We Pass Like Night, From Land to Land

Amazing split featuring two American gems.

Leech is another Cascadian act, folkish in the same way WITTR are (which means not much) and better. One vast song that twists and turns for twenty minutes. Interesting and varied song structure, strong production echoed wails, beautiful guitar riffs and very organic sounding. For fans of other Cascadian acts, and really anyone who calls themselves a fan of black metal. above and beyond music here.

Thou's one of my favorite bands, each thing they put out is just amazing. Sludge doesn't do them justice, as some songs are in the vein of Eyehategod, some incorporate brilliant touches of post rock, and with this release, we see a strong black metal influence and attention to atmosphere. This is one of the best splits I've ever heard, period

The recent repress on vinyl is beyond gorgeous. 2 pins, a patch, a poster and the beautiful artwork along with white vinyl for Americans and there's a German version which I assume to be just as beautiful. Really worth the money.

Once again representing the Cascadian scene. Good stuff.

Yeah, definitely one of my favorite releases. Leech is really good, and Thou is just completely unparalleled insanity.

I've become quiet the fan boy of Thou, tracking down all I can of theirs. For newbies check out Tyrant, one of the best albums of the decade.

You and me both. I wish I had money to keep up with all of their split material. Between them and Circle of Ouroborus, I'm going to be supremely poor.
