CD in jewel case. 32-page full color booklet, with William Blake’s paintings, liner notes and track-by-track commentaries.
GOATCRAFT began as a vision of frustration. Occult music had died a crass death, imitated into candy piece fragments of its original vision. Death metal had been absorbed by the insatiable obese monster that is rock music and had lost its spirit of tempestuous power, replaced instead by lite jazz and creeling self-pitying children. Even the rising dark ambient and neoclassical scenes seemed afloat on a river of fast food grease, sweltering in their own indirection.
Deluxe 4-panel digipack, 24-page full color booklet on 170g paper with special Pantone Gold ink.
Limited to 500 copies.
Secretly assembled during the years, MALHKEBRE's "Revelation" is a manifestation of true Death worship in the shape of dissonant, razor-like riffs, cryptic and convoluted structures, tetanus-made melodies, and hysterical vocal invocations preaching the arrival of a new era of Transcendance, Devotion, Chaos, and Spirituality.
MALHKEBRE means true Satanic Resistance, the fist of the Devil in the face of Modern Society.

Quote from label: "Man vs. cosmos, cosmos vs. man; as we explore the antipodes of the universe and its relation to the human condition, inevitably we shall stumble upon something greater than ourselves. Something which stands defiantly beyond language, beyond concepts, beyond the human. Desperately we try to fathom and describe but to no avail. Some call it God, others prefer silence.
TOME OF THE UNREPLENISHED, fully cognizant of this ancient struggle, abandon the fetters of musical convention and knowingly steer into terra incognita. The cosy familiarity of the casual fan is here defaced and denounced by the sheer power of sound. Gone is the uplifting transcendence of this work heretofore, now inverted into a vertiginous descent. In this deluge, sonic experience takes primacy over structure and rhythm, objective determinants of harmony and order give way to subjective sensations of Cosmic revelation.
Make no mistake, the religious connotations are not unintentional: like any other audio-ritual of its ilk, “Cosmoprism: The Theurgy – Act I” acts as a conduit between ourselves, and that preternatural something alluded to earlier. What we get on our side as listeners is merely a hint, a suggestion of a truth both horrifying and yet liberating – all we can do is surrender. And though one might feel lost in the celestial vastness as he embarks on this journey, he may still gaze outwards in anticipation, knowing that the terror is but the first step towards divinity…

ote from label: "“Innerstanding” is the debut full-length album by a mysterious atmospheric black metal project from Cyprus: TOME OF THE UNREPLENISHED. Sole member Hermes used to play bass guitar with the satanic blackmetallers Necrosadist, but with Tome Of Unreplenished he explores the hidden regions of the soul, abandoning himself and the listener to an emotional rollercoaster of transcendental, cosmic beauty.
In Hermes’ own words, TOME OF THE UNREPLENISHED is “An artistic musical project created as a source of self expression and visualization, combined with a soothing yet dismal form of language and execution. The representation of conceptual philosophy, progression, and elevation through sound.”
