The eighth edition of this legendary album and for the 1st time on so frequently asked VINYL! Finally! And now with 3 exclusive unreleased tracks! Not absolutely new tracks, no, as it would disrupt the atmosphere of album, all sounds are from the original session which you will be able to hear instantly in the “new” songs. They definitely hold the atmosphere and overall sound of “Transformalin” and should not be seen as left over material from the recording but rather as good ideas which were re-visited and finalized in 2014 now the standing in the right place. “Transformalin” never sounded more complete than on this 2LPs!
A few short comments from HAL about unheard tracks:
“Utsikt Ifrån Botten”, translates to “View from the ocean floor” – a song, which many listeners have searched for, but never found before. Some true followers may find the ending quite familiar as this is the sound you hear when visiting www.diagnoselebensgefahr.com , the very first song ever written by Diagnose: Lebensgefahr.
“Obducenten Har Vaknat”, translates to “Mortician´s Awakening” – this is the BROTHER song of “Obducentens Dröm” (Mortician´s Dream) from the “Transformalin” album.
“När Livet Slås Sönder”, translates to “As Life Is Smashed To Pieces” – the final chapter of this complete album version. A journey of craziness, sickness, anxiety, epilepsi, blank empty eyes and the haunting MOTHER.
Words are not enough to describe the visceral feelings that Transformalin delivers, but this sound-therapy will cure your soul or make you total sick!
This project’s sole member is Nattramn, whose ‘Death—Pierce Me’ album under the project name Silencer stand as defining work in the suicidal black metal movement. Diagnose: Lebensgefahr is significantly different from either, though, and should not be considered a black metal album as such. For the first time this album blew up the world in 2007 and now it’s still one of the most interesting works on current scene.
Transformalin is a bleak voyage through related genres, particularly dark ambient, power electronics, martial and noise-influenced industrial, with black metal serving as the filter that taints and completes them. Consequently, ‘Transformalin’ is a jarring experience that can be harshly rhythmic at one moment and the next dive into unmetered, dragging ambience, while still others draw on martial cadences and horn reveries that echo in the background. Though mostly instrumental, he does provide ‘narration’ from time to time with primarily clean vocals that range from manically impassioned to psalm-tone catatonia.
This is a really special vinyl edition, with tones of art inside…so do not miss the chance to get one of these.

Well, it seems that sometimes I can be also less dark than normal. This is a cover for a Romanian band called Dirty Shirt. It will be a very complex and intense album which unite forces of traditional Romanian music with metal music. So, I needed to go with my mind into another space in order to create…this.

Ok, this is a very personal message, to many of you. It is a very short story about me in the last 3 months. I am not complaining here, I am just explaining. It is of course, not the worst story in the world, is just a story. It is all about understanding and happiness. Even both of these concepts can have various ways of fulfilling our perception…here is not a topic about these differences. So, in the end of this short presentation I would like to add something: Even there are some ironical elements, this is not a joke. This is real and this movie is also maybe the first “something” I create out of a negative situation, to present the positive side of it. I consider the observation and analysis of negative moments, elements or situations in this world, materialized using art of any kind, being not to useful, if you really want to go on living in this world. To agitate your anger about any kind of stuff which apparently steal your happiness will not making things better.
