Double CD in 6 page Digifile

The ambience of grim desolation: With 'The Empty Hollow Unfolds', originally released 2000 on Cold Meat Industry, the ubiquitous Peter Andersson continues his exploration of internal desolation, be it of a spiritual base or purely of self. The darkened shadows cast on the album are of an eerie, almost sinister allegiance, as if the maw at the center of infinity is yawning wide and the haled breath freezes souls; brittle souls that shatter before the immense veracity of such imposing internal devastation. Bones clang over chain-link fences. 'The Empty Hollow unfolds' is a grim travelogue from the land where the sun never rises; grievous keyboard passages overlaid by factory noises and the trademark chanting monks turns this into some of the most unsettling listening since the days of Lustmord's 'Paradise Disowned'. The album was voted as the single best release in the history of Cold Meat Industry, making it an important milestone and point of reference.

This new 2021 expanded edition is an updated version of the long sold-out expanded edition from 2014, now being a double CD release. Disc one contains the same tracks as the previous expanded edition. The additional disc contains session-related compilation tracks (also available on the Collected Works album) and a selection of live tracks from the special expanded edition of 'The Empty Hollow Unfolds' from 2014.

All material has a fresh new K-14 level mastering presenting the highest possible sound quality. The artwork is, as the earlier editions, styled with the somber industrial photos by Martín Pels.
