With The End In Mind Tides Of Fire
Drawing on a diverse sonic palette, With The End In Mind creates a distinctive sound, rooted to Place. Each movement of the album reveals itself to be interwoven parts of a cohesive whole. Luscious soundscapes build from a whisper, only to be split like straining trees by the thunderous black metal storm. The maelstrom is tempered by the occasional hint of dark folk and classic psychedelia, echoes of a forgotten time and place. Fury and turmoil seem all-encompassing, yet give way to deeper understandings of Myth and the eternal cycles of our world. Born of grief and uncertainty, born of life-changing experiences in the wilds of Northern California and the Olympic Mountains, born of ever escalating crises and ever escalating resistance, Unraveling; Arising is a labor of truest love, a call of urgency, a reverent homage to Life in all its forms.
