Digital-only split release between these two sonic monoliths. TenHornedBeast provide an abyssal howl of lingering textures and guitar-drone whilst Sigillum Dei work their alchemistry on a short sample of THB’s original to create a fog of radium clicks and mechanical rumblings.
Available now on the Ordo Pestilentia Bandcamp page for free stream and low-cost download.
Ehrenmal fur die Opfer der Arbeit…
Sigillum Dei’s ghost drone opus “There Is A Father In The Sky, There Is A Mother In The Ground” is now sold out at At War With False Noise and only a few copies of the tape remain in the Ordo’s vaults, so we have decided to make the track available for high-quality download on the Bandcamp site for only £3.
The download bundle also includes all twenty of the random insert images, only one of which was included with each of the tape versions.
Familiar notes on the Stars & Planets…
LVTHN’s ‘Black Lake’ is now sold out from both Ordo Pestilentia and Paradigms Recordings (but still available through the aether). If there are a few remaining in distros, we know not of them. In honour of this we’ve decided to make a recording that came from the same sessions as ‘Black Lake’, but one which eventually followed its own path to oblivion, available on the Ordo Pestilentia Bandcamp page as a free stream (or downloadable for an exceptionally fair price).
‘Empire In Flames’ sees a deviation from LVTHN’s forays into a fog-shrouded past and turns to the dust-caked present that so very nearly was. Some of the elements that make up this 28-minute track were eventually re-envisioned and pressed into service for subtle harmonics on ‘Black Lake’, but in this exclusive release they are allowed to follow their own bleak path.
“…listen carefully to these instructions, your life depends on how well you follow them…”
LVTHN’s ‘Black Lake’ is now sold out at the label, so we’ve made it available to stream and download from the Ordo Pestilentia Bandcamp page. The final few physical copies we have in stock are also available to purchase through Bandcamp.
“With LVTHN, Wraiths’ Gaendaal conducts a harrowing descent into the darkest abyss and is here inspired by the haunted shores and murky depths of Scotland’s ancient lochs to bring forth the Black Lake. 4 excursions into the unknown over 48 minutes. Presented in finely screen printed arigato pack and issued in a strict edition of 100 exemplars only.”
A hypnotic, unnerving yet strangely tranquil meditation upon the horrors that drift upon the wake…
