Es reiten die Toten so schnell

"Es reiten die Toten so schnell" (or: the Vampyre sucking at his own Vein) ("The Dead ride so fast"; usually referred to as "Es reiten die Toten so schnell") is the title of Darkwave band Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of Shadows' eighth album. It was released in 2003. For "Es reiten die Toten so schnell", Anna-Varney went back to her demo of the same title from 1989 and re-recorded all of the tracks from it. The rest of the album consists of re-recordings of the bonus tracks from her first album "...Ich töte mich jedesmal aufs Neue, doch ich bin unsterblich, und ich erstehe wieder auf; in einer Vision des Untergangs...", along with a handful of new songs. "Birth - Fiendish Figuration", a staple track from her first album, appears again on its fourth incarnation on a record.

"Es reiten die Toten so schnell" (or: the Vampyre sucking at his own Vein) was released in multiple formats. An A5-sized CD book edition of 1999 copies was released, along with a double-LP edition (with two picture-vinyl records, a poster, postcards, a t-shirt, communion wafers and authenticated graveyard soil) of 666 signed and numbered copies.
