Dark tidings about the masters of death rock and goth rock Christian Death:

Season of Mist has announced plans to re-release most of CHRISTIAN DEATH's back catalog in remastered versions with bonus tracks. The first to receive the reissue treatment is the band's sophomore album, "Catastrophe Ballet", originally released in 1984 (BLABBERMOUTH.NET).

Catastrophe Ballet is one of their best albums.  The Drowning, Sleepwalk, and The Glass House are some of the the classic tracks.

I suppose this means I have to buy these albums again.  Over the years, so many "previously unreleased" tracks have been released, and they have all been great.

Please don't confuse Rozz Williams' Christian Death with the successive band fronted by Valor Kand.  Rozz was a brilliant poet/musician, and Valor... is not.
