about

Originally released in an edition of 300 7" records by Bathetic Records.

"Wreathes unveil magical, trance-inducing folk that slides in and around you like a white plume of smoke on a coal black night. Elegant, hypnotic, spellbinding arrangements to pull the soul from the enchanted forest and lay it right on your head." - Bathetic

''...tribal worship hymn with furiously driven string arrangements, sparse acoustics and Gregorian sounding chants. Bathetic calls it haunted folk, but I'm banking more toward spiritual. Then again, what's the difference?'' - Get Off The Coast

''[The Reigns] feels like some legendary beast. Awoken by an ancient magic, it shakes off the moss and the earth and begins its journey...smear yourself with warpaint and dance around the bonfire, because these reigns will take hold of you.'' - Cactus-Mouth

about

Wreathes Wisconsin

Nathaniel Ritter and Troy Schafer, who started their dark music intimacy within a preceding band, the well-beloved Kinit Her, climb to a higher level within this same architecture with Wreathes. They continue to work with a maelstrom of percussion, catchy guitar hooks, dreamy horn arrangements, and the commanding presence of their voices ever-locked in the soaring harmonies of their perennialism. ... more

Track Name: The Reigns
So we may take the reigns,
transform our anguish,
transform our ordeal.

So we may take the reigns,
transform our burden,
transform our downfall.

From the center,
we pour outward.
To the core we recoil,
souls murdered.

Of the essence we will conceal.
For the polestar we shall reveal.

From the axis,
we search without.
Back from the fulcrum,
we all fade out.

Of the structure we hide in sight.
For the root we shall bathe in torchlight.

From the seat,
we swell spiraling.
To the last bed,
we fall inhaling.

Of the nave we veil in honor.
For the last heart that beats with vigor.

The alchemy of one and all,
up through the sky,
down through the depths.

The alchemy of all and one,
up through the sky,
down through depths.
Track Name: Full Turn
Seize thine crises.
Ride the tiger.
Slay thine cattle.
Clench the dagger.

Loosen thy grip.
Peel back the frame.
A crooked cross.
A single flame.

Light up your tears,
cross far-blown seas
All Twelves and Nines.
Their names divine.

Seize thine crises.
Ride the tiger.
Slay thine cattle.
Clench the dagger.

Bear your gospel.
Raise temple prayer.
All the who bled,
a wax-filled bed.

Loosen thy grip,
peel back the frame.
A crooked cross.
A single flame.

Pray, defend, take ahold.
Nurture, preserve, take control.
Arrest, embrace, take ahold.
Grapple, conquer, take control.
Pray, defend, take ahold.
Nurture, preserve, take control.
Arrest, embrace, take ahold.
Grapple, conquer, take control.

Seize thine crises.
Ride the tiger.
Slay thine cattle.
Clench the dagger.
