Sold Out!

The Raymen - Death's Black Train (Toedlein Edition)

The «Toedlein Edition» comes in a handprinted, 19.40 oz, 3-color silk screened sleeve. Limited of only 25 copies on black vinyl. You can order this version only at Hound Gawd! Records.

You can pull the Raymen logo up and open the sleeve to the top. Closing the sleeve is done most easily when you put it over the «Toedlein», which was made by german artist Steffen Lenk.

The «Toedlein» is a medieval Vanitas Symbol and represents the impermanence of all terrestrial and transitory. It was worn for memorials for the dead. The skull was made of buffallo horn, the coffin made of wood and different textiles. The Toedlein has gotten its special patina by painting with ashes.

Limit 1 per order, if you order more than 1, we will send 1 and keep the extra dough.
