NYC - FL
Transmissions, a split12" between New York's TELOCH VOVIN and Florida's GRAVE GNOSIS, is nearing release in late July. Advancing its street date, new audio clips from both sides of the record have been posted.
New York City-based TELOCH VOVIN's music is about creation transcending creator. The band's art is about the release of the spirit from the terrestrial bonds and the freedom that follows. TELOCH VOVINis more a coven than a band. Its members are like-minded Individuals who have joined together to focus their negativity, hatred, disgust and scorn and channel it back into the world.TELOCH VOVIN is a monument to transcendental death, built with the members' very flesh. The band now officially welcomes Dhumavati to their ranks. After months of her performing bells and effects live with the band, she has just recorded for the band's impending full-length being completed for the months ahead. The band has announced a how show September 1st in Brooklyn with Mortician and others.
TELOCH VOVIN's side of the Transmissions split features "Treatise On The Left Emanation," which was recorded at REI and Studio Pentagrammaton and features guest guitar khaos by Doug Randazzo and screams by the Dragon's Coven. The song is an invocation and an exploration of the Qlithotic Worlds, The Nightside Emanation of the Khaos before Creation and the Tree of Death. It's a person expression and representation of the ordeals experienced while working with and interacting with the adversarial forces of Khaos and Holy Death. To destroy the world, one must destroy the self.
St. Petersburg-based GRAVE GNOSIS was formed in 2015 with the sole intent of expressing the divine experience of death in full transcendent reverence. Translating ritual, myth, and worship into hymns of the inexpressible and untamed beauty that lies beyond the borders of our mundane world. Blending wide extremes of genre and a ceremonial live performance, the ever-growing cult of GRAVE GNOSIS stands as a monument in honor of the black sun of death. By acts of traitorous spite, may the words of creation fall silent. In Nomine Tiamat. The band just completed a very successful string of dates on the By Moloch's Light tour across the US East Coast and will announce new live dates in the coming months.
GRAVE GNOSIS delivers "Ravenmocker" on Transmissions, the track recorded by the band at Sixth Gate Studios and featuring guest vocals by H. MacRea of Thaumiel. The Ravenmocker is a figure of Cherokee (tzalagi) lore. A powerful witch who has surpassed the status of its fellow Night-Goers by delving into the taboo and feasting upon the flesh of man, not unlike the Wendigo, or skinwalkers. The power of the Ravenmocker does not come from this ritualistic cannibalism, but from a connection to that which lies beyond the veil of Death. Infeed, devouring human hearts only maintains a physical presence, anchoring the unearthly into a vessel for the Other Side. Lessons of Vampirism, Heart Chakra Autocannibalism, Therianthropic Trance, and Dilitriomancy are among the many that meditations upon the Kalona Ayeliski can provide. Seek them near the dead and dying the old the sick and the vulnerable. They stalk not unlike the shape shifters; their true form can only be seen by their victims and exceptional sorcerers. Their presence incites fear, primal and irrationality. Let paranoia be your guide. Follow the eyes that watch from the shadows.
