As befits the album’s twentieth anniversary, Sol Invictus‘ “The Killing Tide” is going to be re-released in a re-worked and extended edition on October 7th, 2011. This new edition will be enhanced by seven bonus tracks: in addition to an old DAT recording of “The World Turns” and a version of “Somewhere In Europe” that was originally released on the Shock 7″, you will also find five live recordings from Sol Invictus’ concert at Frankfurt’s Sound Depot back in 1991.
The second Sol Invictus re-release from Auerbach Tonträger this October is “The Blade” which was originally released back in 1997 and has been deleted for a long time. This work is considered as one of Sol Invictus’ greatest albums by many fans, and apart from the original album, this new edition comes with four bonus tracks: “Time To Meet The King”, which was first released on “In Europa” but originated in times of “The Blade”; an early mix of “Nothing Here & Remember And Forget”; an originally discarded version of “Only I Know”; plus an unreleased version of “In God We Trust.”
Both albums will be released in portrait digipak format, feature new artworks as well as liner notes by Tony Wakeford, and will each be limited to 700 copies only.
