PRE-ORDER: September 17th at 5PM Finnish time (10AM NYC). RELEASE: November 4th. Blood Music will be presenting the sixth album from Russian/Ukrainian underground post-rock/funeral doom masters, Kauan. The album, entitled "Muistumia" (meaning - "Reminiscences"), will see its first time printing on digipack CD and ultra-limited edition 2xLP. Additionally, we will have long-lost copies of the 2xLP first pressing of the band's most well-known album - "Aava Tuulen Maa" that were thought lost into the north of Finland. About "Muistumia": Through Kauan's growth and experimentation, its sound and production has vastly improved since its humble beginnings as a band of teenagers in remote Chelyabinsk, Russia. It was decided while in between labels to privately crowdfund the professional recording of a collection of re-arranged tracks from the band's early years. The band re-recorded six of the main tracks from the albums "Lumikuuro" and "Tietäjän Laulu" in addition to the recording of a brand new song called "Unsoi." The release was intended only for a core group of 53 individuals, but the demand for the release was too high. It is now being presented in a limited run of high-quality digipack editions with official artwork. The closing track / re-recorded version of "Orkidea" can be heard here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISmI4On5eHk Kauan "Muistumia" 2xLP * First-time pressing of Kauan's beautiful 6th album. * 180-gram+ White (250 copies) or Black (150 copies) 2xLP * Mastered specifically for vinyl from the 24-bit original mixes. * Contains two bonus tracks - an early texture sketch, entitled "Nuotio" and the Summoning cover track "Long Lost To Where No Pathway Goes." * 350gsm heavyweight gatefold jacket with reverse-board rough-coated printing. * Black inner sleeves.
