More Info

"Thought lost and subsequently forgotten, a complete album by AIH & AIL of ARKTAU EOS and JKV of ZOT-AON was recently rediscovered. This unknown chapter in the evolution of the classic Finnish ritual sound originates from sessions held in May 2005, when Arktau Eos was still unnamed, beginning work on their seminal opus Mirrorion and Zot-Aon had just released the equally influential Star Autopsy CD.

The album retains the original title of the sessions: Ikuisuus nkyy luiden lpi, Finnish for Eternity Shines Through the Bones, and for
purposes of this release the group is named simply ARKTAU AON. Ikuisuus nkyy luiden lpi is enthusiastic, youthfully vigorous and decidedly ominous ritual music with a total running time of 31:53. Instead of songs,
it is divided into different movements or phases: it resembles a field recording of some obscure ceremony from a far-off corner of the world. Boasting a raw but good, clear sound, INLL remains unaltered save for the mastering done in 2013 at Katajan Kaiku studio.

The album will be available in two editions: 289 CDs and 50 cassettes. Both editions will include two hand-finished photo prints (selected
randomly from a set of 32 prints), an insert and silk-screen printed cardboard covers." [label info]
