HAMMEMIT - Morthwork - FEF22 - SOLD OUT

The second FEF release from the dark master of arcane English ambience is his most minimal and purest expression yet, consisting entirely of solo guitar instrumentals (along with some avian bookending).

Recorded amid the chalk downs of Wiltshire and titled in the area's 17th century dialect, MM evokes the distant mysterious past through modern means. There is beauty and calm to be found in these woods, but the ancient and malevolent lurk there also. Morthwork is melancholy, haunted, and alluringly sinister.
