Out via Apocalyptic Vision on December 21st is the all new Sopor Aeternus album “The Rules”.

The full-length album is part 3 of the current Sopor Aeternus trilogy, which is based on an actual boardgame. Like part 1 (“Alone At Sam’s – An Evening with…”) and part 2 (“The Colours”), “The Rules” was also recorded and produced at TidalWave Studios and is part of a larger total work of art.

“The Rules” will be available in two editions, a double LP one and on CD.

The 2LP comes in a limited 2×12″ screen printed vinyl edition combined with screenprint. The screenprint on side D comes with the special colour ‘Halloween orange’. The vinyls will be 180 gram, super-audiophile high quality discs with black inner sleeve with antistatic lining and a gatefold sleeve. The copies are hand-numbered by Anna-Varney Cantodea. The 2LP version is limited to 500 copies worldwide.

The transparent jewelcase CD edition comes with a 16-page lyric booklet and holds the same tracks as on the limited vinyl edition.

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.
