  4. The Elements’ Rage (A Clash of the Stars and Moon) OUT NOW

    The Elements’ Rage (A Clash of the Stars and Moon)

    The most ambitious expression yet of the West Country guitarist’s heavy rural sound: a tumultuous tempest which will burn your windmills and rip the tiles from your roof.

    Inspired by the storm that swept across the southern British Isles in November 1703, the single epic track on Urthona’s fourth solo album builds from the disquieting sound of an approaching storm and accelerates into a full-on psychedelic maelstrom of colossal guitars, wrecked drums, Townshendian feedback and entirely appropriate (and painstakingly gathered) field recordings.

    The Elements’ Rage (A Clash of the Stars and Moon) CD comes in beautiful four-panel fold-out packaging with a 12-page pull-out, printed using vegetable based inks on 100% post-consumer recycled board. Initial copies come with an additional strictly limited hand-printed insert created by Urthona. The album is also available as a download.

    Both versions are available here.
