Our second official release, it took longer than it should have due to lineup difficulties and me moving to towns for work. The end results were more than worth it though. Again there was no official physical release aside from some home made cdr's this time though we splashed out on some nicely printed inlays. Only 50 or so were made and these have all long gone now.

Around 15 songs were written in this period but only these three made it to the EP. Some of the others ended up on "Unclean Rituals" and there are plenty sat in the archives waiting to be finished.

This is where we started to move away from writing explicitly about the Lovecraftian Mythos and began to develop our own lyrical universe base around Northern English myths and legends.

There is was a spoken word part for the quiet ambient section in "Ghosts..." but we could never find the right person to perform it. Maybe one day it will be recording and take it's place.

This version was remixed and mastered by me, April 2016
