Goatpsalm / Horthodox - Ash
Last updated: 9 September 2021

 

 

GOATPSALM & HORTHODOX - ASH

We have fled from the shroud of deception that you have draped across the ruins of our traditions, your subtle twisting of the holy words and gestures that have sustained us through an eternity of winters. Here, beneath the trees, on hard ground cleared of snow we shall find our burning gateway to redemption. We Old Believers see the devil in your details, how Satan crawls serpent-like in the shadows of your obfuscation. I see the end of all things in your distorted presentation of the cross and so I take myself, my children and my love, into the flames. As we burn I sense that heaven is near, just beyond the pain, and in the screams of my little ones I hear the voices of angels. I make the sign of the cross – two fingers raised, not three – and drink deeply of the smoke; inhaling our immolation and salvation.

Goatpsalm and Horthodox are brothers in spirit, both explorers of the darkness. Goatpsalm wander through the lost and forgotten dreams of fallen civilisations, the obscure knowledge of past days and broken gods, while Horthodox pierce the shadows cast by the many arcane rituals and impenetrable words of Christian orthodoxy. In one moment of history their paths met, joined and entwined...and Ash was born. The Raskolor, or schism, of the Russian Orthodox Church in the 17th Century, when the Zealots Of Piety clashed with the Old Believers and families fled their homes and even walked into fire as they saw the end of the world approaching. This sundering of a nation was brought about by such small twists in doctrine as how many ‘hallelujahs’ it was proper to pronounce in honour of their god. Together, Goatpsalm and Horthodox have invoked the spirit of that age, the weight of centuries of faith, the mysteries bound within the practices of religion and the binding power of words and inherited belief. Both time and place are captured in the meditative, hypnotic echoes of ‘Here Is Our Salvation’...an unsettling presence nestles in the wailing pipes of ‘God Remained Still’. This is a haunted album that summons the ghosts of past generations to gather around the firelight and hear its tale. Such compelling power resounds in the captivating tones of ‘A House With No Windows’ and the souls of those who embraced the flames for their god drift on the cold winds of ‘Night Over Onega’. Wonderful implements like the Rozhuk, an ancient, wooden Russian trumpet and the Gusli, one of the oldest of all stringed instruments, help to bring transporting atmosphere to an album like no other. Incredibly affecting and utterly remarkable, Ash is something beyond our everyday experience – a gift for which we should be immensely grateful.

 

Despite the splendour of both Goatpsalm and Horthodox’s individual back catalogues, this marriage between the two occult forces has created something even greater than the sum of its parts. When Ash is released on six panel digipack by Aesthetic Death on 01 October and cassette by Death Scream Recordings it will consume you; draw your soul inexorably into its world of forest, firelight and shadow. Step back in time with Goatpsalm and Horthodox, peer beneath a veil of secrets and taste the darkness of utter and absolute devotion.

The Slumbering
Last updated: 24 August 2021

Following a long term collaboration and respect for the work of Clint Listing -  the countless excellent projects he has been involved with over the years and his dedication to dark music and underground culture - I am pleased to be working with him again on his latest project - THE SLUMBERING

Aesthetic Death will be releasing the debut album "Looking For Sorrow Within One's Fears" - which is a wonderful mesh of melody, rhythm and noise. Often sounding to me like a noisier/obscured version of "Iso-erotic callibrations" era T.A.G.C - an album which I first heard over 25 years ago and is still fresh and relevant today.

Planned release date is later in 2021

Into 2022 The Slumbering will be releasing their 2nd album on excellent UK label Trepanation Recordings - an album which takes the sounds of The Slumbering to even greater places and depths. Wonderful.

Demo/Promo submission
Last updated: 13 August 2021

Existing as a label, focusing solely on physical media, certainly isn't easy these days....and the whole concept of running an underground label, with those core principles and values, is slowly ebbing away.
Suffice to say there is a deep paradox.....even within extreme and underground music/culture.

Aesthetic Death is far from being a "business" or a "job" - therefore, everything takes time, whether it's putting out releases, or simply responding to emails!!
So, to give people a heads up about sending me demo/promo material for potential release - please read on.....

- I'm always looking for interesting bands - and have always had a focus on supporting new/obscure underground acts.
- I already have a heavy release schedule, which will take me well into 2022.

Having said that, if you think your music is suited to Aesthetic Death,  then I’ll be more than happy to give it a proper listen and some consideration.

To save time, then this is how I accept submissions:
- I do not listen to anything online or via download. For me to listen to your music seriously then please send me a cdr. 
- Don't ask me to listen in any other fashion - as I can't.


Keep supporting physical media and underground culture.

Five years since the acclaimed doom/death of “Ectoplasm” – Suffer Yourself have returned with their latest offering “Rip Tide”.

there was a time when all I wondered was how the molds of men were formed 
with a catalyst as thin as water 
there is a need for something rough to shape the very shell that forms what's within 
but with a shell so thick in beauty we can lose track of what's inside 
since we already washed our hands of grime with its lye there's no escaping the modern thoughts of men

Funeral Chasm - join forces with AD

I am happy to announce that I will be working with Danish funeral doom act - FUNERAL CHASM - on the release of their debut album

Expect a cd release by March 2021 

The release of Funeral Chasm's album will be part of four exceptional doom albums I am fortunate enough to be releasing in the next 5 months. Those albums - from HALLOWED BUTCHERY (US), MOURNING DAWN (FRA), SUFFER YOURSELF (SWE/UKR) + FUNERAL CHASM (DEN) - really are some of the most innovative, powerful and beautiful doom albums that I've heard in recent years. This really is an exciting period in the life of Aesthetic Death.

 

Intaglio - s/t LP - released Nov 15th
Last updated: 21 October 2020

I'm very pleased to be collaborating (in a small way) in the forthcoming vinyl issue of the 2005 debut from INTAGLIO - which has been completely re-worked and improved for this new vinyl edition. Release date - November 15th 2020

A reimagined version of the self-titled debut "Intaglio" album originally released in 2005. The new version contains parts and sounds that were not included in the original version of the album, which is now in their place as originally intended. Every second of all the original source tracks underwent restoration and processing using top-class digital and analog equipment. Moreover, for the new version of the album, all drum parts were live recorded, without the use of triggering and sampling technologies, which is very rare nowadays. The album was restored and remixed by Evgeny Semyonov (When Nothing Remains, Woe Unto Me, Sorrowful Land) at Slow Burn Studio, mastering was performed by Mika Jussila (Shape Of Despair, Isole, Unholy, Moonspell) at Finnvox Studios.

 

Ignis Gehenna - new album
Last updated: 21 October 2020

Aesthetic Death is one of the distributors of the excellent new IGNIS GEHENNA album - which is released on 1st Novemeber.

Buy direct from the "shop" on this site.

 

Ignis Gehenna returns with it's sophomore album 'Rites of Transvaluation'. A quaturnite Janus face peering back into the fires of the past, toward the darkness of the future- all the while earthed as a threshold of serpent fire light in flux between them. Weaving a style where barbarity, obscurity and melody meld amidst a further delving into unhinged atmosphere.

 

'Rites of Transvaluation' was predominantly written and recorded in the same sessions as the debut 'Baleful Scarlet Star'. Neither album has a concurrent concept though both are intrinsically interwoven through time, space and intent.

Digipak CD release with eminent artwork by Vhan Artworks and Sinister Emanations Art. Released under the auspices of the band's label Aeon of Fire Music and available in the United Kingdom through Aesthetic Death

 

Farer - Monad - digisleeve CD
Last updated: 7 October 2020

 

I’m very pleased to announce a collaboration with the excellent Dutch doom act FARER

This sees the renewal of long term contacts, as FARER feature members of ORTEGA – who worked previously with Aesthetic Death. Plus “Monad” is jointly released with our friends at TARTARUS Recs who are taking charge of the tape version.

More info below.

 

 

Hailing from the Netherlands, doom/noise trio FARER conspire with Tartarus Records and Aesthetic Death to release “Monad”, the band’s first album, on November 20th 2020.

FARER create an imposing discord of severe, caustic bass textures, harrowing vocals and winding drums. The band, featuring members of Ortega, was originally founded as MENHIR in 2013, but chose FARER as their new moniker mid 2019, after spending two and a half years of writing and recording their debut record "Monad". By taking time to further explore the possibilities of being a band with two bass players and the absence of a guitar, the album exhibits the bands evolution into a new entity. Resulting in carefully crafted, drawn-out, oppressive and compelling songs.

Traversing the absolute – "Monad" is a testament to suffering. Heavy grinding riffs and deep pulsating rhythms; a restless stirring. Amidst all these layers we hear the human voice as a primal wordless scream – the shock of being. We feel the dissonance of forces vying for existence and the harmony of lightless oblivion. Whispers of unfathomable truths emerge from the static.

FARER presents a tactile experience of the grim and brutal cycle of creation and destruction. There is desperation and anger, but above all a greater comprehension of the eternal patterns reverberating through flesh. The relentless driving layers of crushed sound offer no respite. In resonance is the movement of great mass. The vocals are brutally honest and raw. Complex and utterly bleak. A confrontation with the void.

Out of nothing, nothing becomes.
 

FARER is:

Frank de Boer - Bass/Vocals

Arjan van Dalen -  Bass/Vocals

Sven Jurgens - Drums/Percussion

Mourning Dawn - new album
Last updated: 29 August 2020

 

after years of turmoil.....years which might have destroyed other people.....those years have culminated in "Dead End Euphoria", the new album from French extreme doom act - MOURNING DAWN
One of the few bands which get darker and heavier as the years pass - using the negatives in life as a force to create and compose with such majesty and passion for the dismal.

The album is now at press and will be available by the end of 2020 - on digi CD and gatefold 2LP

Violenta Domestica - Cephalaea cd
Last updated: 29 August 2020

I'm very pleased to be collaborating with the exciting and hugely creative artist - Dr Winter - on the release of his debut full length album, under the monicker VIOLENTA DOMESTICA

The music of VIOLENTA DOMESTICA is termed as "experimental electronic musick" - which is indeed an appropriate defintion. The music is often poignant, often disturbing, often twisted....but always creative and thought provoking.

My admiration for this work is probably born from a passion in years past for the music from acts such as GGFH, Velvet Acid Christ, HH9 etc.... Merging and moving between ambience, driving ebm industrial rhythms, towards piling noise and sinister intention.

Focusing on the darker and twisted side of human nature - there is something for all in "Cephalaea". Expand those horizons - check this out.

Lycaean Triune tape releases....
Last updated: 14 August 2020

AD is now stocking all tape releases from the excellent Alaskan tape label - Lycaean Triune

Bands involving some members of Yaldabaoth and Arria Paetus

Malsumis - 'Spirit Decay' Tape
https://malsumis.bandcamp.com/album/spirit-decay

 
"Written in homage to their surrounding landscape, the Alaskan group Malsumis possess a sound similar in atmosphere to that of Drudkh and classic Enslaved, but channeled through a decidedly more aggressive path. Within a mere six tracks, the full force of Malsumis' vision is felt, an attack both beautiful and biting."
 
They Leapt From Burning Windows - 'Demo 2020'
https://theyleapt.bandcamp.com/album/demo-2020
 
"Conjured from cold winds and grey days, They Leapt From Burning Windows emerge again to debut 6 tracks of raw melodic black metal tinged with longing and hate. Composed & recorded at the Unsafe Space in Anchorage, Alaska over the course of four long winters, this demo finds the band documenting the various feelings evoked by that dark season, from the descent of life into ice, to the frozen isolation that falls along with the snow."
 
Heel - 'Foreign Tongues'
https://thisisnotaheel.bandcamp.com/album/foreign-tongues

 

"Featuring members of the Lycaean Triune, fellow Alaskan band Heel unleash their grinding hardcore with as much vitriol and hate as possible. For fans of Kickback, Integrity, & Rot In Hell. Self-released by Heel."
