“An Anthology Of Past Misfortunes” is Japanese pro-CD-R compilation of the first two Vision Éternel EPs; “Seul Dans L’obsession” (originally released on February 14th of 2007 through Mortification Records) and “Un Automne En Solitude” (originally released on March 14th of 2008 through Mortification Records). The compilation also includes three previously unreleased b-sides; two are from from the “Seul Dans L’obsession” recording session and one is from the “Un Automne En Solitude” recording session. The compilation was deliberately released exactly two years to the day that the first EP was released.
“An Anthology Of Past Misfortunes” was limited to a single pressing of one hundred copies. One hundred posters were also printed and given out for free to all the customers who pre-ordered the compilation in January and early February of 2009. Following the release of the compilation, the remaining posters were sold for $1 and bundled with orders of the CD.
