Cassette cover.
PLEASE NOTE: The CDr version is available NOW; the cassette version is available for preorder.  I expect the cassettes to be in stock and shipping early January 2016.

Monstrous, dense, crushing wall release from the mighty Phantom Cadaver, one of the genre's true modern pillars.  Those in the know are well aware of the project's utter mastery of HNW form; across a bevy of self-released albums, Phantom Cadaver has demonstrated just how flattening, detailed, destructive, and transcendent/transformative HNW can be when in the hands of a skilled practitioner.  I am very happy to be unveiling this new, massive piece (66 minutes!) from the project; without going too much into hyperbole, I'll simply say that this is some serious shit.  If you're into black hole gravity style HNW, then you absolutely need this record.  The cover art should tell you all you need to know about the record's inspiration, and once you throw this on and isolate yourself with darkness and headphones, you will feel its oppressive weight.  In the best possible way.
Released in two formats: as a CDr, with the piece unbroken, and as a C68, with the piece split into two sections.  I don't often do dual format releases at AOW, but this one deserves it.  Both the CDr and the cassette have different artwork.  Each format is released in a limited edition of 10 hand-numbered copies.
