Aarni's celebrated debut full length album 'Bathos' was first released in 2004 e.v. This improved version has been remastered in 2010 e.v. from the original session mixdowns, removing excessive bottom end and midrange as well as featuring a much nicer overall harmonic balance, stereo expansion and more sensible compression settings. In other words, this version sounds clearer, more natural and generally more pleasing than the original CD release with its unfortunately dodgy "loudness war" mastering.
released May 9, 2010

Rhesus Christ - most (but not all) drums
