2xCD COMPILATION HOUSED IN A LUXURY SIX-PANEL DIGIPACK WITH 8-PAGE BOOKLET! LIMITED TO 460 COPIES WORLDWIDE!!!
"Ouroboros" is a compilation of songs that were originally released only on analog formats throughout the career of Unearthly Trance, as well as a few unreleased songs. There are a couple of recordings on this release that were done in proper studios but most were done with primitive recording gear or in less than ideal environments. The driving force for these non-album tracks was the D.I.Y. spirit which was always a major part of the Unearthly Trance ethos. "Ouroboros" serves as a perfect digital documentation of exactly that idea. The recordings are presented exactly as they were on their original vinyl release and others were slightly equalized to best present a continuous listening experience. Although the intent was made to make it flow, there are obviously some huge contrasts in sound and that is, of course, the characteristic of a compilation encompassing a 12 year career of one-off recordings. From the first track on disc 1 you can hear Unearthly Trance at its most developed and mature to the sonic embryo of the earliest tracks at the end of disc 2. A great collection of grieving songs that will slowly shed your skin note after note. Mandatory for fans of Neurosis, Serpentine Path, Grief, Dystopia and Celtic Frost.
