Double LP on black or transparent camo vinyl, in heavyweight gatefold sleeve. Two fold out posters.
Final copies of this incredibly strange record.
The vinyl version of the critically acclaimed WOLFMANGLER meisterwerk, presented here in an ultra deluxe double LP version. Heavyweight gatefold in a poly bag. New artwork graces the inside gatefold, a literal interpretation of the album title: a grim forest filled with crucified wolves and dead ravens by art genius French (Blackest Rainbow, Heroin skateboards, etc). The vinyl itself is presented as a double LP, with side D containing two previously unreleased tracks, 'King Guthrum' and 'Herbst'. As if this were not enough, the set is completed with two posters printed on newsprint-style recycled paper. One features the cover artwork by Alexander Tucker, the other depicting the gatefold artwork by French. Quite a package, attempting to do justice to the monumental sounds etched in the vinyl.
Please note: The "camo" vinyl, a blend of transparent green and solid brown, is not necessarily recommended for military or sport hunting usage.
Dwelling in a Dead Raven for the Glory of Crucified Wolves' "follows the chamber doom quartet lineage of their previous releases, the bass/bass/double bass here being augmented by what sounds like a flute and maybe a French horn. And a big drum. The drum and flute give songs...an almost Korean court music feel, but the French horn pulls the soupy bass throb closer to Noggin The Nog territory. There's also a kind of Ray Harryhausen feel, something reminiscent of the awakening of a plasticine dragon or the approach of clunkily animated skeletons holding swords, maybe one skelly has one of those spiky ball and chain thingies. If you could sonically render the effect of heavy rags being hypnotically stirred into a cauldron of molten pitch with a severed antler this is the sound you would get. " - PLAN B magazine.
