Reissue of this 1999 collaboration between Etant Donnes (Eric & Marc Hurtado) and Michael Gira (Swans), featuring Mark Cunningham (Mars) and Saba Komossa (Delkom).The album is based upon the text "Offenbarung Und Untergang" ("Revelation and Demise"), written by the Austrian expressionist poet Georg Trakl in 1914. The Hurtado brothers create a fittingly eerie, somber and desolate soundscape as backdrop to Giras reading and singing (in German) of Trakls equally somber poetic text.
