IFERNACH "Skin Stone Blood Bone" 12"LP
Tour de Garde
In the forest, the old times never left. Coming from the darkness and wilderness of the Gespegewagi woodlands, magic will reveal within the music of Ifernach.
"Skin Stone Blood Bone" consist of 11 tracks of raw, crude, bloody and cutting native American black metal like you never heard before, transporting you in the 666 levels of the mi'kmaq shamanic world of hunting, wild trekking and night dwelling. The Dark Diviner awaits you, at the end of the trail, filled with blood from the wounds of the giant horned serpent. Using very unconventional instruments, and literally beating metal scraps with a moose bone, the music of “Skin Stone Blood Bone” is furious and mysterious dark story-telling metal that will convince the old and harass the new.
A dark journey starting at dusk, when the very last bit of daylight struggles, when clouds are shape changing, when the forest is closing, it is exactly when the shaman game begins. With a land starving for its ancient voice to rise again, the Appalachian Wolf is screaming the heritage of his broken family, its gloomy hymns from the betrayed land and mostly, preparing his body and soul to transcend in shamanic ecstasy, reachable through his music, hazy and blurred lyrics, combined with blood-beating drum savagery.
Reissued on black and black / white swirl vinyl for the first time with the original cassette cover art.
