Wildwood / The Nightside CD
2CD Digipak including 4-track bonus CD "The Nightside" EP.
Wildwood is a dark, haunting work that bridges the gap between Atmospheric Metal, NeoFolk, driving Punk, & Dark Ambient/Experimental music. This is a commentary on human nature using Hermetic, Elemental, & Animal imagery—sometimes metaphorically, sometimes not. Sometimes universally, sometimes personally. These ideas are reflected musically by placing emphasis on more ‘wooden’ sounding instruments in an attempt to create an earthy, dense, and grounded vibe. The other instruments serve as substance & ethereal sky to create balance. As above, so below.
The Nightside EP was originally released in an edition of 50 as part of the Seraphim House release of the special edition of Wildwood. It is a somber, poised, and atmospheric counterpoint to Wildwood’s dense and sometimes abrasive sound.
For fans of Alcest, Les Discrets, Amebix, Current 93, Burzum, Ulver’s black metal ‘trilogy’, & Danzig/Samhain.
Originally released in 2012 by New England art collective Seraphim House. Now reissued as a double LP and double CD set by Germany’s wayward metal and dark folk label Prophecy Productions.
