At the request of many enthusiasts and late-borns to expand their Galakthorrö collection without paying enormous sums for the first pressing here's the repress of a precious traded treasure from the early days of Galakthorrö. Remastered and with a new artwork to match Galakthorrö's current monochrome design approach.
The Karl Runau Osmose LP is today very rare and changes hands in good condition complete with original extras (the four postcards!) for monstrous sums of money. In reply to the many requests from those who would like to enhance their Galakthorrö collection at an affordable price here is the repressing of catalogue number 004 from the year 1994. A sound document from the earliest days of Galakthorrö. Stylistically Osmose is still Power Electronics/Industrial later Karl Runau evolved towards less rabid tones. The record reflects the enthusiasm of that time when a youthful subculture after the impressions of Wave and Goth in the 80s discovered Industrial Music for themselves and celebrated the intensity of this direction also in musical terms. This can still be felt on Osmose. The aesthetic is raw wild and resembled live recordings. Uninhibited screaming the synths pulsing and throbbing feedback screeching and when the clean (digital) recordings of today irritate here you can taste the pleasure of the sound of finest 4-track cassette recording. The new edition was in need of new mastering which in particular harmonises the tracks with one another. However the lo-fi aesthetic has been totally maintained. The artwork has been adjusted to suit our actual design guideline and fits beautifully into the series of other Galakthorrö releases. Recommended listening: Especially the emotional angst poppy less brutal Wet Dream became a hit at relevant parties.
