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 A, there is Lycanthia, a six-piece gothic death-doom metal band from Sydney, Australia. Their music can be described as dark, aggressive and emotional soundscapes fused with classical and rock elements. Consisting of grim male and dual female vocals, violins, keyboards, guitars and drums, Lycanthia continue that "golden age" traditional-doom sound with influences such as My Dying Bride & Theatre of Tragedy while also adding a more aggressive, complex and sophisticated sound, incorporating the likes of Draconian, Primordial, Shape of Despair & Virgin Black while still maintaining their own unique sound. Having now been a couple of years since the release of their latest full-length "Oligarchy", Lycanthia has been preparing new material that will comprise their next album, and in the meantime have managed to record a new track entitled "The Harbinger" which was released digitally and on a video clip earlier this year but was always planned and intended for a vinyl release.

lyrics

I am the bringer of storms
I am the flesh searing kiss of holocaust winds
Fair weather, farewell to you
If only i could escape from this prison I'm in
I sit, I ponder, awaiting the release
When i cast vengeance upon thee
The years pass as the pressure builds
Global annihilation and I; sitting upon thy throne of death with pure glee
Til then i wait
I am the watcher in the center of the world
Seeing all, calm almost silent
As you are chaos all around me
