The sands of time are running fast indeed…
More than 25 years ago, Pentacle released its second tape called “Winds of the Fall”. It was our first experience in a real studio and it was a memorable event for a band like ours. It captured Pentacle in a professional environment for the very first time and taught us many valuable lessons for recordings to come. It was our first encounter with coffee-addict Oscar Holleman who would join us for two upcoming sessions as well (“A Dance Beyond” DSFA compilation track and “Exalted Journey” 7” EP). Previously, he produced Acrostichon’s “Dehumanized” demo which convinced us to give Oscar a try. It was a fitting encounter indeed. The result was a tape to be proud of!
In 2018, the bells chime the return of the winds…
Our partner in crime, Manuel Tinnemans’ label Deathworx, has the honour to release “Winds of the Fall” as a 12” on black vinyl (limited to 300 copies) as his first official release. There will be no liner notes included as there’s nothing to be told anymore. Both our original drummer Marc Nelissen and I cracked our brains for old stories again, yet everything has been said in the commemorate words which are included in the booklets of “The Fifth Moon…beyond and back” DCD, “Ancient Death” MLP or CD release through Vic Records. That being said, the vinyl will include some small extras which nature will be disclosed when the return is near. No remaster or remix. We kept it raw and bloody. You will be able to hear the songs including all their flaws as they were recorded by three guys full of Death Metal passion back in 1993! The songs included are:
– Buried in Mankind’s Sleep
– Descending of the Soul
– My Fall
– Deepness of the Depths
– Winds of the Fall
This piece of vinyl will be available from the band, Deathworx and trusted allies like Iron Pegasus Records. We will keep you posted!
We expect the test pressing to arrive any day now, so we will keep you informed about the progress of this release.
