“Signum” was initially released more than twenty years ago on cd format and became a larger-than-life cornerstone of P.A.L’s discography as well as a historical document in industrial music. recorded over a three year period from 1993- 95 this album displays the past & present face of this artist’s sonic variety ranging from sweeping minimalistic soundscapes and powerloaded percussion-driven floorburners to heavily distorted harsh power noise attacks presented as a unified front. the industrial anthem ‘Gelöbnis’ is a truly fine example for the combination of crystal clear mastering and the selective, inspired implementation of samples which was always an important factor for p.a.l and became a trademark of his works.
ant-zen and aufnahme + wiedergabe are proud to present the extraordinary reissue of this long-deleted legendary release on coloured heavy double vinyl in a gatefold sleeve. a timeless opus for being re-discovered by adepts and recovered by novices.
