Taranis – Faust Picture LP


In stock

Categories: ,


Taranis and Urtod Void have signed a covenant on the 30th anniversary of “Faust”, to seal an exceptional reissue of this legendary album. After the mysterious end of the band, many questions remained unanswered. Aside from what exactly was responsible for the ending (at this point we would recommend the book “Rzeźpospolita” by Piotr Dorosiński, you will definitely find some answers to your questions there), many are wondering when Faust will receive its well-deserved reissue. For everyone who is not familiar with this album, prepare for a somewhat more developed work, even a concept album that is divided into two parts (plays). These two parts “Waltz Mephistoph” and “Balneum Diaboli” are about a psychodramatic act with Faust and Mephisto, which was presented just too brilliantly by the band, not only musically but also lyrically and artistically. But convince yourself…

“Faust” is available as wooden box, as regular edition in 3 different vinyl colors, and as A5 mediabook CD.  Here you are ordering the picture vinyl edition.

-A gatefold sleeve with silver hotfoil embossing
