Recorded by Jané Krizaj known for producing most of Laibach’s material, Meta’s sessions took place in a basement studio located below a stadium. Then a part of Yugoslavia, the studio located in Slovenia was affordable but lacked many modern recording amenities so the band’s mission was to smuggle valuable equipment through in exchange for recording time. Riding the excitement, cultural experience, and friendship of Laibach born on the road and further fostered throughout the vibrant Ljubljana music scene and Croatian coast, Meta’s feel is an musical manifestation of the beautiful confusion of exploring new and unfamiliar.
Remastered and returned to its original vinyl format for the first time since 1988 through Dais, Meta flexes the songwriting muscle and spirit of the band’s second iteration, informed by an entirely different set of circumstance and vocabulary. Most importantly, the album’s nine tracks evolved the band’s sound and undeniable imprint on darkwave, shaping its very vocabulary and sonic identity past Europe and into fans looking below the surface for melody and meaning.
Dais is proud to present the first ever official reissue of this classic deathrock / darkwave masterpiece. Limited vinyl edition is repackaged from the original art assets, in 24 pt reverse board jackets with inner euro sleeves with lyrics.
