This release calls for a very laconic word, actually, it speaks for itself.
"IRM Oedipus Dethroned / An Act of Self Mutilation Is an Act of Freedom" box containing two golden discs is the pearl of the global post industrial.
Re-released after being fully sold-out here finally comes the cult album "Oedipus Dethroned".
Disturbingly massive, crushing and oppressive Erik Jarl's analogous loops and rhythms combined with uncompromising vocals and poetry of Martin Bladh create shockingly ruthless and naked idea of deliverance through unbearable suffering.
The tortured body in all its most hideous conditions turns into an instrument for revealing the true nature of being and surpassing its limitations.
Very elegant, valuable package and a new booklet with Martin Bladh's collages.
