Carach Angren's first two albums, "Lammendam" and "Death Came Through A Phantom Ship," will be re-released via Season of Mist on July 19th (July 23rd in North America) in remastered versions with bonus tracks.

Both albums will be re-released on Digipak CD and various coloured LPs. Pre-orders are available on Season of Mist’s e-shop now.

The label also comments:

"Originally released in 2008, debut album 'Lammendam' set the basics of Carach Angren’s refined yet angry symphonic black metal. The Dutch created a baroque cinematic style that related true to their haunting subject to classical horror movies, which was underlined by the use of violin and grand piano. The reissue of ‘Lammendam’ features three bonus track taken from the long sold-out ‘Ethereal Veiled Existence’ debut EP (2005)."

1. Het Spook van de Leiffartshof
2. A Strange Presence Near the Woods
3. Haunting Echoes from the Seventeenth Century
4. Phobic Shadows and Moonlit Meadows
5. Hexed Melting Flesh
6. The Carriage Wheel Murder
7. Corpse in a Nebulous Creek
8. Invisible Physic Entity
9. Heretic Poltergeist Phenomena
10. La Malédiction de la Dame Blanche
11. There Was No Light [bonus track]
12. After Death Premises [bonus track]
13. Yonder Realm Photography [bonus track]

Season of Mist comments on "Death Came Through A Phantom Ship:"

"In 2010, the release of ‘Death Came Through A Phantom Ship’ marked a new chapter for Carach Angren. With this sophomore album, the band refined their established formula, blending a uniquely baroque approach into melodic black metal partly related to Cradle of Filth and Dimmu Borgir. The reissue of ‘Death Came Through A Phantom Ship’ includes three songs from the 2004 ‘The Chase Vault Tragedy’ demo and from the ‘Ethereal Veiled Existence’ EP, re-recorded in 2011."

1. Electronic Voice Phenomena
2. The Sighting is a Portent of Doom
3. ...and the Consequence Macabre
4. Van der Decken's Triumph
5. Bloodstains on the Captain's Log
6. Al Betekent Het Mijn Dood
7. Departure Towards a Nautical Curse
8. The Course of a Spectral Ship
9. The Shining was a Portent of Gloom
10. The Ghost of Raynham Hall [2011 version bonus track]
11. Ethereal Veiled Existence [2011 version bonus track]
12. Sepulchral Disequilibrium [2011 version bonus track]

This is cool news, but it better be a true remaster, not a volume boost. The original albums sound completely fine to me. But if I hear a single instance of clipping (which does not occur on either album), I will be 100% p***ed off. :)

Lammendam already sounds perfect, no need to remaster. It is by far their best produced album, crystal clear. However, DCTAPS and WTCSF were both recorded badly and sound muddy. Nitpicking aside, this band is awesome and addictive. Gloomy Grim is a close second, but these guys are kings of their genre.

Ooh... them bonus tracks... each of their albums has a very similar sound but a unique flavour. Hope the remaster is good.
