    Disjecta Membra formed in Hamilton, New Zealand, in December of 1993, and Achromaticia was the group’s début full-length album, on Melbourne, Australia’s Heartland Records in 1997. New Zealand already had a long history of important contributions to the dark post-punk canon, but Achromaticia marked the first (and perhaps only) time a New Zealand band achieved international cult status and widespread acclaim within the unabashedly Goth scene.

    Long out of print, surviving copies of the original pressing have been known to sell on eBay and discogs for upwards of $US100. To commemorate the album’s twentieth anniversary, Achromaticia is about to become available on disc for the first time in well over fifteen years.

    Never to be repeated, the Achromaticia: Twentieth Anniversary Edition is a deluxe, limited edition of 500 individually hand-numbered 3-CD sets, accompanied by a 12-page booklet, and brought together in a specially customised 8-panel card wallet softpak.

    The collection contains the original album on Disc I, accompanied by two 70+ minute discs of early demos, live performances, studio out-takes, compilation appearances and previously unreleased tracks; and yet another album-length digital download of rarities from the same period.

    Painstakingly compiled over the latter half of 2017, these bonus contents document the group’s progression from the first rudimentary garage demos in early 1994, through to the album’s release and subsequent Achromaticia New Zealand Tour of 1997.

    A rare opportunity to own a piece of underground music history.

    PLEASE NOTE that the digital download of Achromaticia (below) does NOT contain the bonus material featured on the Twentieth Anniversary 3-CD set.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Achromaticia via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
