Unveiled, the verge of the silence, the voice of the shadow; the cynosure of the psyche is trembling for the essential breath. A subliminal reborn of invisible light strikes the eyes as the underpass appears in the essence and escarps into the esoteric realm of the source of life. A subliminal summon from disappearing heart enthralls the wind of loneliness. Lost spirit leaves deep traces behind as the path is revealing. Circle within circle the lingering path transubstantiates ostensibly, into a revolving contemplation.

'Enthralled by the Wind of Loneliness', the second CD album by raison d'être, was originally released in 1994 by Cold Meat Industry. It is now available as a reduxed and enhanced CD album. All the sounds has been restored and re-recorded from source and all the tracks has been carefully mixed to maintain the true feeling and atmosphere of the original album but with the modern standards for high quality audio. 'Enthralled by the Wind of Loneliness' with four related related bonus tracks can for the first time be experienced with superior audio quality and well balanced mixes.

'Enthralled by the Wind of Loneliness' has been mastered according to the K-14 level standard. The K-14 system will ensure that the highest dynamical range will be preserved in the music. It will benefit the listener because the music will simply sound much greater than a hot or over-compressed album. All one need to do is to give an extra push one the amplifier volume control to match the gain of a hot mastered album.

Customers who buy 'Enthralled by the Wind of Loneliness' (redux version) directly from my bandcamp store (this webshop) will get two free download tracks; a second version of Spiraal (from 1999) used for the Italian art performance 'Angels' (also available on 'Lost Fragments', CMI.109) and an early previously unreleased version of the track 'Pharynx' (from 1993). The bonus tracks are original recordings and has been re-mastered 2013.
