Laibach celebrating 40th anniversary with ‘Revisited’ version of their debut album (listen)
Long-running Slovenian industrial / electronic group Laibach are celebrating their 40th anniversary this year and have released a new box set, titled Revisited. It contains their 1985 self-titled debut, remastered and expanded with bonus tracks, plus the "Revisited" version, which they recorded in Germany in 2010 and features new interpretations of songs from their debut plus bonus tracks. There's also a live album that was recorded in 2012 in the Velenje Coal Mines, some 200 meters below the surface of the Earth, plus extensive liner notes, a 160-page book, a poster, button/badge and more.
