Drowning The Light / Ghosts Of Oceania – Mountain Of Malevolence Split LP (Clear with Black, White & Green Splatter Vinyl)
This 2023 split album may seem like a strange pairing, but it couldn't be more fitting! Both entity's tracks are based around the paranormal and Occult activity which this particular Mountain is notorious for, not only in local folklore but Azgorh's own personal experiences in the house he grew up in on the mountain, as well as many experiences within the forest of the mountain over the years since... and still to this day. The strange burial-like mounds, the unearthly sounds echoing between the trees and the shadows that stalk the hills. Those who have been on the mountain at night especially know what I speak of.
The tracks within this split weave between each band, Drowning the Light bringing its signature haunting, melancholic & majestic Black Metal, while Ghosts of Oceania creates eerie midnight music filled with darkness and a sinister yet sombre nostalgia.
Both band's very existence have been shaped by this mountain and the experiences upon it.
