A strange project that for a moment united Peter Andersson (raison d´etre) and Johanna Rosenqvist (ex-Institut, Koeff) in the distant 1992. Cataclyst´s music combines the melancholic beauty of early raison d´etre and Necrophorus, harsh industrial rhythms of Institut and tribal-elements of another undeservingly forgotten project of Peter - Svasti-Ayanam... What differs this product from other works of Swedish industrial scene masters is the atmosphere of remote fairy worlds in which you smoothly sink into while listening to "Monuments of a Rubicund Age". Peter and Johanna have woven an infinite labyrinth of mirages, walking through which will be a pleasant surprise for both the fans of ambient / experimental / industrial and more conservative gothic lovers. The first edition of the album was published by Peter´s own label Yantra Atmospheres in 1999 and was limited to 100 copies. This reissue has been made by joint efforts of the labels Tantric Harmonies and Zhelezobeton, it contains a shorter version of the album´s last piece + bonus-track. Original photographs are made by Pavel Bourchenko.
