Preorder: Nordland LP in two different
Nordland LP will be released in two individually designed versions
on June 4, 2021. Preorder starts on April 2
Both LP versions are limited to 100 copies each
and printed on heavy, matt varnished cardboard with printed
LP-sized insert and brown poly-lined innersleeve. The music was
remastered for this vinyl release and is the same on both designs.
The two versions differ in the cover
design and the vinyl colour:
First we have
the iconic design from the year 2000 that was adapted for this LP
version. It shows the full beauty of the original artwork designed
by my friend Ingo of @spielsinn.design. The LP is made of
translucent yellow/black marbeled vinyl.
cover artwork was done by myself recently to open a new lifecycle
for Nordland. The Elhaz stick you see on the frontcover is the
very same stick that casted the shadow on the 2000 cover... This
LP is made of clear/black marbeled vinyl.
We will offer
a limited amount of this already very limited release as a special
"collector's bundle". This includes both LP versions and a signed
CD of the 2011 remaster with bonustrack. So you get all three
different Nordland artworks at the same time.
restocked on all other available CDs and LPs - even the
Bannwald-LP. You are welcome to place your order from next Friday,
April 2, at the
Apoptose Bandcamp shop.
Even overseas shipping is possible
again although it may take some weeks until the parcel reaches you
Bannwald LP available from July 3, 2020
years after its first appearance the Bannwald album is still going
strong. To celebrate the jubilee Tesco and Apoptose release it for
the first time on LP: the spotvarnished gatefold cover gives the
iconic artwork a new an exceptional appearance. The 300 LPs are
pressed on brown-smoked vinyl.

edition with exclusive insert (lim. 49 copies) only available at
Apoptose Bandcamp shop.
The "forgotten twin" of Schattenmädchen

minimalistic and hard to find - compilation tracks that were the
basis of Schattenmädchen in 2007. This collection features also
different versions of the exclusive Schattenmädchen album tracks.
Brandnew and only here you find "Als es vor 49 Tagen begann",
a coronaviral edit of "Karla". In 2007 Karla delivered a
