Before Nucleus Torn will go down into the history of all those insiders’ tips that have been wrongfully discounted and underestimated, Schnyder not only completes his work with “Neon Light Eternal“, but also presents a retrospective of decadent grandeur in the shape of “Blowing Up the Entire World (Explosions 1997 – 2015)” as a lush and extremely limited edition of only 187 copies: Three DVDs will cover Nucleus Torn’s entire oeuvre in new high-quality stereo and 5.1 DTS surround mixes specifically created by Schnyder for this release. Apart from all six albums and three EPs, “Blowing Up the Entire World” exclusively contains the two EPs “A Promise of Sunlight” and “Waywaters“, featuring more than 50 minutes of unreleased music. These complete works come in a large format hardcover book with 96 pages. Besides a detailed chronology of Nucleus Torn and all major images from the band’s history, it offers interviews the tongue-in-cheek master conducted with himself, reflecting his creativity in a very entertaining manner.
With Nucleus Torn, nothing has ever been “normal”, and the musical conclusion “Neon Light Eternal” as well as this lavish DVD collection are once more testament to this. With reference to the title of this encompassing release, Schnyder leaves us with a blast that will fall on the sympathetic ears of enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike. “Blowing Up the Entire World (Explosions 1997 – 2015)” 3-DVD Artbook will be released by Prophecy Productions on the 6th of November 2015 and you can pre-order it here.
