Years in the making, fraught with difficulty and still, even now, a bearer of bad blood and woeful tidings but Magpie & Raven is undoubtedly the most accomplished project Wraiths have been involved in as Pyramids, under the guiding eye of R Loren, manage to snatch a fragile beauty from the filth-smeared maw of Wraiths’ vileness…
Originally released on vinyl and tape by Aurora Borealis, Magpie & Raven is now available as a digital edition.
INCLUDED WITH THIS DOWNLOAD; the original Wraiths recording that forms the foundation of the track in both its edited and 50-minute full-length versions. These tracks were created from sound samples, provided by Pyramids and subsequently played through manual manipulation of a broken tape-player.
“Come here,” he said. “And I’ll give your flesh to the birds.” – 1 Samuel 17:44.
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…
Absolute minimal drone created from restricted and restructured sound sources. Released through At War With False Noise on strictly limited cassette, now available for purchase and stream via the Ordo Pestilentia bandcamp page.
“Sigillum Dei is a project by Gaendaal of Wraiths which builds on singular sound sources and creates something entirely new and often beautifully haunting from them. 45 minutes of minimalist textural drone bliss, a tidal ebb and flow of waveforms creating a truly haunting ambient soundscape.“

The final copies of both the vinyl and cassette versions are now available through the Ordo Pestilentia shop, along with an aetheric distillation. All versions come with Wraiths’ previously-unheard original submision to the project in both its edited and full-length versions. More details on the shop page.

Sigillum Dei contributed a track to Rainbow Bridge’s Minimalism & Juxtaposition online compilation back in July 2012. Fifty artists were each asked to submit a five minute track of minimalist sound and the label explanation outlines the rest;
“This is a compilation of minimal tracks submitted by nearly 50 different experimental artists from around the globe. These 2 to 5-layer tracks were mixed, matched and layered by Justin Marc Lloyd. Besides light mastering, none of the submitted sounds were altered during the collaging process.”
The result is a startling impressive collection of innovative works from the improvisational underground.
We thought, however, that it might be interesting to make Sigillum Dei’s original piece available.
Intentionally minimal sound content.
The digital Ordo Pestilentia store is now open, with many new and old Ordo-related items available. Now we start work on the physical store, which will include many rarities from the archives.
