Title on spine: Aspera Hiems Symfonia, Constellation and My Angel

© 2002 Displeased records

The original masters were re-visited for this release. They were in terrible shape, so we enhanced their voices slightly (some previously unheard) and did our best to clothe them properly. Their bodies remain the same. We made no attempt, however tempting, to change them. We heard: "Blasphemy"! C9 and C10 culled from the same masters, but never displayed before, as they were at the time (still are) considered prospects.
For your amusement only.

Track A1 - B8: originally released as the 'Aspera hiems symfonia' CD, Misanthropy records, UK 1996.
