**2020 stock** "Transformation is the key to the psyche. It unlocks the hidden domains inside us and finds the paths to inner wisdom. Metamorphyses is a journey into the deep inner self; a drama of the sublime and trancendental transformation of the psyche through a katabasis ritual presented in six transitional stages slowly moving towards completion. Metamorphyses is the key to the psyche."

Hypnotic, introspective and yet more difficult. Being the seventh full-lenght album from Raison d’être, Metamorphyses is in many aspects different from previous works by Peter Andersson. The organic flow and the use of drones has been extended, creating a varied output of both calm/meditative and harsh/intense sound structures. The transformation in sound is also present in the perceived emotions. Demanding, tempting and deceptive are only a few elements that characterize the ordeal the listener has to withstand. The expanded double CD edition of Metamorphyses contains the original album remastered according to the K-14 level standard. Additonally, two previosuly unreleased early sketches from the Metamorphyses session has been added to the first disc. The second disc contains a selection of previously unreleased live recordings from performances made between 2006-2008 in Sofia, Gent, Salzburg, Alkmaar and Budapest. Comes in a 6-panel digipak with original art by Kati Astraeir.
