WHY SUPPORT SARCOFAGUS?

SARCOFAGUS has never been - and never will be - about money but the new “BACK FROM THE VALLEY OF THE KINGS” DVD is an ambitious project, just like the “Moottorilinnut” (Motorbirds) Album and Video of 1982. 

Ambitious projects take a lot of time (= money) and as SARCOFAGUS is an underground band which does not make any money, funding this massive project is very complicated. So far all the funding (=time) for the DVD has come from me (Kimmo) & Tanja. To speed up things we need your help!


HOW TO SUPPORT SARCOFAGUS AND BECOME A PART OF THE PROJECT

On the right side of this page you can see all the options for supporting the band! When you support the band you will immediately get the “BACK FROM THE VALLEY OF THE KINGS” DIGITAL DOWNLOAD (we’ll email you the download link) .

The CD and CD/DVD will be released in September/October 2013. We cannot set exact release date for The CD/DVD but the more we can afford to spend time on this the quicker it will happen. We will keep all supporters up to date with its progress. At present I’m editing the “Metallinen Sateenkaari” (Metallic Rainbow) and “Wheels Of Destruction” videos.


NOTE! This is an exclusive project that you can only take part in here. 
No record labels or distribution companies are involved.

ONLY PEOPLE WHO PRE-ORDER THE CD OR CD/DVD WILL GET COPIES. THERE WILL BE NO EXTRA COPIES AVAILABLE.





ABOUT THE “BACK FROM THE VALLEY OF THE KINGS” CD AND CD/DVD

The “BACK FROM THE VALLEY OF THE KINGS” Album was recorded in a ONE DAY studio session in 2010. Sarcofagus had only played 4 times  together (one rehearsal and 3 gigs) before the studio session. The idea was to get a fresh “live” and original 80s feel to the recording to do justice to the songs and STAY TRUE to the originals.

FULL ALBUM LENGTH FILM


When we performed live and recorded in studio in 2010, we filmed everything with 2 HD video cameras. We also filmed a lot of behind the scenes footage and I kept a video diary about the colourful events surrounding the re-union after 30 years! We have been gathering amazing footage for the film from around the world: pyramids, boneyards, ancient sites, occult, magical landscapes ....


The Film, as you would expect from Sarcofagus, will be something different and surreal!

In the video we also return to the original occult, magical and Egyptian world where the Sarcofagus started!

I am making the 13 Music Films to depict what I had in mind while making the songs in the 80s.


Working on this Sarcofagus “Back From The Valley Of The Kings” project has been a chance for me to create something unconventional. This is why I want to do this directly with you, the people who like Sarcofagus and have been telling me how our songs have influenced you!


I prefer to have total creative freedom to do these CD and  CD/DVD my way rather than having to negotiate with a record label.


NOW you can join us and really BE PART and INFLUENCE the outcome of this new Sarcofagus adventure!




EXTRA BONUS TRACKS WITH ANY “BACK FROM THE VALLEY OF THE KINGS” PURCHASE


I do listen to you guys! Many came to me in Finland and asked why we didn’t have “Envoy Of Death, “Deadly Game’ and “Die To Win” on our set list. Over Christmas time I recorded guitar parts for these three songs. In true Sarcofagus spirit, these bonus songs will have a surprise lineup of cool Finnish Metal Musicians, led by mighty Tapio Wilska (Survivors Zero, Sethian, Ex-Finntroll, Ex-Soulgrind, Ex-Wizzard).


THESE TRACKS WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE AS DIGITAL DOWNLOADS TO PEOPLE WHO JOIN US ON THIS QUEST.


THE CD’S AND CD/DVD’S BACK COVER ARTWORK IS USED IN THE BACKGROUND OF THIS PAGE. TO SEE MORE ARTWORK USE THE MENU IN THE UPPER LEFT CORNER.
