ABOUT THE ALBUM
When MORTAL - LUSIS crashed onto the unsuspecting Christian scene in January of 1992 no one could be prepared for just how epic this release would be. Released months before Circle of Dust and Under Midnight this is THE release that opened the door to industrial music on a major Christian record label (Intense Records). Jerome and Jyro wasted no time bringing in some of the brightest and most creative music geniuses known to our music scene - including Terry Scott Taylor (Daniel Amos) as producer, Rob Watson (Daniel Amos) a engineer), Ed McTaggart (Daniel Amos) for artwork, and Ramald Domkus aka Allan Aguirre (Scaterd Few). What they all labored to create was historic levels of cutting edge creativity - particularly for a Christian music scene that would still be releasing melodic hair metal albums well into 1995! But those of us craving something special, something different, something that would be iconic twenty five years later thank God that Jerome and Jyro were adventuresome, restless musical spirits. Yes, they touched on territory covered by Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, and even Stabbing Westward - but Lusis was filled with reckless, LOUD guitars, and awesome samples (long before Logic and Pro Tools were common)! Lusis stole the hearts of edgy industrial/alternative fans with tracks like “Enfleshed” and “If Ever Maria” and never gave those hearts back! Retroactive Records is thrilled to oversee the 2017/2018 reissue of LUSIS on VINYL for the very first time (because of length it will be a full 12” LP + a 7” Vinyl as a 2 Vinyl Set). Both the 12” Vinyl (surprise color) and the 7” (black) Vinyl have their own artwork and will be packaged together in one plastic polysleeve. The 12” insert includes lyrics and an historic write up about Lusis by DW Dunphy. Digitally remastering was handled by the amazing J Powell at Steinhaus for pure audio perfection. Lusis has literally never sounded better than now! This is a one time pressing of 300 units. Don’t delay in getting this classic album as these guys went on to great things (Jerome plays with the mighty Switchfoot!) and we expect these units to go quickly!
