Official Abigor patches
Temporal Dimensions approached us in early 2022. During the past two years, we made them producing several mock-ups and prototypes, again and again tweaking the difficult designs. Their patience paid off, the result is absolutely satisfying now and looks impressive in natura.
Here´s the set of 4:
Abigor logo (gold)
Leytmotif Luzifer (black & gold border)
Höllenzwang (white & black border)
Totschläger (bronze & black border)
Taphonomia Aeternitatis - Gesänge im Leichenlicht der Welt
ABIGOR´s new album, crowning the band´s 30th year of existence, is in the pressing plant and will be released as announced below.
Before that "Apokalypse" will get its first ever stand-alone vinyl release, with embossed cover and some limited merchandise featuring the original 1997 design.
Regular news concerning the above and much more will follow.
1990s REISSUE COMPLETE
Here´s the second batch of 90s albums: Opus IV, Apokalypse & Supreme Immortal Art, to complete the 6 CDs recorded at Hörnix between 1994 and 1998 by PK, Silenius & TT.
Also available is a slipcase to collect all 6 recordings, and by that, finally the loyal CD buyers have their version of the LP box released many years ago. The sound has been carefully restored and if necessary slightly corrected, but kept as original as possible, without any attempt to match those modern BM releases which all sound the same. We also have spent years to collect all the original bits necessary for the layout, which has been meticulously rebuilt from the original photos, books, bits and snippets, like back in the 90s.
The quality surpasses the old releases, also the lyrics can now be read.

while all 6 can be listened to via our bandcamp page:
SUPREME IMMORTAL ART (deluxe double album version)
LP 1 - Supreme Immortal Art, original version, 1998
LP 2 - Supreme Immortal Art, raw instrumental version, november 1997
Over the past 25 years, SIA has been an album we deemed slightly problematic. But the more time has passed, the more we made peace and identified with it, as work that was right at the time. After Apokalypse, this was the logical other extreme, a bombastic album, with keyboards as the defining element. Yet, this is just one side of the coin.
LP 2 features a version which has in parts surfaced here and there, sourcing from an old cassette. A year ago, PK found the original, superior quality CD-R, which we took home after the first few studiodays back in november 1997, for Silenius to rehearse and to see what should be overdubbed guitar-wise.
Unmixed, with random fader settings on the mixing desk, on the evening of the third recording day. Still, this old Hörnix-Studio CD-R turned out as a valid historic document 25 years later, and worth to be released. With a few surprises – like an unedited, long ending part of a song with 2 more riffs, missing on the finished album.
Side C and D, pressed in the order of original recording, shows the nucleus and the essence of Supreme Immortal Art and ABIGOR 1997. We approached recordings back then just as we did on the demos – still an immature and not „professionally trimmed“ band, everything done on the spur of the moment. Not elaborate and sophisticated, but rough and in retrospect, sloppy. But for us, it still was the magical years, full of „that energy“, although the dawning of a golden period´s end. Ravel in nostalgia, for this is a genuine artefact of a sunken era!
