Catharsis Discography: Digital Download


The digital version of the complete Catharsis discography, Light from a Dead Star, is now available online for downloading for just $10.

We have gone to great lengths to produce a definitive, comprehensive collection. The discography includes their debut 7”, the “Samsara” and “Passion” LPs, the split LPs with Gehenna and Newborn, and the final Catharsis song, “Absolution, ” recorded alongside “Arsonist’s Prayer” in their last session but never released–altogether totaling well over two hours of music. All the lyrics, manifestos and artwork for all the releases are also included, along with zine interviews, video footage, and posters, fliers, and handouts from various eras of the band’s existence.

Music files are available in both 256kpbs VBR AAC [289MB] & 192kbs MP3 [219MB]. All songs were remastered with a very light touch, encoded from the original files, and have complete metadata including album art and the song’s lyrics. Supplemental materials [493MB] are high-resolution PDFs and JPEGs and the video is a 688×512 H.264 MP4 file.

The 4-LP discography sets have sold out; we will send them out as soon as the vinyl arrives.

  1. I totally missed the boat on the the box set. Any chance of a repress or was that a one shot only situation?

  2. Well, I have all Catharsis stuff in LP already for years… So… any chance of getting the “Absolution” track for free without having to pay for the whole digital thing? Thanks

  3. I remember way back that a friend told me that Catharsis cancelled their show in my town. I thought it was a joke and didn’t care much about it. Until I read my email and a member of the band confirbed the news to me.
    Still today I regret I haven’t seen this band live. ‘Cause the impact they had on my life.
    May them nerver rest in peace and make people think about their life and their contribution to this world.

  4. I had all the Catharsis records plus some obscure stuff (like the demo, which i notice didn’t even make this collection!), and still bought this. Totally worth it to get high quality digital versions of the stuff I had, plus all the killer stuff I didn’t.
    Found some rarities hidden away in the folders and have a question for anyone who can answer: what session/release are these Sick People and …In Solitary tracks from? Weird cover art i’ve never seen before and dated as 1996? It was cool to find them hidden away but now I need to know where to put them! :)

  5. Also, ‘Communist-Marxist-Leninist’ asking for shit for free is a joke right? I’m not sure my fragile sense of hope for the world could take that being real…
