SAMAEL's last release was the "On Earth" single, featuring the album version of the title cut, plus various remixes, along with a cover of DEPECHE MODE's "I Feel You", a video for "Telepath" and a live recording of the track "On Earth", recorded in Paris, France. The band's "Reign of Light" full-length CD was released in North America in February 2005 via Nuclear Blast Records. SAMAEL's Vorph and Xy issued an album from their "Era One" project — originally recorded and delivered to Century Media in the summer of 2002 but re-arranged and remixed in the fall of 2005 — in January 2006. "Era One" consists of 10 tracks of electronic music composed and performed by Xy with lyrics and vocals by Vorph.
