Gilead Media is proud to work alongside I, Voidhanger to present the long-awaited debut full-length from black metal project EIGENLICHT entitled SELF-ANNIHILATING CONSCIOUSNESS.

Since its inception in 2014, Eigenlicht has existed as an entity with reverence for the world both seen and unseen. Each member of the project has chosen a path dedicated to the study of either the natural world or the fundamental nature of knowledge and existence. Their music is built upon experiences of the past and a striving for knowledge to come. The band explains its origins thus:

“Eigenlicht arose from a failed pilgrimage, everything discarded and given to dissolution, no treasure to bring back and no nobility nor honor to salvage. But upon its opening that void immediately invited torrential winds, which assembled a collection of persons intimately bound by shared ideals and goals, at the opportune moment, in the nexus of our spiritual home in the valley of the Oracle. Thus a new direction was set and the process spontaneously fell into place. Each movement forward a self-overcoming, each a step toward inner nobility. Love and sentiment discarded into the crucible of roiling chaos. Seeking triumph even in failure, moving from impermanence to the eternal. Honoring loss as sacrifice, failure as wisdom; seeking a savage grace steeped in myth and a determination to ascend the slopes of sanguine gods.”

With its debut EP in 2015, Sacral Regicide, Eigenlicht began to draw the attention of many who hold an interest in underground U.S. black metal. This early impact was in some part due to the members’ previous work in Skagos, Fauna, Ekstasis, and other well-known projects throughout the Pacific Northwest. On SELF-ANNIHILATING CONSCIOUSNESS we see the work on Sacral Regicide standing as a foundation—but all aspects evolving with an impassioned urgency. Synth-laden dooming tones set the stage for an intense journey through a domain of ethereal black metal highlighted with majestic instrumentation to accompany the shrieking wails and chaos. A journey best described in the band’s own words:

“Self-Annihilating Consciousness is an exploration into the realm of gnosis that both illuminates and destroys, that draws out the truth of Being even as it ruptures our conceptions of Self and Other. Molded around a black metal core, it spills open at times into angular meditations, cosmic thralldom, and orgies of ecstatic metallic fervor. The album coheres around mind-altering revelations that bring a mirror to the invoker only to then shatter the reflection. Logos wrestles with Abyss in an eternal struggle over who will properly wield the blazing sword of intangible truth.”

The album will stand as a testament of discovery and enlightenment.

Self-Annihilating Consciousness was recorded at Dub Narcotic Studios by Ethan Camp in May 2016, mixed and mastered to tape by Pete deBoer at World Famous Studios in Denver in February 2017. All photography within the album’s packaging by Amjad Faur, who also executed the album’s layout with J. DeLacy.

The vinyl edition of this album will be presented as a gatefold 2LP. The gatefold jacket will contain a gold-foil stamp, and a limited number of copies will be available on metallic gold vinyl.

Eigenlicht is:
Yianna Bekris (guitar)
Ray Hawes (guitar/vocals)
Mara Winter (keyboards/vocals/flute)
J. DeLacy (drums)

Pre-order the LP now at the Gilead Media bandcamp: https://gileadmedia.bandcamp.com/album/lo-m

The most recent full-length LP from New York’s Krallice marks yet another distinct evolutionary leap in their recorded output, and includes vocals and synth by Dave Edwardson, who is most well known as the bassist of the legendary NEUROSIS.

Although still distinctly Krallice in sound, they once again prove their masterful ability to contort and twist their works into a new beast while maintaining a natural feeling of songwriting progression. Edwardson adds an entirely new element with his unmistakable, harsh vocals and atmospheric synth layers.

Loüm is presented with cover art by Carl Auge of His Hero Is Gone.

Presented as a single LP in a gatefold jacket with lyric sheet insert.

LOÜM
Dave Edwardson – Vocals and Synths
Colin Marston – Guitar
Lev Weinstein – Drums
Mick Barr – Guitar and Vocals
Nicholas McMaster – Bass and Vocals

Recorded May and August 2017 at Menegroth the Thousand Caves, Woodhaven Queens NYC by Colin Marston. thethousandcaves.com

Krallice – Go Be Forgotten LP

Pre-order now from Eroding Winds: https://erodingwinds.com/products/krallice-go-be-forgotten-lp

Pre-order now from the Gilead Media bandcamp: https://gileadmedia.bandcamp.com/album/go-be-forgotten

The Second of two full-length Krallice albums for end of 2017.

As we enter the new year we also approach the 10-year anniversary of the first Krallice full-length album. Their self-titled debut set the US metal world ablaze as it seemed to come from nowhere and make a distinguishing mark on North American Black Metal, and what it would become. This album touches upon that time, and the feeling of earlier Krallice records.

Presented as a single LP in a single pocket jacket with lyric sheet insert.

Download code included.

Colin Marston – Guitar
Lev Weinstein – Drums
Mick Barr – Guitar and Vocals
Nicholas McMaster – Bass and Vocals
