Attention, last 10 copys, Vinyl and innersleeve are top. Outersleeve has minor bend on one edge!
Accompanied by the monotonous rhythm of a ritual drum, two old funerary violinist are pacing slowly through the darkness towards the black hole of a freshly opened grave...
With the single 'IMHOTEP' (originally a special bonustrack only available for fans) Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble Of Shadows are attending to a chapter from their 2004 album 'La Chambre d'Echo' and use this radical revision to transform an almost entirely electronic song into a dramatic, chamber-music danse macabre.
Reduced to the bare bones, only accompanied by percussion, a death-bell and two string-players, the fabulously eerie Saint-Varney-of-the-Dead is singing a sad lament of suffering and pain, and demonstrates once again that Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble Of Shadows are still entirely beyond comparison.This limited vinyl edition includes:
- classy black 12" vinyl (160g) in cardboard box
