Documenting The (Tangled, Radiant) Process 5

Hot on the heels of Nadja’s latest full-length album, Queller, we’re announcing the release of a limited 7-inch, Tangled, a collection of industrial / grindcore / death-metal (or whatever) songs. Stream one of the tracks here:

The 7″ comes on black vinyl in a hand-assembled vellum sleeve and will primarily only be available from us at upcoming shows, with a limited few from the Broken Spine Webshop and maybe a select few record shops/mailorders that we like.

For something more widely and readily available, we will also be reissuing a CD version of our 2007 album Radiance Of Shadows, originally released by Alien8 Recordings and out of print for some time. The reissue comes in a digisleeve package with new photography from Guylaine Bédard, who also provided the original cover image:

We will also have copies of the CD at upcoming shows, but it will be officially released and distributed worldwide in May, though it is already digitally available here:
