Album Notes
Just released on UW Records is the new and long awaited split CD between raw black metal legends Ophidian Forest and Hæresiarchs of Dis (Haeresiarchs Of Dis), combining early, unreleased, and demo material from each artist. Each of these bands brings their own unique and extreme approach to the genre; and though although stylistically different, come together well on this limited and very professionally packaged 6 panel digi-book release. This CD is meant to be heard in its entirety, focused on, from beginning to end, and preferably with the lights down low. The record flows with raw, foreboding energy and takes the listener on a very dark journey indeed, and leaves the listener wanting for more (which is good, considering each artist has three full length records recorded at this time). The Ophidian tracks are culled from an early multi-track recording effort to produce material for a split LP, which was shelved and never completed until now. The Dis tracks are taken in part from the original 'Dis' demo, which preceded the debut record 'Overture', in addition to five more tracks which are even earlier still, ranging from very early cassette recordings and ending in a majestically re-tooled incarnation of the 'Overture' track, 'Circle' (given it's original name, Circle of Sodomy, for this release). All of the material on this record was not only newly re-mastered; it was all newly mixed just for this release, and very little of it has ever been heard before outside the circle of the two respective bands. Over 70 minutes of powerful, kvlt black metal rarities; a true must-have and highly recommended. This release is limited edition to 1000 units worldwide, is never going to be re-pressed, and is never going to be released via any online retail digital media services; when it is gone into obscurity, then it is gone into obscurity! AS IT WAS MEANT TO BE!
