Within the Depths of Silence and Phormations (2LP, Opaque Silver)

*Limited edition of 200 copies.* "Within the Depths of Silence and Phormations takes the listener deep below the world of the ordinary into the catacombs of the subconscious, the worlds lying within us so few ever live to explore. This is music meant to stimulate the mind, to inspire one in their explorations of self and solitude. Layers of ethereal atmospheres and the collage of choirs, strings, bells and occasional voices slowly bleed together to create music for society whose spirituality has been rendered impotent. Soaking in this world, one is left with the impression of overwhelming sadness and profound desolation. This is the sound of all hope nullified.

Within the Depths of Silence and Phormations is an expedition into the hidden parts of the inner self and is bridging feelings of deep melancholy to blessful joy as it seeks for the true essence of human existence. Original released in 1995 by Cold Meat Industry the album has now been restorded, re-recorded and mixed to render the modern standard of sound quality still maintaining the perfect balance between subtle and harsh, dark and pure of the original mix. Within the Depths of Silence and Phormations is accompanied by a second disc bringing tracks from various compilations from the period together to form a strong twin album. A unity with double joy: wallow in the melancholy! The album comes in a 6-panel digipak with awesome photos by Martín Pels. Mastered according to the K-14 level standard."
