We don't yet have that option worked out, so our customers don't yet have the ability to purchase any version but the simplified packaging.

The design of the tray card (official name for the back cover, which goes inside the CD tray) is finished so very soon I'll make it available as a PDF download for those who wish to print it themselves.

Those customers who wish to purchase a "classic style" package in a jewel case will need to wait a bit longer, and the price will be slightly higher too (otherwise everyone will just buy the plastic case version and it would defeat the whole purpose of this change).  We lowered the price from the usual $12.99 to $10.99 for the simplified packaging and if somebody wants a version with the tray card and the jewel case we'll probably just charge the old $12.99 price for it.

Sorry for the delay -- I just have to figure out how to implement the dual-format listing in our store.

Has there been an update so far about the "classic style" packaging of the new viridian sun ?

I'll bump this one. One idea to overcome the "dual-format listing in the store" would be to simply buy via email and simply pay via Paypal after confirmation. I'm planning a Hypnos store order and it would be grat if I could include the new Viridian Sun "classic style"

The new front artwork is great (except for the problem I have with the new "style" of the packaging).
Is this a simple rerelease or was there any remastering or anything like that ? I recently bought the original release... it's one of Jeff's best in my opinion.

ok thanks for the info, I will then just wait until it's solved before I place my order. Maybe you could just list it twice, with two different catalogue numbers and a little explanation...

105
Hi, this is great news. But one question before I place another Hypnos order : you said it would be possible to get a classic "back cover" as with the classic Hypnos releases... where can I enter those instructions ? And will the price be significally different ?

wow now this is nice :)

Will this rerelease come in its original form or will it come with the new packaging discussed in the VIRIDIAN SUN thread ?

Hi, is the Jeff Pearce "Daylight Slowly" rerelease still on the agenda in the next weeks/months/year(s) ? At the moment I can only get it at Discogs at the incredible price of more than 40€...

Greetings,

I've been using Opera for years now (and sometimes Firefox with AdBlock Plus) and I'm never going to change anymore :)

Dynamic Stillness is available for pre-order:
http://steveroach.com/store/store.php?item=418

Amazing I check the page for mp3 samples every day :)
This I am sure will be the album of the year.

Best album so far is Deathspell Omega - Veritas Diaboli Manet in Aeternum: Chaining the Katechon

This is a bit off topic but I'm glad to see albums like Esoteric - The Maniacal Vale and Deathspell Omega - Veritas Diaboli Manet in Aeternum: Chaining the Katechon mentioned here by some members.
It seems like you guys here also like a very broad spectrum of music.

The last part of your message sounds great to me. Let's just hope then not too many people are like me, as I see your estimations maybe a bit too low (1%).

I see, so for example - I don't know if this is doable without too much work - you could for the future releases still get a certain number of "back covers" - like a few hundreds - printed and give the die-hard fan the option to additionally acquire the back cover for a few cents more... just an idea

As for making available a printed tray card, as I mentioned earlier it's difficult to print a tray card that's perfectly trimmed, well-aligned and properly folded.  We think most people would be satisfied without, most of the rest would be OK with printing their own at home, and for those who want a tray card and don't have a high-quality color printer of their own, we could probably come up with some option.  Including a tray card alone, without a jewel case, the problem would be how to mail it without damage in transit.

Thanks for the reply Mike.

I often order CDs and tell the mailorder to send me the CDs without jewel case (i haven't tried that at Hypnos so far  :D). Most of the time they put the CD and the covers on a small piece of carton then everything's fine. So far I've never had problems with damaged tray cards. Jewel cases are very often damaged (broken ring or other problems) but the artwork is always perfect.

The "and for those who want a tray card and don't have a high-quality color printer of their own, we could probably come up with some option" option is a good idea, thanks :)

Have you always done the cutting of the tray cards yourselves or do they come from the pressing factory in the right format ?

Oh I forgot

I would even be ready to pay a bit more to get a pro-printed back cover, instead of having to print a PDF on my black and white laser printer ;)

I've just flown over the latest posts, and one important question comes to my mind : so with the next Hypnos releases there is no "back cover" anymore ? Wouldn't be possible to offer an option to sell the CD with the classic artwork (front booklet, back cover) simply without a jewel case ? I'm sure most people have tons of empty jewel cases at home and they just put everything in one of their jewel cases ? For me personally no "back artwork" as in previous Hypnos releases would be quite a loss, whereas I understand that the paper sleeve can't fit such a back artwork.

Was there an option to make digipaks ? There's not as much plastic as in normal jewel cases ? Or those "paper digipaks" without plastic as for example the latest Caspian album Tertia ? I think they call it paper cardboard sleeve or similar

I started running about 3 years ago, to overcome a separation. Since then I regularly run, about 2-4 times a week (it depends on the time I have), each time between 1,5 hour minimum and 3 hours. Considering that the place where I live is surrounded by kilometers of forests in every direction, and that I have the forest 50m behind the house, and since I love nature and forests, it's an easy task. I also ride my mountainbike to bring some change into the whole thing.
It helped me a lot to get over the separation back in 2006 but I also have to say that I feel better now than I ever did before (well I'm only 28...) and my body has really changed, I mean those muscles everywhere... :)
Here in Luxembourg running has become quite popular during the last years, due to a marathon they're organizing every year. But so far I've never been interested in participating...

You guys mostly running alone or in groups ?

That's great news. After having read the "Viridian Sun" thread where you, Mike, elaborated about the new packaging of the Hypnos releases, I'm already very curious. Personally I hope your packaging is going into the Cyclic Law direction. Frédéric's label offers the most beautiful packaging in my opinion.
Just make sure you keep the fantastic abstract cover art of your CDs. The Hypnos albums I own so far (about 40) make a very homogenous unity in my shelves.

If you got news what decision you made about the packaging, it's always welcome here :)

Hi, just a little question : on discogs I saw that there is no Hypnos 2243 and 2244, are they missing there or do those CDs not exist ?
