Merry Christless to all!
As usual November was a busy month but we expect things to slow down a little bit this month due in part to the holiday season. You'd be surprised how difficult it is to book shows for a band of our particular imagery right around Jesus's birthday. Hahaha!
So over the course of this last month we have begun to take the first larger steps to composing some new material. Drum tracks are being produced for a new song that we want to eventually work into our live set list and include on our next commercial release Cold Crypt Sonatas Vol. II. The working title of the piece right now is "March On, Wallachian Night Breed" and it is shaping up to be quite the orgy of different styles and tastes and I estimate it will be our most complex song to date. It features an abnormal amount of tempo and time signature changes even for us. It is this element that I feel lends the atmosphere of the song a mildly progressive flavour which I never predicted us possessing. It's another extra lengthy opus in the vein of "Transylvanian Concubine" or "One Leaden Kiss" which will feature some input from a pair of guest musicians whose identity I will not yet divulge since it is unclear how this new working relationship will evolve. No matter the case, a new masterpiece is in the fetal stages of growth right now and once matured will have the same maniacal orchestrative qualities we (and hopefully you) have come to love.
We had the pleasure of sharing the stage with some very talented heavy metal bands this month and although none of them are exactly up our alley it was great to make some new friends and as always, communicate with musicians as passionate as ourselves. Anybody who has an ear for some underground metal music should take a minute to appreciate;
Avada (post hardcore)
A Vicious Cycle (death core)
Deities of Darkness (metal)
Through Eyes of Tomorrow (metal)
We sincerely hope to see all of them again in the immediate future.
Cast thy feral gaze below and have a gander at a couple of short clips from our last show!

Moving foward I want to remind everybody that our debut Cold Crypt Sonatas Vol. I is available in iTunes and from our web store "The Sepulchre" and will be downloadable via Amazon, Google Play, and Spotify by the end of the month. Keep you're eyes open for links until then!
One final thought, the 15th of this month is my birthday! If any of you miserly bastards decide you have the generosity to give me a gift give me the gift of you're continued support. Listen to the music and come to our shows and revel with us. We're all just one big happy coven...
Back to the shadows for now,
