Staff review by
In recent months the focus of Blut Aus Nord's fanbase and outpouring of news has clearly been on the impending final part of the 777 trilogy, Cosmosophy. Even had that not been the case the most ardent fan could have quite easily let this slip by without notice; there was nary a sight nor sound from the label concerning this vinyl-only EP, perhaps at best one Facebook update shortly before its release. Maybe that was Debemur Mortii's plan from the outset; to keep an air of mystery surrounding it. After all, this kind of thing isn't made for more than a smattering of weirdos and audiophiles.

Where can I find a place to buy or download this?

Indeed, unlike the other two chapters this one is virtually unavailable, nor in Debemur Morti or iTunes. Even the Bandcamp is not helpful...

But you can always count on a few youtube leaks

Is it just me, or are the vocal bits (from the quieter moments throughout the EP) taken from Diamanda Galas's "The Litanies of Satan"?

Actually, listening to it again, I'm fairly certain that the bits starting at around 13 minutes are indeed taken from The Litanies.

Yup they are. It's the only thing I didn't really like about this EP, they kinda sound out of place and faux creepy.
The most amazing thing though is that the record has been made in one day, in total improvisation. Just wow.

They better do a re-release of this in CD or Vinyl form, because I can't find it anywhere and I hate listening to it in crappy YouTube quality. I really want to be able to listen to it with decent headphones, or on surround-sound speakers.
