about

To celebrate our tenth birthday, here's the reissue of our first album "Nord", initially released in 2006 on Radar Swarm/Crucial Blast with a bonus CD compiling rare tracks from split records (with ROSETTA and KARYSUN among others), some covers (JOY DIVISION and THE CURE) and old remastered songs from our demo. This reissue really worths to collect all tracks from our first line-up (before our instrumental era begun with "Ausserwelt") with agressive songs and screaming vocals. Six years after its first release, this record is still actual with its post-metal style mixed with a lot of other tunes (sludge, drone, black-metal, etc).

The psychedelics just kicked in nearly 10 years ago and the smoke is still here. Welcome to an atrocity exhibition where the past stands crucified to the altar of egotism and failed acts! Since its inception, YONL, weird orbital entity, has been cursed by doubts and addictions before knowing joy, implosion and rebirth. After all, music is all about emotion no? Then, dear audience, you hold into your hands the complete recordings (ranging from 2004 to 2008) of YONL's first incarnation, featuring «Nord» of course, but also the 2004 demo and several splits, covers, collaborations and remixes. Thank you.


Thanks to all label involved and extra special thanks to Nicolas / Music Fear Satan for his everlasting support !
