"Tragiedia Wg Post Regiment" means "Tragiedia According To Post Regiment" and is sort of a tribute to Tragiedia band, who ceased to exist a long time ago without releasing any records. The album consists of just Tragiedia's songs recorded by Post Regiment and two members of Tragiedia (the last original Tragiedia line up was: Amoniak, Goryl, Faruś and Artur Marek).
The CD came out on QQRYQ while the LP was a collective effort of Wai Aye, Skuld Releases and Profane Existence. LP comes with lyric insert.
