descriptions, reviews, &c.

Years after its original 2001 release, band leader Yoshida Tatsuya and the current Koenjihyakkei line-up (as heard on "Dhorimvishka") returned to the "Nivraym" master recordings and went to work - adding new flourishes, additional overdubs and re-recorded drum tracks.

"After years of working with Tatsuya's (other band) Ruins, Skin Graft released Koenjihyakkei's fourth album Angherr Shisspa in 2005. Then they brought their first, second and third albums out internationally." - comments Mark Fischer of Skin Graft Records. "In 2018, Koenjhyakkei returned to great acclaim with album number five Dhorimviskha, which we followed up with a vinyl release of Angherr Shisspa. Skin Graft Records brings back the third album under the title "Nivraym (Revisited)". It's received an extensive overhaul since its original Japanese release. When the 2023 version is compared to the 2001 original, it is a huge difference".

The album has been remixed, remastered and resequenced for this revolutionary revisitation - the band's purest, most uncompromising expression of Zeuhl music to date; blending progressive rock, symphonic rock, fusion and neoclassicism with the energy of hardcore punk, the volume of metal and the attitude of rock in opposition.

Also available on CD.
