Texas occult metal legends once again join forces with the Crypt to unleash their sophomore masterpiece "The Sun of Tiphareth". A wealth of unreleased bonus material is included for this 3LP. Expect the usual Crypt standards for this classic gem of Mystical Occult Metal.

This ultimate edition contains well over two hours of Mythological Occult metal on 3 x 180 gram heavy vinyl LPs, strictly limited to a one time only pressing of 666 hand-numbered copies - 222 of which will be black vinyl. These killer slabs of wax come housed in 2 x 350 gram glossy gatefold jackets featuring the both of the original Osmose cover and layout, as well unpublished artwork by The Sun of Tiphateth cover artist Kris Verwimp, classic flyers, exclusive band photos, classic interviews and new, extensive liner notes by Proscriptor. Each gatefold will contain a huge poster of each respective original cover artwork.

LP one will feature the original 1995 sound recording, LP 2 will feature an brand new 2012 remix of the album sounding as the band originally intended and LP 3 will feature The Sun Of Tiphareth – Rehearsal Session: 1993.   Also included in the set will be an exact replica of the original "..and Shineth Unto The Cold Cometh..." 7" EP with the original layout and original master audio files being used.

Both gatefolds come housed in an amazing, heavy gauge case wrapped, hand numbered box with the original Kris Verwimp cover illustration.

We apologize for the steep price tag but unfortunately due to the deluxe packaging including the box, 2 full color posters, the bonus 7" EP and royaltys due to both band and label for this release, we were forced to raise it slightly more than usual. Rest assured that this monster box set is well worth every penny.
