E'sPsychedelicBreakfast Since I can't get enough of the digital version of this EP I had to order the CD. And yes, I will definitely get it on vinyl too in case this should ever happen.
Can't wait to hear more material from both bands. Totally one of the best finds this year no matter what else I'll find. Favorite track: Rituals In The Dead of Night.

I can not describe the horror That lurks beneath the waves Dead ones wait in deepest sleep Their servants wait for their return I can not describe the feeling of madness that stirs within my soul Beyond the stars, the old ones dwell When they come they will end/enslave us all. Rituals in the Dead of Night Summoning dark powers Rituals in the Dead of Night Alright! I can not describe the fear My visions have imparted unto me I see the world drowned in great fire Millions burn and die in flames Rituals in the Dead of Night Summoning dark powers Rituals in the Dead of Night Soon all will drown in despair and madness The Twisted Shapes that haunts my visions Dare me to end it all. Ancient beings not from this world Haunt my every dreams The darkest lord calls unto me He beckons me to join He promises me everlasting life and the chance the travels the stars Cthulu Rylei!

A blackness rises from the ground Turning all the seas to tar As rotten corpses rise To wreak a wave of terror Summoning the Mad God Words uttered without a sound Words steeped in ancient vows Words born in darkness Malevolent forces go to work Wretched preachers utter tortured prayers Draining life from the Earth Draining light from the Sun The Mad God's work is done
