"These artists seem to embrace the isolation and oneness with their environment, with all the beauty, sadness, and wonder that it may bring. The recent Bloodlines split cassette is an easily absorbed and welcome glimpse into this community." -Black Metal & Brews

"Bloodlines is a highly emotional journey through atmospheric soundscapes dealing in both triumphs and failures." - Forever Slain Zine

"This is an immense piece, one of my favourites of the year which will be hard to beat." -Inhale the Heavy

"This isn’t just black metal, this is heartfelt and creative music that transcends the genre limitation that was placed on it. All you have to do is immerse yourself in it!" -This Noise is Ours

"It’s easy to get lost in this music, and the atmosphere is incredible. 9/10" -We Love Metal

"Bloodlines is a mini-masterpiece of different perspectives of Appalachian music that are highly complementary to one another. Review grade: A." -Unappreciated Scholars

"Fabulous musicianship. Not for the weak fainted." - Moonspell Rites Promotions

"This is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of the more atmospheric sides of black, doom and sludge metal. 8/10." -Occult Black Metal Zine

"It is truly rare to find a release, much less a split release that can carry the listener to both highs and lows with deeper rewards surfacing with each spin but this release does it in spades.10/10" -Jshstew Wordpress

Track Name: Old Thunder - An Inheritance of Ashes
Heart hammering the forest floor beneath
Blood spilled for
A curse, barren and fruitless
Seeps into soil
Soaked with pine resin

This void I leave behind
I leave for you
With you

Carry my burden
The burning grief
Ashes inside your womb

We will not leave these pines
Outline of a gun barrel
Burned into the palms of my hands

Go and lay your eyes upon
Rolling golden fields
Carry me home
Inherit my loss

Heart hammering the forest floor beneath
Thank God I am not what my father became
Track Name: Old Thunder - Burnt Bone Garland
Ex nihilo

Sulking in
Corners of this
Mere memory, forgotten and recessed

In the middle of hordes
Their eyes pierce unfamiliar territory
And land upon a figure forgotten

Do not remember
the pain I heaped upon
your withering hands
Or the contempt I fired at you
Like a burning bullet
Hollows and houses don’t hold
But the hate I streaked upon
This place
Still sings from frozen soil

Freeze my bones in this river
Flotsam and jetsam
Out of my dead grasp

Ceasing to return here
I walk away

Yet again fearing
The fruit I could reap
From the thorns I’ve sown
