Sopor Aeternus & the Ensemble of Shadows's "Dead Lovers' Sarabande" (Face One + Face Two) re-released as a VERY limited 2x 2LP vinyl set - get your copy now

Out in the next few days are the re-releases on vinyl of the 1999 releases “Dead Lovers’ Sarabande” (Face One) and “Dead Lovers’ Sarabande” (Face Two) by Sopor Aeternus & the Ensemble of Shadows. They were respectively the 4th and 5th album by the darkwave band Sopor Aeternus & the Ensemble of Shadows and formed the first concept albums by the band. The albums detail the mourning of a lover who has recently passed.

This new edition is a stripped-down one version, holding no gatefold-covers, posters or signatures. They come with a simple cover, and on classic black vinyl in 180gram audiophile quality with printed inner sleeves. While not adding anything new, Anna-Varney Cantodea, however, had the original negatives re-scanned in high resolution and re-created the artwork. Also the audio has been re-mastered especially for these vinyl re-releases.

Note that the reissues come strictly limited to 500 copies world-wide. You can order the first part right here, the second part right here. Highly recommended!

Sopor Aeternus is reportedly working on an all new album, we’ll keep you posted.
