Limited, hand-numbered double split CD - 100 copies were made in this edition.
The first edition comes in a special presentation:
The focus is on the masterly illustrated cover by Markus Wolff. CD layout was designed and created by "Fx" (OtSK mastermind) especially for this publication.
This is a black and white drawing constructed as a triptych, a square main part with 2 narrower wings.
In the middle part ... organic-psychedelic lines connect the eternal elements with heaven, earth and abyss. In between, hunters and hunted storming ... a wild rush of animals, mythical creatures and supernatural figures roars and whistles through the picture.
Branches, plants and psychoactive mushrooms are entwined between demonic masks and devilish faces. As if you could watch them grow, the 3 parts of the illustration are meandering.
Left : a confused hallucinogenic ELLI RIEHL fantasy. Creatures in the spiral mist, that appears so often after tea-time, mushrooms or high percentage.
Right : MJÖÐR YLGJAR - the horned creature, half wolf - half warrior, armed with spear and grim armament.
Before the artwork can be seen in full, a banderole with finest parchment paper, which wraps the cover, must be detached. The complex 3-panel digipak can be folded out to the right and left, inside with two transparent CD trays. Special 1-color print on designer cardboard, slightly roughened and of elegant haptics. Inside box will find 3 art print cards, black print on special cardboard from ELLI RIEHL * MJÖÐR YLGJAR * OtSK

MJÖÐR YLGJAR "World of Stone"
:INDO-EUROPEAN RITUAL DOOM INDUSTRIAL:
Still one can smell the scent of incense and cremated bones at the sacral sites of Ancient Europe.
As blood runs from the altars of stone, the ancient hymns to the gods and demons of the past resound from
freezing skies and haunted woods. Four rites of industrial doom have been grimly performed by MJÖÐR YLGJAR.
ELLI RIEHL "Die Kornmuhme"
:ORGANIC DARK DRONES with a healthy dose of gritty PROG-ROCK and a breeze of grim BLACK METAL:
In times of decay and decomposition of modern man's world ELLI RIEHL has returned from the grim, but fair mountains to enrage the spirits in order to foretell the lore of tradition. It is time to recollect, to be vulpine and to ask for metaphysical aid.
Seven brand new incantations, after 10 years of seclusion performed by cultish ELLI RIEHL.
Recorded an mixed in Vínland and Finland 2019.
