The Spirals Of Great HarmCold Spring
CSR 225 CD
***The Spirals of Great Harm is the new sprawling double disc from black noise classicists SKULLFLOWER—referencing Inferno XVII, Dante and Virgil's spiraling descent into the abyss on demon Geryon. Full of harsh beauty and hymns for lost Albions, battle songs against the homogenization of modern "lyfe"—fuck the new estate! Skullflower on The Spirits of Great Harm: "Hedgerows, tapestries, dream woods, dragon lands. After Draconis, we have been released to roam through the multiverse, fashioning trinkets and ornaments from jewelled sounds, and leaving them as waymarkers on our astral travels. We seem to be circling, encountering familiar territories, yet always changed, because these circles, from a true perspective; are all part of a great averse spiral, our pattern, our map, which is the terrain itself. You will hear hints and echoes of native keening, lush prog romanticism, and the charcoal textures of noise, but all subsumed within our alchemy, the unmistakable wellspring of sound that is SF." Comes in a six-panel digipak.
