Berne, Switzerland, December 28, 2017: Elusive Sound is very proud to announce the repressing of Show Me A Dinosaur’s sold out self-titled second album on vinyl.
Pre-Orders start Friday, December 29 at 8 PM / 20:00 CET. The release will be on January 19 2018.
It is said that almost every element on Earth was formed at the heart of a star. Our bodies are made of their remnants and massive explosions in the galaxies. Everything we are originates from stardust and it continually floats through us.
We are impermanent. We are nothing more than a pattern or a process yet we are at odds with our self-perception. We choose to complicate life. We design a life of self-inflicted stress, negativity and broken habits. We constantly seek control. We do not accept what is and we do not let go of what was. We lose faith in ourselves and in our journey. There are times we wish our life away.
There is a need for change, a change Show Me A Dinosaur also felt they needed after their critically acclaimed 2011 debut “Evolvent EP” and 2014 dark, brooding masterpiece “Dust”. This genre-defying band, consummate masters at blending post-metal, post-rock, shoegaze and ambient doom, felt an unwavering desire to also explore a far more desperate and harsher black metal sound, to persuade listeners to identify what is truly important to them and shift the focus of their determination. Music that would awaken their decisiveness to fearlessly choose to walk their own path, away from those who hate, who seek only war and require the sacrifice of happiness and self-respect.
This trailblazing Saint Petersburg band, now consisting of Pavel Gorshkov (Guitar), Artem Selyugin (Guitar, Vocals), Anton Gataullin (Bass) and Aleksandr Vershinin (Drums) have evolved into one of the most intense and awe-inspiring bands in Europe. “Show Me A Dinosaur” is a juggernaut of raw emotions and technical prowess, fueled with a sense of urgency, encouraging listeners to follow their bliss and live life to the fullest.
The LP cut at 33rpm from 24bit masters, maintains the stunning full artwork by Andrew Gorshkov but features a new colour scheme for both vinyl and artwork. The new high quality coloured variant named Izmoroz (Hoarfrost) features a combination of A-Side B-Side colours with smoke and splatter and newly colored center labels, while the sleeve received a new arctic blue colour hot-foil and a new flood arctic blue colour on the inside of the gatefold sleeve. The release upholds our quality standards with 180-200g heavy vinyl, heavy paper stock and reverseboard, with a black anti-static innersleeve, an A6 printed inlay and an A7 printed inlay with a handwritten download code.
Izmoroz will be available in two editions, the Izmoroz Edition limited to 220 copies and the Izmoroz Gold Edition, limited to 30 copies and featuring a golden hot-foil and hand numbering on the back. Both variants will be sold via our official label website shop at http://elusive-sound.com/catalog/
