Ordo MCM is proud to announce that it will be doing vinyl editions ofTheatre of Tragedy's earliest, most classic works, all officially licensed from Massacre Records. Included in this campaign will be the pioneering Norwegian band's sophomore album,Velvet Darkness They Fear, from '96, which has been long out of print on vinyl, and 1997's A Rose for the Dead EP, never before released on vinyl.
Says founding drummer Hein Frode Hansen, "Theatre of Tragedy is really happy that A Rose for the Dead will finally be released on vinyl for the first time. We have searched our archives and found a rare bonus track exclusive for this release - a demo version of the title track recorded by the band themselves in a youth club back in March 1996. We have also found some rare photos from this time period from our personal collections to be included in the inner sleeve. This will be the ultimate edition of this mini-album! Theatre of Tragedy is really looking forward to the collaboration with Ordo MCM on these vinyl reissues."
