it took me a while to get my hands on a copy of this one but I'm glad I can finally share it with all of you.
courtesy of handmade birds, this split brings together the solo projects of both members of servile sect. sadness saturn's first track is raw black metal while the second is industrial noise. the golden raven material is more experimental, with plenty of synths and whispers of melody, but also a healthy dose of discord and some very eerie spoken-work vocals.
you don't need me to tell you that handmade birds is worthy of our hard-earned dollars. they put out consistently fantastic tapes, vinyl, and even (gasp) CDs from artists like panopticon, sutekh hexen, merzbow, prurient, circle of ouroborus...the list really does go on and on. and with distribution now being handled by thrill jockey, they're more reliable than ever before.
so if you haven't already, take a look through the handmade birds store and grab anything that piques your interest. don't worry, it'll all be great.
