Release Info: NEKROPOLIS-MUSIK AUS DEM SCHATTENREICH NOW REISSUED ON VINYL ON PURE POP FOR NOW PEOPLE
It's a very rare thing when I choose to hype a new release, but this one needed doing. Revered as a godfather of dark avant prog, the unnerving and balefully beautiful work of German composer and bassist Peter Frohmader has long been championed by us Mutants. Indeed, I've just recently pulled the link down for this very title; one of several by him on Mutant Sounds and perhaps my very favorite out of Frohmader's intimidatingly large discography. And it's been yanked because the same folks at Pure Pop For Now People that were responsible for recently releasing two albums by my band Vas Deferens Organization (Quicksand and our Science Of The Impossible collaboration with Perihelion) have now gone and re-gifted the world with a new and definitive edition of Musik Aus Dem Schattenreich, finally offered up on a proper slab of vinyl after its last incarnation as a mid-90's CD. And a beautifully housed slab it is! For those who are unaware of the sinister majesty of this music, have a listen to the first track, Hölle Im Angesicht Here and if you want a copy, write directly to Joachim at Pure Pop. He's distinctly old-school in approach, so there's no cart system on his site. Just write to him at purepop (at) buissnet (dot) com (the same way you'd go about ordering the new VDO LP on his label) and he'll be happy to hook you up with a copy of this masterpiece.
