Ardua Music is releasing remastered vinyl editions of Officium Triste’s classic albums »Reason« (2004) and »Giving Yourself Away« (2007), both remastered for vinyl by Greg Chandler (Esoteric).
Started off in the Netherlands back in 1994 after changing the name from Reïncremated, Officium Triste is one of the very few bands from the last century still playing doom death metal the way it must be!
After their successful debut LP »Ne Vivam« (Teutonic Existence Records, 1997) the band became one of the leading European doom death acts when other fellow countrymen were moving to other styles. Four years later, the cult label Displeased released »The Pathway«. No doubt Officium Triste was there to stay and the follow up »Reason« (2004) includes some of the genre’s most classic tracks like »In Pouring Rain« or »The Sun Doesn’t Shine Anymore«.
01. In Pouring Rain
02. The Silent Witness
03. This Inner Twist
04. The Sun Doesn’t Shine Anymore
05. A Flower In Decay
Mid 2021 the band and Ardua Music started discussing a possible vinyl release, which is finally happening this 2023. Remastered for vinyl by Greg Chandler at Priory Recording Studios and supervised by the band.
Limited to 200 copies on gold vinyl. Shipping on late January 2023.
After their successful »Reason« (2004) the bar was set high and years of touring and writing new material would follow before Officium Triste released a new album. Nothing short of amazing would come with »Giving Yourself Away« (Displeased, 2007), from the crushing riffs of the opening »Your Eyes« to the epic closing »Master Of Your Own Demise«, the album shows the band at their best, embracing all ranges of doom metal to make a classic of its own.
01. Your Eyes
02. My Charcoal Heart
04. On The Crossroad Of Souls
05. Inside The Mind
06. Master Of Your Own Demise
The album has been remastered for vinyl by Greg Chandler (Esoteric, Lychgate, Atramentus…) at Priory Recording Studios under the watchful eyes of the band. Finally released by Ardua Music on January 2023.
Limited to 200 copies on red vinyl with insert. Shipping on late January 2023.
