=> Remastered version with superior sound compared to the original CD!

Blutopfer is back – for the first time on tape! In 2023 we celebrate the long overdue return of Apoptose’s second album which originally surfaced in 2002. In the 21 years since its release, Blutopfer has become a classic album of the industrial/ritual-music genre. It combines raw ambient electronics with drumming footage of the Easter processions in the village of Calanda in Aragón, Spain. This album is still unique in its attitude and effect. A "must have“ that has been unavailable for quite a while.

Now, the Blutopfer tape edition brings back all the emotions and even more. The sound was remastered with great care to wake the spirits hidden in the tremendous drums. The tape comes in new artwork. So even fans who know the album by heart will be able to discover new aural and visual facets.

While the original CD was made of purple plastic to mimic a colour vinyl LP, the tape is housed in a frosted white case with purple print, lim. 50 copies. It features the bonus track which was recorded in 2016 for the LP edition. It is made with original source material that hadn’t been used before.
