Caustic Records and Musica Maxica peresents the vinyl version of its newest album “Nameless Sun” limited to 300 copies. This work explores otherworldly terrain where loss and mourning give way to the vast distances of interstellar space while personal esoteric reflection is eclipsed by the violence of stellar nuclear fusion. “Nameless sun” offer us “richly evocative dark folk style makes for a head-in-hand listening experience. Yes it’s dark and minimal, evoking solitude and loneliness but also magic and mesmerizing, soothing and restorative” (Vanessa Salvia, Invisible Oranges).
Aerial Ruin “soothing acoustic folk often sounds like a sun-dappled blend of Agalloch, Nechowen and Pink Floyd” (Kim Kelly, Noisey/Vice)
DARK, PSYCHEDELIC AND EMOTIONAL
The much-anticipated fifth album of the band constitutes almost a leap of faith. The different emotions that tear the human heart: friendship, violence, intolerance, hope.. seem to perfectly melt with every single electronic rhythm that Culture Kultür subdue to each song. Mid tempos, instrumental pieces, lyrics that will make you cry and of course catchy melodies to dance, because tragedy, my friends, tragedy is something you can dance to.
First time for Corde Oblique on vinyl, and first remix for the band! Two unreleased songs: "Itri" was only released in digital, but the Vinyl format gives the chance to listen to the song in the best way ever, featuring the band's main vocalist Annalisa Madonna.
The other song "I Sassi di Matera" is an exclusive remix made by the producer Salvio Vassallo using fragments of recordings the original version's instruments, included in the album "I Maestri del Colore" and featuring the Denitza Seraphim, singer from Irfan.
Songs are very evocative, they are inspired by two medieval towns of southern italy. The title "Mille anni che sto qui" (in english: "I have been living here for a thousand of years") is from a novel by Mariolina Venezia that has been a big inspiration for the composer Riccardo Prencipe, in his songs southern Italy is conceived like a wild-talented woman.
On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the band's formation, Caustic Records releases this exclusive edition limited to 300 copies, presented in a luxurious collector's box that includes the band's first three albums, booklet and a commemorative metallic pin with Der Blaue Reiter logo.
In addition to everything mentioned previously, the edition has five additional tracks, with parts from old demos, as well as other songs never edited to date, making this edition a true gem for fans of the band. 30 minutes of exclusive extra material !!!!
The first album "Le Paradise Funebre .... L'envers de la Tristesse "has been sold out for years and is a desired collectors item. The laters " Silencis "and" Nuclear sun "are equally sold out, so this will be the last chance to have these first three works in physical format, presented in this new apocalyptic edition, which will surely mark the end of our days ...
