Ltd 400 copies Deluxe vintage 1970s US paper stock case-wrapped heavy style tip on cover sleeve, poster. Limited edition 400 copies. Ball is back from the grave! The disturbed, smut-peddling, Swedish hard rock slime heavy psych band makes a triumphant return soaked in bloody diabolical occult havoc. ??this is what black metal would sound like if it was from Detroit ?68.? --Jus Oborn (Electric Wizard) Fucked-up, subhuman fuzz guitars. Depraved, screaming vocals. Gutrumbling bass and caveman groove drums. This is hard rock from hell. Like You Are ? I Once Was - Like I Am ? You Will Never Be is the follow-up to their celebrated debut album from two years back. Ball now returns from a holiday in hell, loaded and ready to get ya! In between albums, the band appeared in a Showtime/HBO Nordic TV series and contributed an unholy single track to the now infamous and groundbreaking shock book Debauched ? Witchery & Devilry that documents occult/satanic sexuality in print. On a deeper level, the band members have gone further to their roots by establishing a secretive coven, purportedly lead by the wicked High Priestess Satana, Dark Lord of the underworld to her followers. Ball worship Satana?s womanliness and proclaim that it is by order of her that they have performed, recorded, and released this new album. As Ball describes it the whole idea is to: - Conjure up visions of crimson blood and raw flesh that will permeate the listeners minds and initiate a lustful Luciferian response. Fuck rock init. The striking cover painting was created by the mysterious Finnish artist Heikki Lemmetyinen. It is painted in LSD dipped fluorescent ultraviolet colors to capture some of the turned-on vibes of Ball. Ball was formed by the mysterious Syr?k Ball, previously known as a strong force in the occult secret society underground of Northern Europe. Backed by his two older brothers they form a fierce and fearsome power trio. These guys aren?t very talkative and live shows still aren?t happening. No one?s on probation anymore, luckily, but so far, they?ve blanketly refused all offers to perform because they always end up in a bloody brawl. But we?re lucky that they have at least stayed together and recorded this new album. Packaging: Limited edition black vinyl w/ deluxe case-wrapped sleeve + poster
