We've just launched a bandcamp page. At last. For folks looking to listen to our music or purchase what little merchandise we have, this is now an option. I'm sure we'll be making adjustments over the next few weeks as things come up, so please bear with us.

"The Light That Dwells in Rotten Wood" limited cassette has been released.

We are pleased to announce the impending release of "The Light That Dwells in Rotten Wood" on cassette via Eternal Warfare. Pre-orders are up now at Eternal Warfare and through our webstore. All orders will ship upon arrival.

Side B contains a bonus track entitled "All That Howling Fog" which was written during the "Light That Dwells" sessions but cut from the album, and re-recorded about a year ago. It clocks in around 12:30 and could be seen as our "heaviest" to date. This is the first appearance of this track on any format.

new shirt design available

At long last we have a new shirt design available. Our lot is in the mail as I write this and we'll be shipping out orders upon arrival. The design is a sketch by Winslow Homer entitled "Deer-Stalking in the Adirondacks in Winter" which appeared in the January 21, 1871 issue of the Boston-based Every Saturday newspaper. It is part of a series of nature prints centered around the Adirondack mountain region of New York.

As quoted from Every Saturday:

"On page 57 Mr. Winslow Homer presents an effective sketch of one aspect of winter sporting in the Adirondack Wilderness. When the snow is so deep as to hinder the deer, the sportsmen put on snow-shoes, which, if not as efficient propellers as the "seven-league boots," are quite as helpful in keeping the hunter out of the snow and enabling him to traverse the wilderness on its surface with a rapidity and noiselessness which are fatal to the deer. The readers of "Every Saturday" who feel the Nimrod instinct strong within them will appreciate the salient features of Mr. Homer's picture, and almost hear the baying of the deep-mouthed hounds as they overtake the game."

It's worth noting that the columnist assumed the figures in this sketch are "sportsmen," or outsiders drawn to the area for hunting and fishing opportunities. In reality it's a depiction of wilderness guides and subsistence hunters local to the region, whom Homer met on his trips to the Adirondacks.
.
Winslow Homer was and is an important figure in the Northeast, who resided and worked in Maine, more specifically the small town in which all four of us grew up, for the last 27 years of his life.

Available in sizes S, M, L, XL. Order at our STORE. A clearer photo will follow.
