Looks like Halloween and Christmas come early this year! Chapel Hill one-man doom-drone euphorist Horseback and Chicago's ridiculously prolific séance organizers Locrian have proved themselves to be quite the excellent sparring partners on last year's vinyl-only New Dominions 12-inch (ed. 477) and self-titled 7-inch (ed. 300). Luckily the fine folks have Relapse have saved these four spectacular sides from record collector obscurity (and added a James Plotkin remix) for their swagged-out New Dominions reissue, coming via CD and vinyl November 9. The album's centerpiece is the 14-minute solitary-confinement anthem "Our Epitaph" which mixes both artist's propensity for terrifying-yet-transcendent dronework with a feedbacky pulse like Joy Division gone totally joyless. Hear it below!
