Pre-orders: Anicon “Exegeses” LP and Thou “Peasant” CD re-issue

At long last we have two new Gilead Media releases available for pre-order. One new album from Anicon, and one Thou reissue that has been a long time coming. Remember, Eroding Winds is the official source for all Gilead Media mailorder, so this is the place to lay claim to a copy of each for your collection.

“A masterpiece of modern usbm that not only displays anicon’s full potential, but black metal’s as well.” – Decibel Magazine 8/10 review

“The players’ fervor, their fury; you can hear it in each member’s performance. Every ounce of “Amber” conveys what the rest is getting at. And true, bits of it are abstract, complex, insert your word here. The music, the whole, that feeling though, interprets it better than words or images.” – Stereogum

““Exegeses” already is on the short list of the best music put out so far in this middle-aged 2016, and it’s easily one of the most satisfying black metal records that have crawled out of any land during that time” – Meat Mead Metal (chosen as Pick Of The Week”

This summer we welcome another project that has long been on our radar, Brooklyn black metal band Anicon. Although we already considered them to be sort of extended family (drummer Lev Weinstein is a part of Krallice while bassist Alexander DeMaria performs as part of the Yellow Eyes live lineup) we are none-the-less quite pleased to welcome Anicon as a proper part of the label family as they join us to present their first full-length album, Exegeses.

Founding members Nolan Voss and Owen Rundquist began writing material together for this project in 2010, at that time planning to name their first EP Anicon while the project itself would remain nameless, allowing the EP to stand as a singular expression. Quickly the project developed into a full band that began writing more material, so the Anicon name would be repurposed.

Exegeses is the result of constant writing over the course of two years. And although other material was written and recorded through this time, the pieces chosen for the album were selected to work together as a single statement, similar to the original EP but in a significantly more developed fashion. The works on Exegeses represent what is very much a new stage for Anicon. Though they are thoroughly rooted in the US black metal sound, their style reaches further into the realm of the more technical. Favoring elaborately composed pieces that still retain every bit of fury and visceral energy that black metal is fundamentally founded upon.

The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Colin Marston at Menegroth in November 2015. It will be presented as a gatefold LP with stunning photography by Kari Greer. A digital download code will be included. The vinyl has an expected release date of July 2016, while a CD edition will be released simultaneously in Europe via Avantgarde Music. All LPs on black vinyl.

THOU – PEASANT CD (re-mastered / re-issue)

Pre-order now: HERE

The second full-length album from Thou, finally re-mastered and re-issued after 5 years out of print. This reissue has been meticulously reconstructed, with new and expanded artwork, and packaged in a thick gatefold jacket in the same style as all other Thou full-length CDs released by Gilead Media.

Originally released by Autopsy Kitchen records in 2008, this sophomore full-length is a distinct stage in Thou’s discography that bridges the creative gap between their debut, Tyrant, and heavily-praised third full-length, Summit.

Recorded and mixed in 2007 by Brennan Moss and Michael Talley. Painstakingly re-mastered in 2014 by Adam Tucker.
