digi sleeve with 12 pages booklet. 6 Tracks.
