I: Lords Of The Black Citadel - Out Now

I: Lords Of The Black Citadel is now available via Bandcamp as digital download.

An analog Synth and Sorcery soundtrack for the intrepid dungeoneer plundering the deep; for the barbarian fracturing the skull of a great Lich; for the dark sorcerer reading lost grimoires by candlelight. 

Strike out from the opulent courts and hanging gardens of a forbidden city, journey across icy tundras and seek glory in the lost tombs of forgotten Titan kings. 

The road is treacherous, and there will be many traps and many who will try and stop you. Will you survive?

All Hallows' II - Out Now

All Hallows’ II is now available via Bandcamp as digital download and limited edition cassette.

35 years ago investigative journalist Ellis Ledstone admitted himself as a patient to an alternative healthcare facility, The Shepard Institute Of Psionic Inquiry. 6 months later, police would break down its doors to discover the remains of a dozen patients in The Institute’s basement. Until now, the events leading up to that night have been largely withheld from the general public. For the first time ever we attempt to piece together that story. 

All Hallows’ II includes the unaltered case files of the events of 1983. The reader is encouraged to come to their own conclusions by examining the interviews, reports and artefacts within. 

All Hallows’ II is a full length soundtrack album by transatlantic synthesists Robin Ogden (OGRE) and Dallas Campbell. The sequel builds upon the previous instalment of All Hallows’: slasher synth chase sequences, atmospheres laden with powerful dread and eerie soundscapes score a true horror story, track by track, to thrilling and cinematic conclusions. All Hallows’ II is a conceptual narrative journey into cults and the occult, unfeeling cosmic horrors, and the unplumbed darkness of the human condition.

All Hallows’ II with Dallas Campbell is now available for pre-order as digital download and limited cassette editions via Bandcamp. Releases January 25th 2019.
