The triumphant reawakening of San Francisco’s masters of behemoth ritualistic darkness, incarnated as a brand new and massive sixty minute full length album in digital and cassette tape formats. The cassette version can be purchased as a bundle option with a majestic seventy-five page book of photographs and writings, and includes in its B side a cassette version-only exclusive bonus track of a 30-minute live recording of the band performing in Vienna, Austria, during their 2016 European tour.

Within "Shrines for the Unwanted, Respite for the Cast Aside" bone, antler, and voice produce connective threads between the worlds, as guitar and percussion punctuate  shifts in mood. Voices call to the spirits, and the spirits call back in return. Recorded in 2016 during four private, collective only rituals, the pieces pull the listener through the darkest and most overgrown trails of the blackest forest. Monumental and horizonless ritualistic black ambience for fans of Sunn O))), Halo Manash, Wardruna, Arvo Part, and Lustmord. Vocal visitations by A.C. Way of Sutekh Hexen on track 3 “Litha”.

The cassette art is rendered with a blend of black, white and golden inks, while the photos featured in the book were taken by the band members them selves during their 2016 European tour - preserved memories of various hand made shrines as objects of power and contemplation. Cassette tapes are as always pro-dubbed and sealed. Digital download included with purchase of physical copies.
