Brilliant news to all Prog-Metal and maudlin of the Well fans, especially those who still lack exposure to their obscure debut album My Fruit Psychobells... A Seed Combustible . It is now available for pre-order on Dark Symphonies, with extra material and enhanced sound quality (thumbs up!)!!!
 
 
 
 
8 years after itís initial release and having been OOP for some time, Dark Symphonies is proud to re-issue Maudlin of the Wellís debut Masterpiece, My Fruit Psychobells... a seed combustible, completely remastered from the original DAT for optimal sound with all the original artwork created by band founder Toby Driver (KAYO DOT) and 2 exclusive, unreleased tracks. Maudlin of the Well play progressive, conceptual and atmospheric metal art, dubbed as "Astral Metal". The music is adventurous, haunting, eerie, diverse and colorful, combining influences of early My Dying Bride, Tiamat, The 3rd and the Mortal, Candiria, Opeth, early as well as the Gathering, the Tea Party, Oxiplegatz, Sieges Even and Disembowelment. The band is classically trained in music and the instruments used vary from standard drums, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, electric bass, death metal vocals, clean male and female vocals, upright bass, piano and keyboards to trumpet, flugelhorn, saxophone, cello and oboe. Unlike anything of itís kind, prepare to rediscover Maudlin of the Wellís astral metal experience! Featuring founding members of KAYO DOT. LIMITED TO 1000 COPIES!

Sounds rather dubious to me ... never heard of Dark Symphonies.

Sorry, this is not the proper way for a re-release. 1000 copies only? Thank you very much, you're doing your best to keep this band obscure.

Well, it is Dark Symphonies who we should thank for reissuing Bath AND Leaving Your Body Map with additional bonus material, and I don't recall hearing about any complaints with those, ever, therefore I would dare say they are a trustworthy entity.
 
1000 copies, however, is admittedly a very limited amount of copies, that I wholeheartedly agree with you on.

^ It simply seems like an extremely shady website ... it doesn't even say where the company is located. But the PayPal linkage seems to be legitimate - so I ordered a copy and will see what happens.Smile

I pre-ordered mine (and I ordered their two previous albums from there as well).
Not a dubious label at all, they are a small label and mailorder that focuses on dark/ambient/metal releases, and yes I agree that 1000 copies is probably too little of an amount, but maybe we should hear the business side of it - maybe they think they won't sell much more than that (I'm not saying I think so, I'm saying it might be their rational). But 1000 I believe is not enough.
The same happens with other releases like Xentrix (Kin, For Whose Advantage) and Solitude Aeturnus (Into The Depths Of Sorrow, Beyond The Crimson Horizon) which were re-released also in limited amounts (1000 and 2000 copies only worldwide, which is weird since Solitude has a pretty big following as I've seen in several countries).
And I also agree that advertisement could be better, more spread out. In this way, it seems only people who know the label (like Ivan and myself) get to know this and we are the ones to pass this on. They rely on their customers to do the marketing for them, I suppose.

Billerica, MA, USA
 
And they have good prices for their own band's albums and other label's band albums. Their mailorder is reliable (and free shipping in the US).

Seems to be a self fulfilling prophecy ... as long as they have such an uninviting/unfriendly website and do so little to market the albums, they'll only sell such small numbers of albums. Of course there's not a multi-platinum market for bands like Maudlin, but I'm absolutely sure that with the proper marketing they could do much better than 1000 albums.

Awesome. I've had trouble locating this one. Sound quality on it badly needed the remaster anyway. Probably best I didnt find it prior to this.

Sweet. I don't think I could ask for a better price. Now I'll have all 3 of their albums official. It has great artwork too.

This is not a shady website. I ordered Bath and Leaving your Body Map from them when they were first released in 2002 for $20.00 with free shipping. I believe I made the order on a Friday, and it arrived on a Monday. I have been wanting to get this one for a while, the only copies I have seen were on ebay for $30.00 or so, so I ordered this as soon as I saw the link.
 
Cheers,
DC
I think a good name for a band would be Prophylactica

Well, I'll order one too and maybe a couple of other records so I hope it isn't as shady as you suspected Tongue - I've been looking out for a cheap copy of this and grau.cd is actually more expensive thanks to the ultra-low dollar (and also doesn't mention if it's a remaster or not!)
