As Ostara calls, voice burning through the wind, Eostre magnified by the timelessness of our untouchable minds…
We return to origins in the birth of this new seed.

Echtra's "Echtra I" is a meditative journey into a structureless world, using the foundational sonics of Black Metal to loosen the hold of civilized consciousness. Eschewing songwriting as entertainment in favor of a monochromatic, trance-inducing march, Echtra hand-drills a spark that will purify both the interior spirals and the chthonic paradisal fields. A friction fire of the Soul, "Burn It All Away" is an opportunity for the reclamation of Truth and a rekindling of the bright flame now dormant in the heart of the People, an invitation to lay waste to the landscapes of despair.
Created at the onset of Echtra's life, in the year MMIII, utilized in ritual performance in the wilds of Cascadia that same year, then self-released in an edition of 76 in MMIV, now reborn as dictated by the spirits and for the benefit of all beings.

Echtra is dedicated to awakening, for all who may partake of its fruits. ... more
