Salvete my dear cosmic travelers, scientists of metaphysics and connaisseurs of the truth.

The universe is on our side now and time has come to announce that after two years of work GUAPO´s 'Black Oni' vinyl version is on its way to the pressing plant. Therefore it is merely a trivial puzzle until we finally can take the step to let this - out of a world of images into a world of incarnation - become real.
The album has been given a makeover with doctored artwork strategies, sonic treatments and revised mastering. The result is absolutely exhilarating.
Conspiracy Records from Antwerp will take care of the worldwide distribution.

Black Oni is limited to 500 hand-numbered copies, 180g white vinyl and super-deluxe gatefold jacket.
Release date: 12.12.07

DISTRIBUTORS and SHOPS:
To pre-order the album check this page:

Methods of payment : Paypal, bank transfer, conceiled cash, (no cheques)!

 
Here at last, Guapo´s "Black Oni" on handnumbered limited edition 180g white vinyl. Originally released on CD by Mike Patton´s Ipecac Records in 2005, this record is the second in a recondite trilogy which began with "Five Suns" and will be concluded by the release of "Elixirs" on Neurot Recordings in February 2008.

Here´s what was said about Black Oni first time round:

With this, their sixth album, Guapo have conjured a harrowingly complex and unflinchingly epic piece of work. Heady and hypnotic, driving and relentless, tumultuous and visceral, sonic and serene, the odyssey that is Black Oni encompasses many paradoxes in its massively dynamic scope. Picking up where they left off from their previous Cuneiform Records release Five Suns (2002), the band continue to expand on their palette of dexterous chamber-rock anomalies, modal transcendence, and apocalyptic death marches, and like it's predecessor, Black Oni is one singular piece of music, making it the second record in a trilogy of large-scale symphonic forms. Incorporating elements of prog, avant-garde jazz, kraut-rock, minimalism and a range of folk mediums from Britain to Indonesia, Guapo take their que from a disparate array of influences including Magma, King Crimson, Boredoms, Goblin, Sun Ra, Charlemagne Palestine, Univers Zero, This Heat, Olivier Messiaen and Popol Vuh. The a! ssembly of Dave Smith's explosive drum assaults, Matt Thompson's brazen and prowling bass throb, and Daniel O'Sullivan's ethereal keyboard reveries telepathically collide in an augury of rich and cinematic musical ceremony. Black Oni is Guapo's most monumentally unreserved offering to date.

Ooh, this sounds positively yummy!  I have this on CD and it sounds excellent, so a vinyl copy just has to sound even better, surely?

I sure hope so!

I don't have a record player at the moment, but this is one I want.  It's a top modern album for me.  It's such a great album. I could see this becoming very highly collectible.  I do prefer to invest in vinyl, and especially when it comes to limited editions.

What would the postage be for ordering direct from you, Hlava and how would I pay for it?

I have a PayPal account, if that helps?
