about

Doom bands Lycanthia and Atten Ash have collaborated to deliver a new limited split 7" this winter. Featuring “The Harbinger” for Lycanthia, and “City in the Sea” for Atten Ash, this split will serve as a prelude to each band's forthcoming full-length albums as well as present a very first vinyl release for everyone involved! There will only be 300 copies printed with 140 available for sale through Hypnotic Dirge Records. This vinyl comes with a sleeve insert featuring band information as well as three stickers!

On Side B is Atten Ash. A three-piece atmospheric/melodic death-doom band from North Carolina, Atten Ash is the creation of founding member James Greene whose intention with the project was to create something heavier and more colorful with attention to nuance and emotion. Being a multi-instrumentalist, James was able to record the foundations of the songs, giving a clear picture of the powerful nature of the music. Demos slowly took form. In 2011 James began collaborating with Barre Gambling (founding guitarist of Daylight Dies) and Archie Hunt (vocalist/guitarist of Legion of the Fallen) and the trio continued the musical work: arranging songs, establishing vocal patterns, writing lyrics and guitar solos.

With their full-length album “The Hourglass” already recorded in 2012 though not yet officially released, Atten Ash will present the track “City in the Sea” on their side of the 7” split as the introduction to their band and first official release serving as a prelude to the release of “The Hourglass” to follow shortly.

lyrics

lyrics adopted from the poem 'City in the Sea' by Edgar Allen Poe

Lo Death has reared himself a throne
the shadow city lies alone
No rays from the heavens down
On the long night of town

light from out the lurid sea
Streams up silently
up spires, up kingly halls
like Babylon's walls

There shrines, palaces and towers
undisturbed, by lifting winds forgot
Resigned beneath the sky
The melancholic waters lie.

There open fanes and gaping graves
Yawn with luminous waves
not the jewels that there lie
In each idol's diamond eye

No swellings tell that winds may pass
on this plain of glass
No heavings hint, that winds have been
On seas deathly serene.

There shrines, palaces and towers
undisturbed, by lifting winds forgot
Resigned beneath the sky
The melancholic waters lie.

The waves have now a redder glow
The hours are breathing faint and low
Down, down from underground
Hell, rising from a thousand thrones
