Just short of twenty years after its release, ESOTERIC’s sophomore full-length album “The Pernicious Enigma” has finally found its way onto vinyl courtesy of Aesthetic Death Records.  Recorded in 1996 at Rich Bitch Studios, and originally released as a double CD in 1997, the vinyl version of “The Pernicious Enigma” is available as a triple gatefold LP strictly limited to 600 copies and can be bought directly from the band’s Webstore at

Having never been completely satisfied with the original mix of “The Pernicious Enigma”, the Experimental Doomsters decided to transfer the album from the original multitrack tapes in order to be able to remix the tracks and bring out some of the details that had been buried or subdued in the original release.  The remixing and remastering was carried out during 2015/16 by ESOTERIC’s Greg Chandler at his Priory Studios ( ).  Now, without actually having changed the overall feel of the album, and with a level of clarity and definition that far surpasses the original, “The Pernicious Enigma” is much closer to the band’s original vision. Artwork is by Simon Phillips.

Only one more of ESOTERIC’s six full length albums  now remains to be released on vinyl, and it is anticipated that “Metamorphogenesis” will also appear in LP format in the future.

ESOTERIC are currently working on what will be their seventh full-length album, and a follow up to 2011’s critically acclaimed “Paragon of Dissonance”.  Eschewing any serious touring whilst they focus on the preparations and recording for the new album, the band are planning to play a few one-off shows and festivals this year.  Confirmed appearances to date as follows:

28th May: No Fun Intended, Eiger Studios, Leeds, UK
3rd June: Temples Festival, Bristol, UK
1st July:  Under the Black Sun Festival, Bornicke, Germany
15th Oct:  Autumn Souls of Sofia, Sofia, Bulgaria
