The new album will be available as a special limited double CD edition with a slipcase. However, this version of the CD will only be available on store’s initial orders of the album… so once their stock is gone, that’s it, no more double CD slipcase version. The 2nd CD will contain 5 demos (that were done for this record), the live video for ‘The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears’, the new video for ‘Imperium’ and footage that was filmed during the recording of ‘Through The Ashes Of Empires’.
