SKU: 12770 Category:


FIRST TIME ON VINYL! “Within the Depths of Silence and Phormations” takes the listener deep below the world of the ordinary and into the catacombs of the subconscious, a world laying within each of us, yet so rarely explored. This is music meant to stimulate the mind and inspire exploration 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 blissful joy as it seeks to find the true essence of human existence.

Originally released in 1995 by Cold Meat Industry, the album has now been restored, re-recorded and mixed to render the modern standard of sound quality while preserving its balance between subtle and harsh, dark and pure of the original mix. “Within the Depths of Silence and Phormations” is accompanied with a second disc bringing tracks from various compilations from the period together to form a strong second album. A unity with double joy: Wallow in the melancholy! Limited to 300 copies.
