Hymns of the Blackest Light - Volume 1

Post by ThomasEversole on Thu Feb 23, 2017 7:10 pm

Been quiet about this here while it was developing, but I think now is the time to say something.  

For the second anniversary of The Blackest Light (Christian black metal forum that I started in 2015), we decided to make a compilation with the active musicians on that forum.  Thanks to one of the (former) members owning a record label (Fallen Oak Recording) we were able to have this professionally pressed and released through his label.  Smile

- CDs available March 7th
- This is a CHRISTIAN compilation with artists playing ambient, electronic, grindcore, death and black metal.
- 15 tracks from 15 artists, almost an 80 minute running time.
- CDs are less than 6 bucks.
- A few of the artists are also on this forum.  (Orationem = me, Stormsinger = Exo, Amelioration = Blake, Corpse = Jeff)
- Will be carried by other Christian metal distros as well (eventually LOL)
- Volume 1 because the forum members and label are planning on doing another one next year!

You can preview the album by watching this video.  Wink

Aww yeah!  I'm excited this is becoming a reality.  It's been in the works for a little while now.  Got my copy pre-ordered. afro

I am REALLY excited and pleased to make my "official" recorded musical debut amongst this band lineup.  If folks like this sort of metal, this is a seriously STRONG track lineup......

Metal Helm has it for pre-order.  If anyone is still hoping to get a copy, they might be your last option!  (I don't know if/what other distros may be carrying it.)

Looks like the pressing has been delayed. The release date is set for March 21st. Nothing Fallen Oak Recording did, but apparently pressing companies nationwide have been messing up orders left and right...

Also, there *might* be the possibility of pressing more copies. Obviously there's a demand for it if all copies are spoken for before the release date...

Update, direct from the man himself: CD's arrived yesterday, shipped out today!

If you were interested in this but didn't manage to snare a copy during the pre-order phase, there are a few extra copies available at the Fallen Oak webstore, and this will be carried at Metal Helm and Vision of God websites.

Yup. Mine too.  Wife posted a couple pics on FB of me,I guess I was a teensy bit excited........LOL

It is so VERY cool to see my name in performer's credits on something "real".

Today was the first time I actually listened to any of the other songs in the lineup.  There are several VERY good tracks on this.
