In 1999 Avantgarde Music decided to reissue The Second Ring of Power (1994), which had ran out of stocks by then. The original artwork of the album was in condition which did not allow proper reproduction. Therefore, the album cover of the 1999 reissue is different from the original one, though the changes compared to the original were minimal.

The third coming of The Second Ring Of Power happened in 2011 with Peaceville Records, the present owner of release rights to all Unholy albums. According to the band's reissue policy an old VHS-quality bootleg video dating back to autumn 1994 was dug up. After some serious post-production and editing, it came to fit perfectly as bonus material for the reissued second album in DVD-format. Juha Vuorma The Great kindly produced completely new cover art for the reissue, which, however, bears some familiar elements from original cover artwork. So, finally, everything else but the original songs were completely reformed.

Staff review by

One year after their brilliant debut album which was something "From The Shadows", these Finnish avant-garde doomsters managed to return with an even greater effort, the renowned "The Second Ring Of Power", which was released one year after their debut album (1994). Darkness and sorrow start rising once again somewhere from the everlasting night of the Finnish soundscapes, surrounding the world in their impenetrable and suffocating oblivion.

Rating: 9 This is probably my favorite release from Unholy, although all of their albums are so close in quality. One of the best doom bands to ever have existed
