More Info

"Mammoth stone walls stretching high into the unknown, dank cellars stewn with bones and ashes. A chill in the lonely night wind disturbed by the utterance of arcane phrases. This is music guaranteed to at least bring about thoughts of mysticism, if it doesn't produce mystical states outright. This defines the term hauntingly beautiful. In Sadness, Silence And Solitude, first released in 1997, is the fourth full length album of raison d'tre and is yet another astonishing dark ambient industrial masterpiece. This time, In Sadness, Silence an Solitude has been considerably expanded with bonus material and made it into a double disc set featuring a bunch of unique, previously unreleased compositions, live material and compilation tracks; everything connected to the same period of time of the original album. In addition, an ultra-limited special expanded edition with a bonus 7" vinyl is released containig new deconstructed versions of two tracks from the original album. In Sadness, Silence And Solitude (expanded edition) is released on the newly formed label Retortae and has been carefully mastered according to the K-14 level standard for highest possible sound quality. The disc set comes in a 6-panel cardboard sleeve with freshly designed artwork, just as ultimately beautiful as the music, almost to the point of being indescribable; one must experience it to fully comprehend."
