Our music is a reflection of the land in which we dwell; it draws its power from the long, dark winters, the perpetual mist. It is the sound of dampness and decay, the fear that we shall never see the sun again; it is icy and crystalline. It is the sound of roaring bonfires, the drunkenness of hot wine and mead, the loneliness and solitude of a strong hall in the forest, the quiet hum and peace of springtide. We sing a lament for our lost connection with nature; with magic and the ways of our ancestors; we call out for the blood of our enemies. It is our personal experience of the power of the land around us that gives our music animating force. We are not Satanists, nor do we subscribe to right wing ideologies, though we understand the anger and hopelessness that draws lost souls to these philosophical dead ends. Our philosophies are anti-modern, romantic and anti-human, a musical expression of an emerging eco-black metal consciousness that has taken root here in the Pacific North West. We are unique in that we express a deeply underground ideology on a larger stage. Our Black Metal is highly local and personal - not beholden to the expectations and demands of any scene. Our music is rooted in the traditions of Black Metal, but we subvert the aesthetic and ideology to remain true to our personal manifestation. To us, Black Metal might be understood as the Death card in the Tarot or the number 13, which represents not an end to life, but the shedding of an old and outmoded way of being: death and rebirth, transformation and enlightenment. Our music is perhaps what happens after the initial, necessary, hateful burst; after the psychic explosion that is Black Metal wipes away that which came before: the sick and twisted "truths" of our modern condition. For in Black Metal, we see great truth, transcendence and power. Black Metal is the cleansing fire that frees us from the bondage of rationality, science, morality, religion, leaving us free to choose our own path."
