... them prices... not sure why Hospital Productions hasn't re-issued this yet. Seriously one of the best of the year..

Would love to grab this in some other physical form.

The instruments used are incredible sounding and hypnotizing... like sacred tibetan instruments Kangling, and Skull damaru which made from a male and female skull. Highly recommend reading about these while giving the album a listen.

Side note/funny story: My copy of this was stepped on and smashed in the USPS despite double padded envelopes/box Tapes I and III arrived cracked and broken. I contacted Hospital Productions and was refunded as it could not be replaced..Apparently this was a new level of destruction by USPS haha. I had to transfer the magnetic tapes to new generic cassette shells. This had me sweating bullets... but I pulled it off. So there 46 full sets and my ghetto rigged one..

Lussuria responded to me on FB saying "Digital and other release formats will be decided on shortly"

This is an incredible piece of work. Top album of 2015.. hope to see a vinyl re release so more people can hear it.

as with the slightly less ltd "immemorial" selling at 50 bones aftermarket; this one will be a nightmare to watch sell..
hopefully digitally released in the intermediary period of waiting to see when this shows up in a likely reduced form ala "death is unity.." box abridged for wax..
