"...March on my vast and ravenous breed,
To crush a crude Abrahamic creed.
'Tis a vulgar banquet courses plead,
To starving revenants whist they feed..."
Allow me to be hasty in my introductions and formalities. Even as I scribe this journal in my moment of clarity, madness taunts to descend upon me again like some bullying bird of prey...
I'm sure some of you must be wondering "What's new milord?" and "Why have you kept us in suspense?" In honesty, your anticipation and nervousness gives me great pleasure and serves to further compound the severity of my growing messiah complex. I love you for that.
Well, the good news is that we still walk among you and nobody has yet come to collect our mischievous souls back to perdition.
We have a new guitarist in our ranks who is undergoing the daunting aspects of initiation as well. Toiling away in his free time to master the already existent material from our 2014 debut album Cold Crypt Sonatas Vol. I as well as being privy to the blasphemous experimentation that is the creation of additional opuses for a follow up disc. He most assuredly deserves what little sympathy your cruel hearts can offer him but the true reward will be for him to terrorize and disgust the unsuspecting masses once again when the stars have aligned in our favor.
We are planning a music video for his successful completion of our Grand Rite.
This is where things get fun... we would ask that you all be a part of the filming process with us! Although this scheme is still in it's infancy, the idea would be to shoot a live music video for one of our tracks with you, the audience, playing a major role in the theatrical chaos. More details will follow on this as they develop. If it goes accordingly I promise we will have one Hell of a time regardless of the final outcome.
In other news we have decided to record and release one song that we have written from our developing album. It will be available to anybody that can provide proof of purchase for Cold Crypt Sonatas Vol. I such as a receipt at no cost whatsoever. To be eligible for a download you must subscribe to our new mailing list "Ethereal Blood's Unholy Communion" at the link provided below. After you have signed this Faustian pact you will receive email alerts pertaining to pertinent Ethereal Blood related news including the as yet undisclosed release time for this special track. We are hard at work writing the next album but it takes a considerable amount of time, creative energy, and attention to detail in order for us to maintain the quality of dark metal orchestral grandeur that we have come to expect from ourselves. With that in mind we wanted to give those who have supported us a little treat to slake their thirst in the meantime. Subscribe now!
In the future this mailing list will also be a way to communicate performance schedules and deals on our merchandise with our audience with out the growing restrictions that social media sites like Facebook continue to impart on us. Before I leave you here are some short video clips of us in the studio. Stay tuned, stay dark, and stay blood thirsty!
