This is the previously unreleased, one and only, LP of Swedish post-punk band MARIONET.
The long-lost tapes containing the album from 1985 have reemerged, been restored and remixed and finally, after 30 odd years, the album is about to be released on vinyl.
Produced and engineered by famous songwriters Peter Nordholm and Dille Diedricson, and remixed by Dan Johansson, the recordings now sound just the way MARIONET wanted them to sound: cool, dark, hard, sad and heavy. The album is a real gem of 80s dark rock.
So, MARIONET is back! This is Eternal Return.
MARIONET - hailing from Trollhättan, and later Gothenburg, Sweden. The band was paying their dues on the highway of rock through the greater part of the 80s.
In 1985 MARIONET recorded an album of twelve songs at Vivaldi Studios, produced and engineered by the famous songwriters Peter Nordholm and Dille Diedricson. Into these recordings were put a whole lot of effort, money and love. Still, for reasons lost in the mist of history, the album was never released.
MARIONET kept going for some years, touring Sweden and releasing a few 7” singles and cassettes. Over the years the tapes containing the album were misplaced, no-one really asking for them for quite a while anyway.
But lo and behold! In 2018 the long-lost tapes of the album reemerged from some dark corner in a forgotten part of the attic. Safe and sound, all four of them. Well, not totally playable at first, but successfully restored and remixed by the wizard Dan Johansson.
So this is where MARIONET´s at right now: Eternal Return, the mythical lost album from 1985, is sounding just awesome and is soon to be released on vinyl. Time is a flat circle!
