Leviathan - Leviathan 5-CD Box
Limited to 500 copies.
Comes with a fold out poster. Leviathan is an American ambient black metal solo project that started in 1998 by Jef Whitehead, using the pseudonym Wrest. In Leviathan, Wrest records and plays all instruments including vocals entirely on his own. Additionally, Wrest has collaborated with the band Sunn O))), and is an active member of the U.S. black metal supergroup Twilight. He has stated in interviews that he has been playing drums longer than any other instrument and that the drums are his instrument of choice. Wrest also plays and records everything in his other project Lurker of Chalice. Regarding his writing, Wrest says that most of his lyrics are about suicide and that “lyrics are important and also very hard for me... at times, the way things come out in words sounds like nonsense. I don’t consider myself a poet by any means.” Leviathan’s latest album, Scar Sighted was released on 3 March, 2015 on Profound Lore Records. This boxed set contains 5 albums released while Leviathan was a Moribund recording artist and these 5 albums are: The Tenth Sub Level of Suicide (Full-length 2003) Tentacles of Whorror (Full-length 2004) A Silhouette in Splinters (Full-length 2005) Howl Mockery at the Cross (Compilation 2005) Massive Conspiracy Against All Life (Full-length 2008) All albums are re-issued on Hammerheart Records seperately as deluxe digipack editions.
