This lot are new to me. Seed Stock Records (run by one of the lads from Bone Awl) are rereleasing the Golden Dawn/ Apeiron 1995 split next month and it is exactly the kind of thing I'm in the mood for lately. Funny how these coincidences happen, with my thread asking for raw astral BM recommendations. This is almost exactly nailing the vibe I'm looking for- crude riffing but with a good knack for composition and parpy keys (and possibly a flute?) and a strange/obscure atmosphere.

Do you have sun stroke? That's atrocious.

I'd forgotten all about Golden Dawn, it must be more than 15 years since I last heard them! Total also-rans, even if they are not all that bad, like Vergelmer, Fatal Embrace, Mundanas Imperium, etc. I hadn't even realised that he/they did two more albums after The Art of Dreaming.

Got this LP in the post yesterday and finally getting to spin it now. It's rough around the edges but that's alright with me as I think it captures something quite unique and interesting. Probably the fact that it's neither evil nor melodic enough is why it never broke out of obscurity, but it's hitting the spot for me :D There's something endlessly fascinating about these little weird gems that get unearthed from time to time.

I like it. Reminds me of old falkenbach. Like you said rough around the edges but the synth kinda pulls it together. Some of the gutteral vocals are not great tho, kinda takes from it in places.

An unfortunate choice of name alright, given the current associations.
