BEHIND THE DARK ARTS - 'Ember Season'

[VIEW BEHIND THE DARK ARTS] https://youtu.be/zaLHQXLFPf0

This just in: science and religion do not mix. Allow for validation only for possible discredit of theory. The ideologue is a quaint, if savage creature. Harangue until the jackalope sings. Laudate eam sicut discedemus!

BEHIND THE DARK ARTS - 'Dirt Eaters'

[VIEW BEHIND THE DARK ARTS] https://youtu.be/uOFVX_ZJHtk

Before he was a saint in the cornfield, he was just an old scarecrow in love with his works and days. But they burnt them down. See the peripatetic mendicant dash his dreams against the dust in a begging bowl. Is he alienated, alien or just waiting for the mothership to return?

BEHIND THE DARK ARTS - 'She Haunts Every Dancefloor'

Enter Saint Barbara of the Holy Pistol, ashamed of her love. But why? The ghosts of love are not shameful, it is only those who put the bullet in the body and soul of romance and reason that need be reviled. Don't let your spirits drown. Hit the dancefloor.

[BEHIND THE DARK ARTS - ANNOUNCEMENT - NEW ALBUM + TOUR + BEHIND THE DARK ARTS (/news)

[VIEW BEHIND THE DARK ARTS] https://youtu.be/HZxKs2wOTrg

Get down, but don't pray - only get down so as to get up! That said, this is the katabasis and we're about to experience some cosmic/ethical horror. With the album dropping (from heaven, screaming, self righteous as Milton's Satan) on September 18 and our heroic/anti-heroic tour starting a week later (September 25), we thought it may be a good idea to grant some insight into just what we're on about this time around - party is over, dark times ahead. For the next five weeks, we'll be posting videos wherein I, WH (known self aggrandizing fool) shall explain (with varying levels of lucidity) the themes behind each song. As a disclaimer, I had very little time to unpack complex ideas and may not have realized my goals, so feel free to hold that against me (why the Hell do you even need my permission to do or feel or think anything?); further all opinions and arguments are my own and the band probably had no idea what I was doing when we were writing and recording this monster, so I implore you to go easy on them. Love you all SO much.

BACK ON THE ROAD

Hi all,

Well, it sure is lovely to be back on the road again – albeit in a stretched and languid fashion, men of leisure and grandiose privilege taking the darkest path possible as long as it remains convenient. As you probably know, being the well informed and curious individual that you are (and if not, how the Hell did you get to this page? Really? Excellent! Do continue . . .), we are currently on tour with sleepmakeswaves, having, as of writing, visited our three parts handsome one part haggard admixture upon Byron Bay, Brisbane and Newcastle, peddling, for the most part, a heady dose of new material from our soon to be released third album (Te Satanem quaeso, brevi tempore esse!).

In short order, we shall focus our attentions on Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney, all the while clamouring for free booze and your adoring attention. Please, my knees are so sore (at press age 42, I’m surprised that I am still so spry).

PS. It was lovely to meet a real philosopher at The Cambridge in Newcastle – I know that you weren’t there for us, but thanks for taking the time to be harangued during technical difficulties.

PPS. I truly am sorry about the rapping, everyone, I hate rap-metal/rock as much as the next decent fellow, but really – what else can I do when everything goes to Hell and nothing works. Please forward all suggestions to management.

PPPS. Thanks to Nat + Jay for letting us sleep on their floor.

WH.


The Sackcloth Saint of the Cornfield Video

THE SACKCLOTH SAINT OF THE CORNFIELD

Hi all,

Now, I know that normally we go all out on having complex narrative elements in our music videos (or at least fulfill the criteria of a story as defined by Aristotle in that they have a beginning, middle and end), but in this case, our new manager (Mr. T) said that if we would just give something else a try (doing cool guy rock moves for three minutes and thirty six seconds), he would get the fucking Devil Herself on board to direct. And you know what? He fucking came through with the goods. When She said jump, we were already up in the air. Man, we fucking love The Devil as much as I'm sure you will love this music video. Keep your Satans up!

Love you all SO much.

WH.


Supporting sleepmakeswaves Tour Poster

SLEEPSMAKESWAVES

The beast rumbles in her cave, sloughing the sweat and grime of Summer to the floor, sliding in the grim shadows and her fangs run sweet at the sound of echoes moving down the terrestrial gullet that holds her as the arms of dead goddesses grow weary of the world.

Moody, right? Well, get used to it – we are heading out on a national tour with known mood setters, Sleepmakeswaves and will be doing our best to bring fire and fury to what would otherwise be a respectable affair of staggering riffs and ambient passages that one could well get lost in whilst reading Plato’s dialogues (I particularly like Crito).

The embers rose from the pyre, motes of sackcloth dancing towards the periastron, out beyond the Jovian system, Winter waits in his palace of bones, drinking white rum and listening to The Ohio Players.

Hail Satan!

Love you all SO much.

WH.


Welcome to our new website

WELCOME

Dearest friends, lovers and possible financial benefactors, it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our ‘official’ website. Check it out – Satanism as far as the eye can see! With this in mind, we will be keeping you up to date with all of our dark arts antics and schemes right here – videos, music, late night drunken philosophy/theodicy and, of course, tour dates. We have grand plans on the burn right now and would hate for you to be unprepared for the rapture when we descend from the Internet like the glowing three parts rock n roll Adonis/one part face of Euryale monster that we are.

Hail Satan!

Love you all SO much.

WH.
