Wildernessking New Track Debut!

The first new track by Wildernessking is finally available to stream and as a FREE DOWNLOAD on the band's bandcamp page.  The track is titled "Rubicon" and is the first song on their upcoming Antithetic Records debut "The Writing of Gods in the Sand".  The song is a perfect album opener, starting with a vortex of screams exploding into black metal assault on your senses.  As the songs flows, you will hear more atmospheric segments, and elements of thrash as well.  An excellent preview of a downright fantastic album!  We are extremely excited to be releasing this album, both on limited CD and Vinyl! 

CD can be preordered now for only $8 at our store.  Vinyl will be underway in the coming months, for a spring 2012 release.

Website & Release Updates

Its been quiet here at the site for about a month now. Sorry for the lack of updates, but don't let that trick you, we've been very busy behind the scenes!

First up, we've updated the website with links to all of our pertinent information.  You can now find a dedicated Releases page, an About page, links, contact, etc...  Something I've been meaning to do for a while, but just now found the time to do.

Second, an update on the motW box set progress.  Here's where we stand at the moment.  All the remastered audio has been sent to the pressing plant to cut the plates and make test pressings.  The artwork is VERY close to being 100% complete.  I have spent the past several weeks painstakingly recreating each page of the original booklets to populate the inside panels of each gatefold jacket.  Toby has been hard at work as well, creating brand new artwork for both the 7" front label, as well as the 11x17 poster (which he will be signing as well!).  You can see all of our hard work (thanks so much to Josh @ Blood Music for making these awesome mockups and organizing everything!!) here:

If you haven't noticed, we still have our first 3 CD's in the store for preorder.  Everything is ready for submission on both the Nooumena and Book of Sand albums, so they will be in production this week.  The Wildernessking CD audio is being mastered and should be complete this week, so it should be in production starting next week (by December 23).  I've listened to the new album several times and am extremely impressed by it.  These guys have made a monumental effort for their first release as Wildernessking, and I can't wait to share it with all of you. 

Until then, be on the lookout for your Young and in the Way vinyl as they all shipped on December 13.  They look amazing!  Also, speaking of Young and in the Way, we only have about 15 copies of the first pressing of "V. Eternal Depression" left in our store, and the band has about the same amount left of their copies.  We will be doing a second pressing in a Clear w/ White Haze which we'll be called "Mountain Fog", and it will be available for order starting January 1st.  Pictures to follow very soon!  Thanks to everyone for making this such a huge success!!
