To Blacken the Pages – When I Lie on the Ground

When I Lie on the Ground is the first material from TO BLACKEN THE PAGES since the release of Bogland in 2012.

This 30 minute track was written for a compilation cassette box set which was never been released, so here it is for free, right now.

When I Lie on the Ground see’s McAree’s sonic experiment return to a raw, visceral dirge, a return to a love of loud guitar work and rumbling keyboards.


To Blacken the Pages: Bogland

Bogland, TBTP/McAree’s 6th release, sees a radical change in musical direction. Eschewing previous work drenched in fuzz pedals and effects, Bogland sees McAree focusing much more directly on clean – if still loud – guitar based work. The work here, not surprisingly, results in a series of shorter pieces, and sees McAree juxtaposing guitar based explorations against sounds created using largely free, visual-based apps on an ipad. This much simpler and direct approach to working also sees McAree use his voice across several tracks.

To Blacken the Pages – ‘The Urgency’ & ‘And we started again, as if nothing had happened before’

To Blacken the Pages ‘The Urgency’ marks not just this bands debut release, but also the first release from newly formed Colony Records. The Urgency presents 1 massive track clocking in at 47 minutes. Beginning with luscious, gently lulling guitars, it becomes saturated with a droning holler of feedback. The Urgency is a testament to failed hopes and dreams, residing somewhere between Earth’s Thrones & Dominions and Skullflower.

Foldout cardboard sleeve, hand numbered in an edition of 100.

And we started again, as if nothing had happened before

And we started again, as if nothing had happened before presents 3 tracks, the first, The Shadow which Remains, crashing straight into 17 minutes of feedback and overdriven, burnt out riffs. The second track, I saw you it / and slid away, is 35 minutes of fucked guitars and bizzarrely,

about 10 minutes in, a Sisters of Mercy style drum machine. Halfway through the track breaks down into full-on meltdown with a luscious, fuzzed out ending. And then we changed our minds finishes things off with a 6 minute, one note, amp blender.

Foldout cardboard sleeve, hand numbered in an edition of 100.

Each disc in an edition of 100.

The first 60 of each printed on brown card, with 20 each on green card and 20 on charcoal. The print on charcoal is a little darker as you may expect. Black-bottomed, silver-topped discs.

BOTH NOW SOLD OUT
