Though the official release date is the 2nd of August, Fantotal has already sent out the first orders of the "THE BOY MUST DIE" 7"-single. It glows so nicely. 🖤 You can still get a copy here:

Please let me remind you that the DEADLINE for ordering the "THE BOY MUST DIE" T-shirt (which glows in the dark) is this Sunday: July 7th. 🌑

Yesterday, Fantotal opened the pre-orders for the TAPES, T-SHIRT and 7"-VINYL of the "THE BOY MUST DIE" single. :) Both vinyl and tapes are signed and numbered, but I forgot to take photos of it, before having everything shipped off to Fantotal. So, the pictures here (and over on Fantotal's site) are of my own copies, which is why nothing seems to have a number. But everything does! :) The tapes and the 7"-single are basically collector's items, because the music of "The Boy must die" is EXACTLY THE SAME as on the album!!! It is NOT a special mix, nor an instrumental version!!! In other words: if you already own the album "DEATH & FLAMINGOS", you already own the music of this single!!! (But it's a very purrdy single ... and since SOPOR never had a 7" before, we thought: "Why the hell not?! If not now, then when?!" -- Also, it is meant to help pay for MUBLA WEN A). 🌑

Only available from Fantotal: (Lovely odds & help with a new album) 🦇

New interview (well, it's from two months ago) about the album "Death & Flamingos" over on OBSKÜRE's new website. It's all in French though. 🐸

Today (May 10th) is the DEADLINE for pre-ordering the fabulous "RosaWinkel" (aka DeathFlamingo) T-shirts. As always, we will only have as many shirts printed as have actually been pre-ordered. In other words: after today...they'll be gone. 💀
Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble Of Shadows (offiziell) Apr 24, 2019
Please, let me remind you that the DEADLINE for ordering SOPOR's fabulous "RosaWinkel/DeathFlamingo" T-Shirt is May 10th. That's in about two weeks. After that, it will be gone. As with all SOPOR shirts, this one will also come in size "small" (S) all the way to 5XL (for the hot fatties!). It's available exclusively from Fantotal: (I wonder, if I'm doing something wrong, because the compression of this image on here is just terrible. At least it looks awful on *my* screen. Oh, well ... fuck it. Just let me assure you that it will look quite wonderfully purrdy in reality!) -- AVC.

My copy of the "VOR DEM TODE TRÄUMEN WIR" 12inch vinyl arrived early (much to my surprise). At first I was a little disappointed, because the splatter effect doesn't cover the entire record (which is what I had expected)...but now I actually like it even better this way. It kind of reminds me of a(n exploding) magpie in flight, which, symbolically speaking, is rather fitting. 🖤
Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble Of Shadows (offiziell) Apr 01, 2019
Available exclusively from Fantotal: 12" vinyl single (with CD) of "VOR DEM TODE TRÄUMEN WIR"...along with a set of beautiful patches...and that fabulous black "DeathFlamingo"-pin. Oh, and there is a Tshirt, too! :)

Since the photo gallery thing(ies) on the SOPOR homopage cannot be updated anymore (because...reasons), I have finally set up two INSTAGRAM accounts. One is for all the lovely tattoo-portraits (fittingly named "SOPOR AETERNUS TattooPortraits"): ...the other ("SOPOR AETERNUS official") is for...well, other SOPOR images: The latter is still empty, but feel free to subscribe, follow...or whatever it is one does on there. Just be warned. It probably won't be pretty (and you'll probably regret it). 💀

I just listened to both vinyls ... via headphones ... to check, if there might be any difference in sound/quality between the split-colour and the splatter edition ... - and there is not. They both hiss, crackle and rumble. In short, they sound as annoying as only vinyl can. In other words: ALL IS PERFECTLY FINE. ;) When they first got here, I kind of preferred the splatter edition. But now, having seen them both spinning on the turntable ... I actually like the split one better. Maybe because it's the obvious "translation" of DEATH & FLAMINGOS (as in black & pink)...or maybe it's simply because it's so dark in here that the split colour is the only one that I can actually see. Hmm, whatever ... I'm glad I have them both. ;)
Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble Of Shadows (offiziell) Jan 31, 2019
The VINYLS just arrived, and they're looking quite FABULOUS!!! :) The splatter ones are even prettier than I pictured them, because the semi-transparency of the purple was maintained, and I didn't expect that. VERY, VERY lovely. :) Oh, and by the way, TODAY is the DEADLINE for the "DeathNotes":
Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble Of Shadows (offiziell) Jan 28, 2019
I just received my copies of the CD edition of the new album. Looks purrdy. :) I was worried, they might not be able to hotfoil-print the logo on the cover, because all the numbers and letters are even smaller than an ant's...(I want to say asshole, but I'm a Lady) ant's "rose". But they managed. Yay. :) Oh, by the way, the DEADLINE for pre-ordering and getting the DEATH NOTE ends in less than a week, February 1st.
Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble Of Shadows (offiziell) Jan 01, 2019
I had intended to sleep through this, but then I woke up at 23:00, because some assholes just HAD to start shooting their loads prematurely. Idiots. Actually, this had sporadically been going on since 2:00 in the afternoon, but what else is new. Since there was no hope of going back to sleep again, I eventually climbed upstairs and watched the gawddamn fireworks. I hate that shit though. It instantly triggers my depression (and/or the desire to erase mankind, whatever comes first), plus I am always worried that something might go up in flames. After all, an alarming bunch of drunken retards playing with explosives. What could possibly go wrong? (Well, the firetrucks left the station at 15 past midnight, probably heading towards the ghetto). You might think there is a heavy fog outside, but it's actually smoke from the crackers. It looks like fucking Chongqin at nighttime. Happy new year, whitetrash. Lets start by making the air completely unbreathable, shall we? Isn't 2019 the year of the PIG? Well, that's at least fitting. Gawd, I fucking hate people. It's 2:00 AM now, and it appears the noise has finally subsided. I have a throbbing migraine, but at least the tide didn't come in this time, so that's something. Small blessings and all that. Yay, good times. OK, so ... Alex (label) sent me an email yesterday (or whenever, I don't even remember), asking me to post a reminder (right on the 1st of January, which is now...for me, anyway) that the DEADLINE for the DEATH NOTES is in exactly one month (February 1st) ... and that the new SOPOR-album "Death & Flamingos" is available for pre-order. Here's the link: (He also mentioned something about wishing everyone on FB a "happy new year", but ... pffff).

QUIZ TIME - WIN FABULOUS PRIZES So, yesterday, a friend of mine sent me this WALKING DEAD calendar. But not, as any reasonable person would expect, the acceptable edition with the cute, little zombie people ... but instead he opted for the disgusting hetero version with all these hideous, unwashed, ugly-ass deformities and fake lesbians (I mean, look at this unfortunate Maggie character ... isn't anyone getting bred by an Asian boi basically a lesbian?). I know, they say "it's the thought that counts" and all, but ... seriously, bitch ... what were you thinking?! However, instead of throwing that crap straight into the trashcan (like I would normally do), I decided to spread the love and offer it up as a fabulous prize here on lovely FB. After all, most of you people are probably unwashed and deformed as well ... so that calendar will perfectly blend in with the rest of your mutant family portraits. The deadline for entering the contest is ... umm, I guess, when I get bored with this ... which will most likely be within the next five seconds. So you better be quick with your answers. The question is: WHY?
Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble Of Shadows (offiziell) Dec 18, 2018
The TAPES are ready. 👍 This is the pink edition (obviously). :)

Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble Of Shadows (offiziell) Oct 29, 2018
As some of you may have already seen, the remaining copies of the lovely 12" VINYL+CD combopack of the "REPRISE"-single have been made available online over at Fantotal: :) "REPRISE" (or rather "When you love a Man - Reprise", which is the correct title) is a beautiful instrumental track from the "THE SPIRAL SACRIFICE" session, that couldn't make it on the actual album. Musically, it is based on the last few bars of the song of the same name, but then turns into something else entirely. It's a bit of a journey ... just like the title might suggest (to some). While the music in itself is beautiful already ... if you, however, play the 45 at 33 1/3, everything suddenly turns into beautiful SADNESS.
