I'm pretty sure this feature will stand as one of doom-metal.com's jewels!

This was all such a fantastic read. Aesthetic Death is one of the best labels in the world and Stu has always been an wonderful guy in correspondence.

As for the album itself - despite the fact that Epistemological Dependency has always been my favourite Esoteric record, I've regarded The Pernicious Enigma as their best. But since I've been listening to the vinyl reissue I can not easily say which of them brings me more enjoyment - as cliched as it sounds, the remix has really taken the album to another level.

As someone who always found the mix rather 'difficult' I'd be very interested to hear it. I'm not shelling out for the vinyl though. Will wait for the CD.

Great, I'm still going to buy the CD when it comes out next year. I think this is one instance where a remaster is thoroughly valid. Fantastic stuff.

Wow, that interview brought back some memories for me. I was visiting my brother Steve while they where recording the album and spent a few days in the studio while i was there. I can remember Bryan getting offended at Steve for doing Bebop versions of Morbid Angel songs on an acoustic guitar and the moment Simon put the Frankenstein sample on Stygian and it fitting perfectly on the first go and sounding amazing. I may have even taken the photo of the band that is featured on the webpage, i remember taking one in Steve's back garden but never saw it when it got developed so i can't be sure.

But thanks for that interview and the review and sending me off down a road of nostalgia. That was probably one of the best weeks of my life, watching my brother record an album for the first time and with one of my favourite bands to boot, awesome.

Thanks for the input Chris! Nice to hear some other new stories about that time.

By the way - Chris is the guy who did the artwork for Metamorphogenesis and Subconscious Dissolution into the Continuum... so massive respect for that :-)
