Catharsis "Samsara" cassette

This cassette came sealed when I bought it, couldn't resist to slice it open. It's the cassette version of the first Catharsis LP. This came out on Youth Culture, a label from Poland. A couple of years later than the recording of it, 1999 to be exact. The cover is actually a booklet with the lyrics and the last page is a flap for the back cover. Inside that booklet are the lyrics and the explanation of what Catharsis stands for. Unfortunately it's in Polish so I understand nothing of it. Although I did read the lyrics. The titles of the songs make you think the lyrics are of rich content, but actually they don't say that much. It's mostly imagery in which they describe their anarchist convictions and jagged visions. Submission to versus rebellion against the system and against religion also. I basically comes down to that, nothing more in eyes. Prove me wrong if you do not agree.

The music on the other hand is great and rich in variety, that's most likely the main reason why this became such a classic. Nonetheless I am happy to add this to my collection, It was on Discogs for ages, nobody bought it until I did.
