Dark Atmospheric Occult Music. TENDERNESS OF WOLVES (formed 2020) are a dark/occult electronic duo from the United Kingdom.

 

Influenced by the experimental eclecticism of acts such as Coil, Laibach, Current 93and Cabaret Voltaire, as well as the likes of How To Destroy Angels, The Sisters of Mercy, Ulver, and Recoil. Multimedia artist Sean M. Palfrey as TENDERNESS OF WOLVES distils ambient atmospheres, darkwave grooves, and industrial dissonance into psychedelic evocations that have been compared to The White Horse, Dazed Marrow, ƧƆỴ†ɧЄ, and even “Lycia on meth”.

 

Our first demo EP was released on 05/11/2020 through our Lunagram Recordings imprint, you can listen in full and download it from our Bandcamp page.

'Colours' EP & Video

“You reap what you sow…”

Returning with their esoteric blend of Darkwave meets Witch House; Tenderness of Wolves' debut EP, on their digital label Lunagram Recordings, turns their brooding gaze to the Sisterhood / Sisters of Mercy classic 'Colours' in an ominous homage to the original.

The track is accompanied by two alternative mixes of 'Colours', re-imaginings of their recent free singles, 'Death | Devil' & 'Anatomy of Terror', as well as experimental cuts 'Satanic Panic' and 'Terminat Hora Diem'.

The EP is available now through the band's Bandcamp page, as well as all digital stores and streaming services. A surreal music video for the title track accompanies the EP, and can be viewed on the band's YouTube channel.

The EP opens with "Death", dark atmospheric ambient piece, led by melancholic piano and thumping drums, and backed with haunted gospel wailing, that immediately made me think of White Horse's epic Revenant Gospels LP. Up next is "Devil", which feels like falling down from the purgatory to the bottom of the hell, all to an accompaniment of a choir of lost souls. "Anatomy of Terror" follows up this vibe, with dark brooding synth matched with titular vocal sample. "Satanic Panic" sounds like something that could easily be pulled from our Witch-House.com presents: Communion compilation, slow menacing beat led by faded buzzing synth. It has a bit of an early Dazed Marrow vibe mixed with ƧƆỴ†ɧЄ. The bonus track is a drone transmission, set somewhere between a dream and reality, great way to wrap up the release. – www.witch-house.com

 "Death" is a ghostly dirge, a slow-moving dark ambient funeral procession escorted by sombre keys and melancholic gospel vocals, leading the listener in a trance-like state to the "Devil". Track two amps up the tempo with its pulsating throbs and brooding synths, supported by an angelic choir in the background. Fans of early releases from V▲LH▲LL and ∆AIMON (as well as The Banks Brothers' "He’ll Roll Your Burdens Away") pay attention. – Mutant Zones

"The debut EP from Tenderness Of Wolves has finally landed. "Colours" consists of 8 horror-themed landscapes, which while rooted in the old school witch-house approach, manage to defy categorisation by the genre's modern standards." – Mutant Zones

DJ (cert.X)

I've decided to resurrect some of my old DJ mixes from many years ago, give them a bit of an update them and add them to my Mixcloud page.
If anyone is interested I'll make them available for download as well.
DJ (cert.X) was the moniker I was going to go by when I tried to get back into DJing and remixing about ten years ago, so I'm carrying it over as a kind of side project to Tenderness of Wolves.

Enjoy.

DJ (cert.X) – Apocalyptic Mix
