Popol Vuh Reissues

Updated 04/06/2014: These are all in stock at fusetronsound.com, don’t pass it up again.

It makes me literally *cringe* to think that I have to spend $200 to own these Popol Vuh reissues, but it makes me *cringe* even more to think that I might miss out on them. These are limited to 500 and have been remastered from the original master tapes. Faithful, and expensive, reissues of the first five albums from this one-of-a-kind and influential group. You can currently pick them up at bleep.com. Here’s to hoping they show up slightly cheaper elsewhere.

Popol Vuh - Einsjager and Siebenjager

Popol Vuh - Seligpreisung

Popol Vuh - Hosianna Mantra

Popol Vuh - In Den Garten Pharaos

Popol Vuh - Affenstunde


Bestia Arcana – To Anabainon ek tes Abyssu 2xLP

At last the vinyl edition of Bestia Arcana’s full length is upon us. Those of us who managed to score a cassette a couple of years ago were treated to some finely crafted black metal and incredible, dark atmospheres. An album worthy of a spin on your turntable if ever there was one, pick it up from daemonworship.bandcamp.com.

Thantifaxath – Sacred White Noise LP

Another fantastic black metal release, this one following up a well received cassette EP from Thantifaxath. This Canadian trio brings all the darkness and light of the North straight into your living room. Pick up a pre-order for April 15th from none other than darkdescentrecords.com.

The Body – I Shall Die Here LP

Speaking of The Body… (did you pick up Released From Love yet?)… our more astute readers have surely noticed this recent collaboration between The Body and The Haxan Cloak was released. Could things be any bleaker? This is already sold out at igetrvng.com (well, it has been up for awhile), but you can still snag a copy from experimedia.net and probably plenty of other distros and/or record stores.

The Body - I Shall Die Here LP


Funereal Presence – The Archer Takes Aim LP

This full length from Funereal Presence kind of got passed over during all the hubbub over the new Teitanblood and that’s too bad because The Archer Takes Aim is exactly the kind of blood-freezing black metal you need in your life right now. This is coming to you from Bestial Devotion of Negative Plane, so you don’t just have to take our word for it: quality noise. Pick it up at theajnaoffensive.com or go downstairs and die.

Death – Leprosy LP

I’m not sure how much longer you should wait to pull the trigger on the Relapse-mailorder-exclusive-deluxe-boxset-edition of this essential reissue from Death. At $60 it’s probably not flying off the shelves but once it’s gone you will be kicking yourself for waiting too long to pull the trigger. Of course, you could always pick up the standard or picture disc edition as well. All that and more available right now from relapse.com.

Death - Leprosy LP


Thou / The Body – Released From Love LP

Of course you have to pick this one up. Two of the underground’s heaviest hitters collaborate for a single, vinyl-only release. You are going to want a copy and you can get one at vinylrites.bigcartel.com.

Stream it at invisibleoranges.com.

Thou The Body -Released From Love LP


Om – Pilgrimage LP

Om’s last album as a stripped down duo, before Chris Hakius left the group. The replacement of Chris with Emil Amos saw a fairly major shift in the density of the group’s sound so fans of the original duo may be prone to tout this as their greatest moment. That’s not true, of course, but I do love this album, and it’s been out of print for awhile so if you missed out in 2007 you should grab yourself a copy. Only a handful left at southernlord.com.

Om - Pilgrimage LP


Fennesz – Endless Summer 2xLP

Not exactly breaking the news here but I did not realize this had been recently repressed until I stumbled upon a copy at The Electric Fetus. This album represents a seminal moment in glitch/electronic/ambient/experimental/whatever sound and would, of course, pave the way for later and critically lauded albums like Black Sea (and, of course, the new album coming later this month)! For now, pick this up at experimedia.net or editionsmego.com.
