Raison D'Etre : In Sadness, Silence and Solitude -
Re-release of the classic 1997 album with LOTS of bonus-material! Hauntingly beautiful, "In Sadness..." was the 4th album of raison d'être and is yet another astonishing dark ambient industrial masterpiece. The album 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. 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!Tracks CD1: 01 Reflecting in Shadows 02 In Absence of Light 03 The Well of Sadness 04 Deep enshrouded 05 Falling Twilight 06 Passing inner Shields 07 Reflecting in Shadows (Live Mannheim 2004) 08 Passing inner Shields (Live Stockholm 2004) 09 Drop of Crystal - Tracks 01-06 original CD CMI 1997. 07-08 re-issue 2006 CMI. 09 unreleasedCD2: 01 The Verge of Somnolence 02 Procession 03 Forgotten Mound 04 Mantra 05 Reflections 06 A Thousand Eyes 07 Through an Arcane Passage (Live ? 1997) 08 Reflecting in Shadows (Live Erlangen 1996) 09 In Absence of Light (Live Erlangen 1996) 10 Ba-umf (Live Erlangen 1996) 11 The Well of Sadness (Live Erlangen 1996) 12 Deep enshrouded (Live Erlangen 1996) 13 Passing inner Shields (Early Sketch) - Track 01 from 'The Absolute Supper' CMI 1997. 02+03 from 'Funeral Songs' Crowd Control Activities 2001, 04-06 previously unreleased, mixed in 2013.
