For the first time in a decade, Lycia's 1993 album A Day in the Stark Corner is back in print on Projekt, now remastered with a bonus outtake from the original sessions. On the follow-up to Ionia, Mike Van Portfleet continues his pursuit of an apocalyptic landscape of extremes in which rich gothic guitars and intense rhythms divulge a world of bleak desperation; with that unmistakeable unnerving whispered voice. Peter Steele of Type-O Negative said about Stark Corner: "Such simple hypnotic beats, everything is drowned in reverb. Yet, the emotion comes through so loud and clear.
A Day in the Stark Corner's strengths lay in the fact that is it mainly the creation of one man's vision. It's intensely personal but fulfillingly listenable all at once, as if you lifted a heavy curtain from a view you may have seen but never truly looked at before. There may be depression or there may be annihilation, but ultimately you are there discovering it all with Mike assuming the role of your own personal, somber Charon.

Not for nothing does the cover art feature someone dressed as Christ with a crown of wires in the desert of Arizona, where Vanportfleet lived at the time

The last album is called A Day in the Stark Corner. I would like our next album to sound something like this. It is the most depressing thing I've ever heard in my life I'm useless for the rest of the day. It makes me feel like killing myself. It's like, why even bother getting dressed when I can just slit my wrists. Such simple hypnotic beats. Everything is drowned in reverb, yet the emotion comes through so loud and clear. It's just devastatingly beautiful, as beautiful as it is devastating
