Black vinyl edition.
This gatefold double LP set is a redacted version of ALBERICH's indomitable, spirit-crushing opus, NATO-Uniformen, cut from 30 tracks in the original eight-cassette box (limited to 50 copies) to 19 tracks on this version, edited in 2014 for the Trans Industrial Assembly in NYC. Originally deployed in 2010, its bombed-out luster has become a firm favorite of everyone from Blackest Ever Black's KIRAN SANDE to Endangered Species' VEREKR. Between the bludgeoned doom techno of "Skysweeper," the shell-strewn darkwave scenes of "Man is Ready" and the Carpenter-esque adrenalizer, "Immortality Is No Consolation for Death," ALBERICH finds a very specific line through heavy electronics, synth zones and dread techno, and holds it to the last with a shell-shocked, eviscerated aesthetic most unlike any other. Fully remastered and cut at Alchemy.
STILL SEALED IN SHRINKWRAP. If you want this removed from the shrinkwrap please request it in the notes with your order.
