SPECIAL EDITION: CD housed in a 6-panel premium digipak with 8-page booklet + bonus CD and art print. Strictly limited to 30 hand-signed copies. The limited edition is delivered in an handpainted envelope that shows the oldnorse trinity of male gods as it can be found on the gotlandic picturestone of Sanda: Odin, Thor and Freyr. Along with a copy of "Sun Of Melancholy" comes a bonus-CD that features seven unreleased tracks that were specially recorded for this edition. Finally, there is a print of an unpublished painting by Hermann Hendrich, the great mythical painter and creator of the "Nibelungenhalle", and some explanatory notes about this piece of art. 

A little bit of the old Current 93 here and there, early Blutharsch, Ostara, Ordo Equitum Solis, a few reminiscences of Forseti once in a while, etc., etc.? Martial drums, samples and industrial opulence, delicate folk instrumentation and touching melodies, beautiful and forceful lyrics both in English and German drenched in mysticism and the occult, three good voices (and even Art Abscon's on two songs), etc., etc.? And yet all of it perfectly unique, autonomous, fresh and unheard-of?

I (Michael alias Art Abscon) feel as if I have mixed and mastered a neofolk classic. A classic that is released in 2021. Aeldaborn’s “Sun Of Melancholy”. And, while I am trying not to sound too proud, I think I did an excellent job with the engineering and gave this album the sound it needs.
