Skepticism's highly anticipated new album, Ordeal is set for international release on September 18th via Svart Records. A legendary name in metal circles, Skepticism are widely hailed as one of the originators of funeral doom. Their first album for Svart and fifth overall, Ordeal is also the first Skepticism full-length since 2008's Alloy. But instead of going the usual recording-in-the-studio route, the band decided to record this new album live before an audience on January 24th at Klubi in Turku, Finland, with the event also captured on film. A truly unique experience for a truly unique band, Ordeal is a honest and accurate summary of what Skepticism is in 2015.
Finnish funeral doom metal titans released their fourth album Alloy in 2008. This long overdue CD reissue is paired with the band’s 1999 mini album Aes.
CD edition. Skepticism’s debut album from 1995 is a funeral doom classic. This new edition is newly mixed from the original tape reels by Anssi Kippo and supervised by the band.
“Stormcrowfleet was originally released in 1995. Until now the album did not exist on vinyl. Instead of taking the easiest route we wanted to make the vinyl version the best it can be. We bought the multi-track tapes at the end of the recording sessions back in the day and have
stored them for possible later use. This use became the Stromcrowfleet reissue – not just a vinyl edition but a complete remix of the album from the original recordings.
In the remix sessions nothing was added or changed in the original recordings. The mix was done at Astia-studio with high quality analog equipment. In fact most of the equipment used did exist already in 1995. What did not exist back in the day was more than two decades of audio
engineering tradition dedicated to processing extreme metal. In this process that tradition manifested in the form of Anssi Kippo – multiple award winning producer who handled the mixing in co-operation with the band members. In short the target was not to do a different mix but one
with the original vision for the album with better equipment and engineering.”

This is the remarkable album’s vinyl debut. Spread over three LP sides and paired with the album’s counterpart from 1999, the EP Aes, the entire package has been remastered from the original DAT tapes by Jaime Gomez Arellano at Orgone Studios.
