dij-2007-BrownBook20.jpg

"In the stillness of a snowbound night . Brilliant white flares drift earthwards. The Runes are cast. Our idols are dust. A bell is shattered. Punishment begins. Further words would be futile. Dead leaves scattered among your Dreams. Listen and understand. The 'Heilige Tod.' Hath Not The Soul Descended upon Those that are Living?" (Extract from original 1987 press release)

Considered by some to be one of the most influential albums of all time, standing centrestage with works by The Beatles, The Velvet Underground, Bob Dylan and Joy Divison, 'controversial' is too trite a word to use in describing Death In June's 1987 opus 'Brown Book'.

This digitally remastered and specially presented 20th Anniversary Edition in a hand carved 'Totenkopf 6' oval stone box not only contains a CD of the original album but also an extra 14 track CD featuring 7 rarely heard, deleted alternative versions of the title track, plus other remixes/recordings from the period and since. In effect; 'Brown Book 2'.

Amongst the text is also included for the first time an English translation of the original German soliloquy featured on the title track.

4 exclusive sew-on Death In June/Runic cloth patches, plus oval information sheets and photos, also accompany this beautiful release. Truly the backbone to the Death In June catalogue.
