Sutekh Hexen-(44.947089, -123.031742) (45.521560, -122.527929)

GSR 030

In honor of the total solar eclipse of MMXVII, whose path of totality crosses over the land in which this material was manifested, these two cassettes hereby document a re-envisioning of the original source material previouslyreleased on SALEM.

The first was the (sun)
And this is the sun obscured by the (moon)

Boundaries trespassed
Thresholds distorted
Malleable time; synaesthesia:
The sound of a great shadow passing over the earth

Original source produced by Sutekh Hexen: 01 June 2014. Recorded by GreySun: The Wisp House (44.947089, -123.031742)
Eclipsed by M. Garcia: Xibalaba (45.521560, -122.527929): Summer 2017

A random undisclosed number will come in a black envelope with eclipse inspired art.

GSR 029

Funeral Mourning- Left Seething Yet Unspoken & Veneration of Broken Worlds (GSR 029)

Funerary sermons & finality exhumed by Desolate at the ‘Altar of Dried Bones’ during the “Inertia of Dissonance (A Sermon in Finality)” sessions – MMXVI : MMXVII

Mastered by Dredged Oblivion

Veneration, the everlasting ode of misery unfurls its ravenous tongues.
Enthroned, upon the remains of two broken worlds…

Bury, Exhume! Bury, Exhume!
This howling corpse keeps raising to kill the flame in my fucking heart.
And we sail upon distant seas to nowhere – all the way to an endless nowhere. Yet i yield to nothing, nowhere, always and never…

Edition of 100 cassettes,25 random tapes came with a full color 11×17 “poster”.

Some of the best funeral doom available at this time.

Lluvia-Enigma

GSR 021

Three cassettes housed in a printed cardboard box, photo insert,medallion of Saturn,and velum insert with a request from Lord Vast to not upload the recording to the internet.

Sold out.

I recieved complaints regarding the quantity/limited availabilty of this release. No one was given advanced knowledge as to when it was going to be sold, this was a highly anticipated release and was bound to sell out quickly. I listed Enigma and then announced it on the GreySun instagram site.

Yes,shipping the box overseas WAS THAT EXPENSIVE!

No, there were no boxes set aside for later.

Leadeater-Oxalis

GSR-017

Leadeater-Oxalis A 2nd edition will be available in January 2017.

This recording originally came to me via e mail from James of Leadeater.

I took one listen to Oxalis,and I was instantly taken in.

Words can’t describe the ride that I was taken on while listening to Oxalis, I enjoyed this recording so much, that I played it over and over, while working and driving. I would best decribe it as a combonation of Ambient-drone/Atmospheric Black Metal. You will not be dissapointed.

This month(Septmeber 2017) will see the reissue of two long sold out releases, Solace and Leadeater. If you missed the physical editions  the first time around, be sure to pick them up as soon as they are available!

Ehecatl

The posters  are now gone.

A review of Ehecatl from Plague Haus

“Let me begin by saying there’s at least five bands of varying quality slinging the “Ehecatl” moniker. This one happens to be the best. In the Aztec pantheon, Ehecatl was the god of the wind. Like many pre-Christian cultures, different names were sometimes given to aspects of the same deity. In Germanic lore, Odin had literally hundreds of names. Here Ehecatl is a form of the creator god Quetzalcóatl, from who all life began. Aztec and Mayan folklore have become a prominent fixture in extreme metal over the past few years. Just look at the roster of bands associated with the Black Twilight Circle and more subtly by the likes of Lluvia. Hailing from Oakland, CA, Ehecatl are more obscure, sometimes sharing bills with the above mentioned bands. I’m sure that’s destined to change.

Originally released in 2015 via the groups Bandcamp page, this demo finally receives a well-deserved physical manifestation thanks to the ever eclectic Portland label GreySun Records. The album begins as there namesake, an ambient tempest building in the distance, ethereal strains of flute and the bellowing of synthetic horns until the first blast of “Ollin Tlatikpa Llukayou Chaos (Procession to the Cosmic Chaos) comes lumbering in, threatening and proud as The Shorn Ones through the marshes. Mesmerizing, shimmering guitars give way to bass and drum that hints at tribal rhythms. Mid-paced in the beginning, only to become a wall of scarcely contained pandemonium. Anguished vocals and a hint of low-end synth creeping along the undercurrent round out the mix.

Without so much as a breath it’s on to “Ixayotl Yaoyotl (Call of War)”. The drum and bass here are more intently focused on indigenous cadence, but still fitting into the structure of traditional Black Metal, whatever that is. It just seems to pair well. The synth work is bit more prominent and works well within the context of the track. Ehecatl are similar in style to the above mentioned Lluvia, with a bit more aggression. The execution is furious in intensity, yet as cold as the peaks of Popocatépetl.

Limited to 100 copies and going for a meager $7, this is one of those demos you will kick yourself for not grabbing when you had the chance.”

Last on the list are

GreySun t shirts and the Tzompantli ‘Zine.

There were a small batch of shirts made this fall. When I say small, I mean small.

I have always thought the “logo” would look cool on a t shirt or patch,so I decided to get a few made.

Tzompantli ‘Zine

screen_20shot_202016-10-17_20at_2012-17-07_20am_original

Issue one is in the works. More info will be available later on this year.After the completion of Sempervirens ‘Zine No.1 , I wanted to focus more on tapes. I have decided to try doing a much smaller ‘zine that is  possibly focused on some of the bands I have worked with. Its in the very early stages and thats all I will say about it now.

There are new GreySun tapes coming, as well as a limited slection of new(ish)distro tapes.

This was a more or less a gift to my friends, Leadeater.

The 2 sided  j card was something that I put together from photos thet were taken by Leadeater,printed on a metallic silver pearl stock. I was pretty sick while doing the layout, and managed to let a typing error sneak past me. My mistake.

For those that did not get the tape, the songs have been (and still are)available on bandcamp at a name your own price,weeks before the tape was even done.
