The Astral Sleep
(Century Media Records)
I don’t own the original version of TIAMAT’s “The Astral Sleep”, but from what Jeroni told me, it seems that the front- and backcover wasn’t changed for the re-release at all. The black background inside the booklet got replaced by the almost golden looking color of the frontcover and there’s no skeleton background behind the lyrics anymore (which makes them way better readable). The booklet has become a foldout version now, with a big band picture and logo on the backside. The CDs back features all songtitles, but no logo or anything else any longer. Bonus material: the two tracks from 1990s “A Winter Showdow” EP (‘A Winter Shadow’ and ‘Ancient Entity’).
