ABIGOR - 6 LP box
PK - SILENIUS - TT
the complete Hörnix recordings





Like these old ads pictured above indicate, after over a year of negotiation and preparation, we can finally announce a vinyl box - presented in a form we have desired for a long time:
all the ´classic´ 90s recordings at Hörnix will be released as 6 LP set.
First of all, apologies to the loyal supporters who bought the various LP versions released between 2005 (Verwüstung) and 2011 (Opus IV). But ever since, we wanted to present something in original artwork and best possible quality.
This hasn´t been possible due to the original layout films all being lost (at first). So we initially chose to do something ´based on the original works´. We were approached by several labels to (re)print the old recordings again, who suggested to create artworks from the CD scans or the like - but we took the emergency brake, this would have been unacceptable. And in october 2013, we could persuade Soulseller Records, who bought the licenses from Napalm, not to do individual releases but rather a 6 LP box, and let Abigor care for the artwork.
At first we only had very few images and therefore, like on the already released LPs, again wanted to create something based on the original designs but ´brought into the new millennium´. But over the months, more and more bits appeard - PK found original cut-out images from magazines we used back then for lyric backgrounds, TT found more old photos, Silenius had more books with the source image used for original covers and booklets, and in the end, with the help of 2 old comrades contributing more missing images, we magically had all pieces to reconstruct the very original artworks, with the same source material as for the CDs in the 90s. Due to the huge research work of Mr. Ben Zodiazepin, we also could finally use each and every original font used in the old CD booklets.
And although one or another photo may be missing, we used others from the same sessions and even additional material from the respective times that resurfaced.
2 decades after their initial manifestations, enthusiastically we will soon be presenting you a 6 LP box with the original visual and sonic material of:

LP1: VERWÜSTUNG/INVOKE THE DARK AGE
LP2: ORKBLUT (THE RETALIATION) including ´Shadowlord´, recorded in the same period
LP3: NACHTHYMNEN - FROM THE TWILIGHT KINGDOM
LP4: OPUS IV
LP5: APOKALYPSE
LP6: SUPREME IMMORTAL ART

To be pressed in a few weeks and released by Soulseller Records on black vinyl, with extensive booklet and detailed liner notes, giving insight to the formation of Abigor, the individual recording sessions, the lyrical influences and atmosphere of the times right through to the split of the ´classic´ line-up in 1998, in best visual and sonic quality exclusively.

Good news. So many interesting boxsets being released lately, I'm running out of room!

Edit: Oh, Napalm is releasing it... Hopefully they'll consider some US distribution on their releases this time? Confused

Brilliant! Thank you very much for the heads-up.

Reading the info it sounds like this was quite a task to stem in the form the box set will shape up, but I'm truly grateful the band and their helping hands went the extra mile as it seems like I can barely be in sympathy with classics being reissued with alternate art. Blame the old stick-in-the-mud fart that I am. It's also great to see "Shadowlord" is gonna be included as well since this is one of my favourite Abigor songs.

Thank you very much to all involved parties that put a lot of thought and work into this obviously. Now this is a retrospective I'm tremendously looking forward to.

Agreed. I'll pay what it takes though. Since Soulseller is releasing it, I may wholesale copies when the time comes.
