The Portals of Hell open once more…

This Beastly collection assembles 16 subterranean jewels in an all-new Daemonic Experience.

Witness the haunted carousel of broken Nashville nightmares – Murderous Cuckolds, Luciferian Anthems, Ghostly Parables, Windswept Hills of Regret and Silent, Final Graves to Forget.
Sometimes grim, often beautiful – this monumental anthology of knowns and unknowns, battered Opry icons and weathered regional evangelists features tales of Jilted Homicidal Rage, Loveless Bondage, Stygian Hellscapes, Rapturous Revelations and Gospel Tribulations.

Originally waxed in often penurious amounts, these Troubled Troubadours sing of Spectral Autocides, Paranormal Marionettes, Doomed Hallucinogenic Psychoses, Apocalyptic Arborists, Aquatic Defenestrations and Cadaverous Transmigrations.

Years in the making – ‘Hillbillies In Hell: A Chrestomathy’ walks the uncanny valley, crosses the rivers of regret and conquers the mountains of madness – a midnight clutch of Brazen Satanic Torments, Treacherous Bloody Lovers, Unquiet Infanticidal Voids, Drug-Fuelled Delusions, the Creator’s Boundless Sight and God’s Blazing, Eternal Light.

A dank, derelict crypt of marginal 45s – some of these sides are impossibly rare and are reissued here for the very first time.

All for your primordial listening pleasure.
