This awesome piece of kit comes in a sturdy black box with a debossed inverted cross in the centre. Its highly stylised, dystopian-like design and silver-gloss finish make for a striking display piece that’s emphasised by the black background, which is surprisingly resistant to smudges.

Inside the box is a large, sturdy matte poster of Papa Emeritus III proudly surrounded by his Nameless Ghouls; three glossy photographs of the band in a black envelope bearing a religious insignia; a 16-page art boo; one copy of the album on black 180 gram vinyl; and a bonus track titled “Zenith” pressed on a separate 10-inch single.
