Note: Meditation Of Transcendental Evil will not appear on the vinyl edition, but will be included as part of the album download with the LP. This infuriating oeuvre was gleaned from the 20 Buck Spin Bandcamp page and it saved me from wasting my cash on a truly ludicrous vinyl release. I’m speechless as to what the thinking behind this incredulous decision / oversight can be.

Why leave a vital, closing 14-minute-long track off the vinyl edition of the album? A quarter of the album is missing! The parting shot absent. What the fuck! Including a code for the missing track on MP3 is farcical. This is a staggering scenario.

I have the three previous Ævangelist full-lengths on LP format and will purchase ‘Enthrall To The Void Of Bliss’, too, once / if a proper version is made available containing the entire album.

For now, this is a shambolic and wholly inadequate offering that sticks two fingers up at those who wish to hear their favourite bands on vinyl. Somebody, somewhere has made a decision that makes no sense and others have gone along with that. Clearly, this should have been unleashed on 2LP.
