about

"Combining their talents for this split EP, Twilight Fauna's Paul Ravenwood and Jennifer Christensen decided to forgo genre limitations completely and instead chose to base their song pairing around similar emotional content. Deeply moving and at times painfully honest, these are songs that speak of grief and loss. Of sickness. Of sacrifice and of healing."

"The track brings to mind a snowstorm tearing through the mountains of Tennessee. It’s harsh and relentless, but there’s also beauty to be found if you look close enough." -Noisey

"Make no mistake, both tracks are absolutely superb, but that they are so musically different yet cohesive in their aims and mood is to their credit. A bleak, haunting underground gem." -The Sound Not the Word

"This split is not short on its ability to suck listeners into a vortex of hellish, nightmarish introspection and the dredging up of past griefs and pains. Highly recommended to those willing to take the plunge into challenging, painful territory." -Nine Circles

"This is not music for the faint hearted, it is for the broken hearted." -Ghost Cult Magazine

‘Crossing the Threshold’ conveys loss in a captivating, empty and isolating composition. This track smothers you in distortion with a more conventional atmospheric black metal sound, leaving you feeling pretty empty by its conclusion. –The Independent Voice

"Sonically, their respective songs make a lot of sense together, as their respective sounds are of the same plane of existence. But both are different enough from each other and have their own nuances that the result is a really rewarding, substantive 7” split effort." -Meat Mead Metal

"Simply gorgeous....you need to set aside 15 minutes out of your day to just chill with Twilight Fauna and Jennifer Christensen." -Metal Trenches

"This seven inch almost sounds like it’s a recording of the process of dying. ‘Sickness Unto Death’ is the sadness of knowing you or someone you love is on death’s door while ‘Crossing The Threshold’ comes off as the physical pain of dying and crossing into the unknown.” -Xtapolapometal

"Twilight Fauna is far more than a passive passing interest, as with Paul Ravenwood’s complementing Green Elder project I find myself in stasis as time stands still and I am consumed with sound and emotion." -Inhale the Heavy

"A nice addition to any collection where there's room for dark, grim music." - Merchants of Air

“This is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of experimental, neo-classical and atmospheric black metal. 8 /10” – Occult Black Metal Zine

Track Name: Twilight Fauna - Crossing the Threshold
The light flickers, glimmers in time. Shadows in the distance, expand then divide. The dimness sweeping clean, chasms remain. The light breaches the surface, lingers dying in the flame. Extinguished the gulf swells. Lucid, obscure, veiled the radiance blurs. Blind on the threshold, screaming into the gulf. The eclipse rises and falls to the earth distorted, hollow, and burned.
