Out now via Cyclic Law is the latest album by Swedish dark ambient act Raison d’Être, “Alchymeia”.

The new album has 4 tracks spread over more than 71 minutes: “Nigredo”, “Albedo”, “Citrinitas” and “Rubedo”.
“Alchymeia” is the follow-up of the 2014 album “Mise en Abyme”. This release also marks the first time a Raison d’Être album is available on vinyl. The vinyl 2LP comes in a gatefold sleeve with matt lamination and is limited to only 200 copies – orders can be placed here.
Next to the vinyl, there’s also a CD in 6 panel digisleeve with matt lamination limited to 500 copies – orders can be placed here.

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.
