Originally released in 2016, the original 23-minute Beyond the Celestial Realms largely introduced CRYPTIC SHIFT to the wider metal underground. While a couple demos and EPs preceded the record, Beyond the Celestial Realms was the UK quartet’s first major recording, revealing the mesmerizing mastery of their vintage-yet-fresh tech-thrash. And while the 2020 debut album Visitations from Enceladus blew minds far and wide and truly put CRYPTIC SHIFT’s name on the metal map, Beyond the Celestial Realms has been sought after as a crucial puzzle-piece for their ever-growing legions of fans.

Allied again with BLOOD HARVEST, who released that momentous debut album, CRYPTIC SHIFT now offer Return to Realms – a unique configuration of Beyond the Celestial Realms. The vinyl version includes the bonus track “Entombed in Flesh,” from the 2016 demo recording session, but previously unreleased on physical format. Included with the vinyl will be a download card which includes a total of 10 songs: all the songs appearing on the vinyl as well as the rest of the 2016 demo recording session. The CD and tape versions include all 10 songs. To coincide with the release of Return to Realms, BLOOD HARVEST will be doing a vinyl re-press of Visitations from Enceladus, now featuring different cover artwork, on the same date. Space is the place, so no better time to Return to Realms with CRYPTIC SHIFT!
