Reissue (June 2011) with two live bonus tracks. The two live bonus tracks on the Rapture reissue album are actually from the year 1999, but since few people have ever heard Unholy playing live, it felt right to add a couple of live songs as bonus. Also cover arts have been worked quite a bit, and the album is wrapped in super jewel case box like other Peaceville reissues, too. A line-up for live bonus tracks is: Pasi Äijö: vocals & bass, Ismo Toivonen: guitar, Jade Vanhala: guitar, Veera Muhli: keyboards, Jan Kuhanen: drums.

Staff review by
If you are an adorer of the 90s doom metal scene there is NO way that you won't remain stunned, speechless and doomed by one of the most unique and personal doom metal acts that were born "into cold light", Unholy. The impressive part of the story is the fact that you can't characterize them as doom/death, funeral doom or whatever. Why? Simply because the elements they incorporate in their sound are so many and complex that won't let you find the ideal description for their music. But this doesn't matter at all because it's the music that matters, not the label.

Different than the first two albums but still one of the best death doom I've ever heard. God how I love this band
