Enigma Le Roi Est Mort, Vive Le Roi! 180g Colored Vinyl LP
Enigma's complete catalogue receives a special colored vinyl makeover. Polydor/UNI presents The Colours Of Enigma – The Vinyl Series which offers all eight of the band's studio albums and the acclaimed hits package LSD Love Sensuality Devotion: The Greatest Hits as colored vinyl editions. Five of these albums will be released for the first time on vinyl: Le Roi Est Mort. Vive Le Roi (1996), The Screen Behind The Mirror (2000), Voyageur (2003), A Posteriori (2006) and Seven Lives Many Faces (2008). Only their debut MCMXC a.D. (1990), The Cross Of Changes (1993) and their latest album The Fall Of A Rebel Angel (2016) enjoyed releases on wax previously.
The original master tapes were used to forge brand new 2018 remasters allowing a superior sound experience enhanced for vinyl listening. Each album will be pressed on its own unique color 180g heavyweight vinyl LP while the LSD hits collection will come on double vinyl. The famous German designer, visual wizard and longtime Enigma art director Dirk Rudolph created a brand-new reinterpretation of the iconic Enigma artworks crafting a unique, limited edition and visually stunning series.
Enigma started as a studio project by multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter Michael Cretu in 1990 breaking out in a big way with their debut MCMXC a.D. which became a worldwide success and further refining its sound with the addition of world music elements on follow-up The Cross of Changes. Three years later, Le Roi est mort, vive le Roi! (French for "The King is dead. Long live the King!") was issued and once again explored familiar territory. There was Gregorian chant as well as Sanskrit and Vedic chants all crafted into the familiar Enigma sound.
With 70 million albums sold in all, over 60 No. 1 rankings across the world and more than 100 Platinum records later; Enigma is the most successful German music project of the last three decades. With a concept mixing atmospheric soundscapes, meditative beats, world music themes, fascinating vocal samples and mystical imagery, Enigma paved the way for electronic music bursting into the mainstream.
