  • LURKER OF CHALICE - Tellurian Slaked Furnace NWN! Productions - full compilation


    Direct links are provided to purchase the compilation on CD, vinyl and digital format (shirts also available). Additional links are given for Lurker of Chalice and NWN! Productions.

    'Tellurian Slaked Furnace' release date - January 21st, 2020.

    Active from 2001-2005, the highly revered side project of Leviathan’s Jef Whitehead, Lurker of Chalice, is mostly known for the 2005 self-titled full-length. Prior to that album, however, Wrest recorded two CD-R demos under the Lurker of Chalice name, each of which was limited to approximately 50 copies or less and sold at a single record store in San Francisco, near where he was living at the time. Like the full-length, both demos were eponymous, though the first demo was identified only by the initials “L.O.C.” written in runes. While a few of the songs from the demo era bear indicia of black metal, the material from that period is generally far more experimental, defying any effort to be neatly categorized. For “Tellurian Slaked Furnace,” Wrest has distilled the best material from the early period of the project and edited, collaged, and compiled it, weaving together something more coherent and album-like. In this way, there seems to be something of his current artistic sensibility projected onto these recordings from nearly two decades earlier. In keeping with the confusing taxonomy of the project, the tracks on this LP are unnamed. The album opens with a song previously called “Lurker of Chalice” on the 2002 demo but is untitled on this release. The song showcases the haunting minimalism of Lurker of Chalice as slow acoustic guitars revolve around one another, arpeggiated chords ringing out above percussive accents. With the second track, a more sinister energy emerges, advanced by the first and only appearance of Wrest’s seething vocals. Over the full, 70-minute duration of this album, the music, almost completely instrumental, expands and contracts, evolves and disintegrates. Delicate ambient passages and labyrinthine excursions give way to electronic dirges of lumbering percussion with guitar shimmering transcendent above a melancholic lake of atmospheric sound and cascading sheets of electronics dissolving into lush acoustic melodies. Only very rarely do heavy riffs emerge; compared with Wrest’s work in Leviathan, or even the Lurker of Chalice album, the metal elements are far less direct and overt. Instead, this album conjures a bleak, unsettling mood without resorting to the compositional trappings of black metal. The music, which strangely seems both intensely personal, yet also detached and cinematic, evokes a palpable sense of solitude—the disconsolate reckoning of the self in the absence of others. The release of “Tellurian Slaked Furnace” marks the first time any of the Lurker of Chalice demo recordings have been reissued and also offers a substantial amount of previously unheard material.

  • Metal Matters Podcast #32: The Work of Jef Whitehead Lurker of Chalice / Leviathan


    This episode started out as a “Classic Records” episode for the Lurker of Chalice LP but turned into an appreciation of Jef Whitehead, also known as Wrest. There are many one-man black metal projects of merit, but Leviathan / Lurker of Chalice is in our opinion, the deepest, darkest and most interesting. The information available on Whitehead is economical, very little more than a few interviews; the Noisey mini-documentary on one-man black metal features him but he appears to be private and a man of few words. Randy and I express our impressions of the music with a sense of awe that approaches reverence.

    Intro: “Granite”
    Outro: “6116”

  • This Blood Falls As Mortal Part III - Lurker Of Chalice


    Sooo... This is a remake of my older version of this cover in which the production was a motherfucking shit.
    Anyway in the near future i'm going to do some Metal/Rock/Hip Hop mixing guides so this band it's going to have it's own chapter called Black Metal Mixing Guide #1 - How To Mix Like LURKER OF CHALICE - Ambient/Experimental/DSBM/Funeral Doom Tone (Yeh something like Death Culture Studios but i'm going to do a lot of Black Metal mixing guides from bands like Burzum, Leviathan, Deathspell Omega, Batushka, Bethlehem, Mgla, Peste Noire, Ved Buens Ende and more. Also i'm going to do mixing guides from bands from another generes like Radiohead, Daughters, Bedwetter, Lightning Bolt, Boris, 30 Seconds To Mars and others) so be aware :0!!!!.
    Btw, Guitars and Vocals could sound a lot better but i'm poor and i'm from Venezuela xdxdxd so i don't have an audio interface or a good guitar (i recorded this with an imitation of a Strat with single coils and a shity guitar cable pluged directly on the line in of the computer) and i did Vocals With a Rockband Mic so yeah i could sound really better....

  • Album Review: Lurker Of Chalice


    Another Southern Lord release, this time by Lurker Of Chalice in 2005.

    Probably one of the more silly black metal band names out there Lurker Of Chalice is actually Wrest from the band Leviathan.

    While he hasn't deviated from making black metal on this album, Wrest does very well in pushing the boundaries of your typical black metal sound. It is still very grim and dark and dirty, but manages to throw in some cool sound effects and melodic swoops and whooshes into his songs that are not normally found on your more straight ahead black metal releases.

    Wrest must be a guy loves to experiment with sound. There are loads of acoustic guitars, organs, a variety of percussion's, vocal treatments, crazy shifts in tempos and even some borderline hip hop beats on here. It never sounds too cluttered, but does give the album an inconsistent feel. There's only a track listing on this album, no album credits, so it's hard to tell exactly what in the hell is being used or what in the hell is going on. .

    Still a good album to check out if you wanna see how much you can mess around with a given sound and still make a decent black metal album. Experimental black metal for when you have to the normal music blahs.
