"EXPOSURES - In retrospect and denial": Double CD released on the 24th of May

"Exposures - In Retrospect And Denial"

Dark Tranquillity celebrates its 15th birthday by releasing a double CD featuring rare and previously unreleased material.

For many years, we've received lots of questions regarding the possibility of our pre-album material ever being released on CD, and we're very happy to provide old and new fans that are interested in the first chapter of our history with a viable alternative to forking out a small fortune on Ebay for a worn-out original copy of the demo or 7" EP.

After a lot of digging though the vaults, the original DAT tapes for our "Trail Of Life Decayed" demo (1991) and "A Moonclad Reflection" EP (1992) were found, and we could happily note that they were intact and had survived the ten years in limbo remarkably well. With the help of some carefully executed mastering magic, the sound quality has been boosted a great deal.

In addition, we have the pleasure of including a couple of songs that were recorded during the studio sessions for our last three albums. Some of these tracks, like "Exposure" and "Cornered", have until now only been available on limited edition versions of the albums, while some others, like "Static", "No One" and "In Sight", are previously unheard by anyone outside the immediate band circle.

As a special treat, we're also including a second disc with more than 70 minutes of live songs (the audio portion of the recently released "Live Damage" DVD. Enjoy!

"Exposures..." comes packaged with an extensive 20-page booklet filled to the rim with exclusive photos from all stages of the band's career as well as liner notes from noted music journalist Chris Dick (www.digitalmetal.com), a initiated long-time observer of the scene.

The release dates for "Exposures…" will be May 24 (Europe) and June 15th (USA), and the 2-CD will be released for the fair deal of a Single-Disc price.

"Exposures - In Retrospect And Denial" 2-CD full track listing:

DISC 1

01. Static
02. The Poison Well
03. Misery In Me
04. Cornered
05. In Sight
06. No-One
07. Exposure
08. Yesterworld
09. Unfurled By Dawn
10. Midwinter/Beyond Enlightenment
11. Vernal Awakening
12. Void Of Tranquillity

DISC 2:

01. The Wonders At Your Feet
02. The Treason Wall
03. Hedon
04. White Noise/Black Silence
05. Haven
06. Punish My Heaven
07. Monochromatic Stains
08. Indifferent Suns
09. Format C: For Cortex
10. Insanity's Crescendo
11. Hours Passed In Exile
12. The Sun Fired Blanks
13. Damage Done
14. Lethe
15. Not Built To Last
16. ThereIn
17. Zodijackyl Light
18. Final Resistance
19. Ex Nihilo

EDIT - release date changed to May 24 for Europe and June 15 for the US.

and as this is now the new official dark tranquillity release, it deserves sticky status and a link in the rules thread instead of the damage done live dvd. if anyone has questions about it, i'll try to answer unless they're too personal and x-rated.

static --> outtake from damage done

in sight --> outtake from haven

no one --> outtake from projector

misery in me --> studio version dating back to haven era.

Awesome stuff
To Niklas, and the rest of the band, this is a great thing you're doing for your fans, you should be proud.

Rahvin, questions:

1. Do you have any idea what the photos are? Are they unseen promo pics, recording studio pics, or a combination of both?

2. Are you sure this beats the manowar thread?

3. How does this relate to pineapples?

1. many different sources. some of them have been seen before on magazines or promos, while others are totally new for the fans, featuring shots from tours, the band drinking in bars, just whatever looked good at the moment.

2. this is not the right strategy to make me pose in the nude, ben.

3. you're gonna love this new dark tranquillity release more than you have ever loved pineapples.

And I was just thinking how sad it was that I wouldn't have any new albums to buy during the first half of 2004... This should be interesting! And I absolutely love the low price

1. Brilliant, more inclination for me to go to Tuska to thank them personally

2. What WILL work? Honestly, it's like you don't want my attention

3. Then it MUST be good (pre-orders)

Again, a huge thank you to the band

@ben: personal and x-rated, sorry

@delirious: before becoming dark tranquillity, dark tranquillity were called septic broiler and did record a demotape, enfeebled earth.

btw, check www.darktranquillity.com for a close-up of (part of) the cd cover staring right back at you from the main page.

oh. I knew they released a demo as septic broiler, but the title never stuck. it would have been a nice thing to include to complete the discography, but we´ll just have to try to get along with what we´re offered. which shouldn´t be too hard.

and it looks promising indeed. the cover, that is.

Finally a release date! Now, let's just hope it won't get postponed for any possible reason.

Well, I'd like to think my dozens of emails (and violent threats, letter-bombs, etc.) to both the band and CM had any effect in Exposures becoming reality, but I guess the only ones you really can thank are the band-members themselves (well, duh!) and the people at CM (yep, they really can make the right decisions - occasionally at least).

This is indeed the best news this far this year!

Anja: Dunno about the "eternal" part, but yes, if that happens, I feel most honoured.
