Superb re-mastering, excellent replica of the original cover (including large size poster art). Great job by Dark Entries label!

Borghesia is an electronic music group from Ljubljana, Slovenia, created in 1982 by Aldo Ivancic and Dario Seraval who were members of the alternative theater troupe FV-112/15. Along with Laibach, Borghesia is the most successful band from the territory of former Yugoslavia who launched the activist movement and managed to turn sexual freedom into an important political issue by creating the New Slovenian Art scene. After two cassette-only releases the band recorded their debut vinyl LP "Ljubav Je Hladnija Od Smrti" ("Love Is Colder Than Death") during the winter of 1983-84. The band was eager to use early sampling techniques to construct tracks from cut up radio noises and movie dialogue. They developed their own brand of EBM (Electronic Body Music) that combined symphonic synthesizers (Korg PolySix), funky basslines, military drum beats (Roland TR-808) and harsh, crisp sequenced rhythms that repeat in trance-like loops (Roland TB-303). All songs from "Ljubav Je Hladnija Od Smrti" were all sung/recited in Croatian and used the imagery of the prohibited, tabooed and repressed. Equal parts Chris and Cosey, Cabaret Voltaire, Art of Noise and Rainer Werner Fassbinder.
All tracks have been remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studio in Berkeley. Pressed on blood red vinyl, each disc is manufactured with its own unique pattern: no two discs are identical. Each LP is housed in an exact replica of the original 6-panel fold out poster with lyrics and photos. Limited to 1000 hand-numbered copies.
