PW TAPE (ORIGINAL COPIES)
ALL ORDERS HAVE NOW BEEN SHIPPED. THIS WAS QUITE LITERALLY A NIGHTMARE TO WORK WITH, AS WE HAVE SPENT HOURS UPON HOURS TAKING TAPES OUT OF WELDED SHELLS AND PUT THEM INTO THE CORRECT TYPE, AMONGST OTHER THINGS.
DUE TO SOME INDIVIDUALS BEING ILLITERATE, WE MAY HAVE A SPARE FEW COPIES UP FOR SALE ONCE MORE, PRICED AT WHAT WE SHOULD HAVE PRICED THEM AT INITIALLY. THEIR LOSS IS YOUR GAIN. KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN.

DUE TO THE SCARCITY OF THE EXACT TAPE USED FOR THE RELEASE AND WHERE THEY WERE SOURCED FROM, WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR THE FINAL FEW BLANK TAPES TO ARRIVE, SO PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT YOUR ORDER WILL BE SLIGHTLY DELAYED. IF YOU CANNOT WAIT: DO NOT ORDER.
IF YOU NEED TRACKED SHIPPING, YOU NEED TO ADD THE ARTICLE "TRACKED SHIPPING" TO YOUR ORDER.
WE WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOST PACKAGES THAT DID NOT INCLUDE TRACKED SHIPPING!
These are ORIGINAL copies obtained directly from Infinite Wisdom through a trade with the band that was arranged with Astral Temple in 2014, but took nine years to finalize due to Infinite Wisdom going overseas for a considerable amount of years after sending out the covers once, then getting them returned and not being able to send them again until many years later, and then COVID only prolonged the process even further. But now, we finally have them after all these years.
Only a very small amount is available, and it will the only time you will ever see an original available again for a reasonable price. The tape was limited to 100 copies, but what people don't know is that far from all copies were actually sold at the time of the release, meaning that these are the remaining copies of those 100. The label also provided us with a handful of fliers depicting one of the panels from the cover art that we will include with all orders.
Please keep in mind that at the time of the release of this tape, sending out a master tape and only covers for labels/distros to dubb themselves was still a fairly common (but on it's way of being phased out) practice that has sadly enough now almost entirely died out completely. This was the case with these copies too.
As such, we went through the trouble and out of our way to find the exact same blank tapes that Infinite Wisdom used for this release, to make sure that these are completely identical to the ones Infinite Wisdom made 10+ years ago, so as to not cause confusion about their legitimacy. but also in order to not create something that could be seen as a separate edition of any kind, and accidentally feeding in to the collector frenzy of the band. This decision was agreed upon by Avgrundsklanger/Astral Temple, Infinite Wisdom and BMSS, and this brought up the final price of the tape a bit.
Anyone in doubt whether or not these are original copies that Infinite Wisdom made can contact Infinite Wisdom directly at [email protected]
