Moss - Eternal Return

On December 25, 2005 the band released its debut album Cthonic Rites on cd via Aurora Borealis Records. Cthonic Rites was produced/recorded in early 2005 at Chuckalumba Studio by Jus Oborn of veteran UK doom metal band Electric Wizard. The first press was available with a live cdr limited to 115 copies, recorded on 20 August 2005 at the Camden Underworld on the 115th birthday of H. P. Lovecraft.

In March 2007 a split 7" single with the French band Monarch was issued on the British doom/psychedelic/punk label Rise Above Records in an edition of 550 copies. On this release, Moss covers the track 'Maimed & Slaughtered' by the British d-beat punk band Discharge. Plans for another split 7", with Japanese d-beaters Disclose, were cancelled with the death of Disclose frontman Kawakami on 5 June. Moss' track 'Crawl (Scrape)' was recorded during the Cthonic Rites sessions and will remain unreleased.

The long delayed expanded vinyl version of Cthonic Rites was released on October 12, 2007 and limited to 1000 copies, 375 of which are a triple vinyl set consisting of the previously self-released extremely limited ep Live Burial. The package featured gatefold and poster artwork by American illustrator Justin Bartlett: An announcement was also made on the bands' official myspace page that their second album will be recorded in January 2008 and released on Rise Above Records. In addition was the announcement of two shows, which were played in December.

It's a vinyl single that is missing on the discography here. About ten minutes full of unholy occultism driven doom metal for you. Enjoy!
