Out on May 17 is the all new Combichrist album “CMBCRST”. The CD edition comes in double-digipak and in addition to the 14 main tracks, it features a full length bonus-CD with 9 exclusive songs. And for the first time ever, Out of Line produces a zoetrope vinyl as well.

A zoetrope vinyl combines the vintage appeal of a traditional record with the optical illusion of a zoetrope, an early animation device. When this special record spins on a turntable, it creates moving images that are visible through specific viewing methods, such as a strobe light or camera shutter. This effect is achieved by printing a series of sequential images along the record’s surface, which, when spun, appear to animate due to the persistence of vision phenomenon. Zoetrope vinyls not only offer a unique listening experience but also add a visual dimension to the music, making them collectible items for enthusiasts of vinyl records and optical illusions alike.

This special vinyl edition contains all 14 main tracks of the new Combichrist new album.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
