REDISCOVERED (33rd° series)
The current remastered version exhibits the original studio albums in a new sound! By applying the most up-date studio technology alongside the original sound equipment the primary focus remained firmly on the best possible re-creation of the original recordings and thus resulting in the most authentic match for the sound quality which has distinguished this music since its original publication. Songs were carefully re-mixed, partly re-recorded, tracklists reconsidered and rearranged; each album was brought to perfection which truly deserves the honorary addition 33° - for the highest achievable degree of perfection. The 33rd° series comes along in a beautiful matt finished digi pack, including a booklet with all lyrics.

Returning from the core of the Underworld, "Hypogeum (II)" hits straighter and darker than ever before imagined by offering you another brainwashing journey into the forgotten fields of the Megalithic culture. "Hypogeum (II)" is without any doubt the album destined to be seated forever on the throne of classic dark GOTH. An album to please the elder gods with real dark pearls, almost every part of it appears to be intend on generating a more intense atmosphere. When listening to the album you feel like being in a movie theatre. Could it be that there was once a single, highly-advanced group of men that virtually kick-started the world. After the very good success of LIB.1 and the accompanying ‘BODY OF LIGHT EP’, ex-Garden of Delight, ex-Lutherion MERCIFUL NUNS succeed to deliver a follow-up, that convinces from first listening.
