WOODS OF YPRES Merchandise Bundles Available to Benefit David Gold

Posted in News on 7th June 2012 by markssonofjorvik
On  Dec 21, 2011, there was a shock wave felt around the world when David  Gold of Ontario’s WOODS OF YPRES died on Highway 400. In loving memory  of this immensely talented artist and beautiful human being, the family  of David Gold has made available a range of merchandise bundles at this locaton.
Paypal information is included, so please make a purchase in memory of  the man that meant so much to so many with his creative, emotionally  deep contribution to music. All proceeds from the sales are used to  cover funeral costs and other expenses resulting from David’s death.
David’s mother Esther Gold wrote about her son in her e-mail to us and we are honored to assist in spreading the word.

We  and thousands of people are learning to live life without David. David  was courageous to create songs about love, love lost, facing challenges,  celebrating joys and accepting and understanding consequences of  another’s behavior. None have control over others, but one has control  of reactions and responses, and then makes choices. We all are survivors  of loss.
With  no exaggeration,  hundreds of people have contacted us  with  testimonies about how David’s lyrics impacted their lives, helped them  to make changes resulting in personal growth, motivating them and  inspiring them to follow their dreams.
As David’s family, of me, Esther, siblings Michael, Laura and Marie, we need help to promote David’s CD and merchandise sales.
We  had a Tribute concert in Toronto and one in Sault Ste. Marie. The Metal  Community has become family as we all share in our time of deep sorrow.  I was proudly, M.O.F., mom of four, now I am M.O.M., Mom of many. Those  who grieve David as a multi-talented musician, admit they grieve the  loss of their brother. I have become a Mom figure to many and David’s  siblings are now considered to be family to those who miss David.
There  is so much positive press created about David. It is said” when we are  born, we cry. We hope when we die, thousands cry.” In  David’s case,  thousands cried, and their lives are forever changed because their David  is no longer with them.
Thank  you for helping to honor my son, and to recognize all who must learn to  live life remembering David’s lyrics, “love the living while they are  alive,” and life is not the destination, but it is the journey.” David  admitted writing lyrics, with empathy, for those who needed to hear  them, or learn from them, and he wrote from his own experiences from his  heart and  from his soul. David was a man with many dimensions, not  just his music. He was well educated, with three university degrees, was  a teacher, a multi-talented musician, burned the candle from both ends,  with high energy and  determination. In the Finnish language is a word  “SISU.” David was “SISU,” personified.

Brume d’Automne’s Self-titled Album Coming June 12 th on Sepulchral Productions

Posted in News on 6th June 2012 by markssonofjorvik

Seven  years after their debut album, one of the forerunners of the “Métal  Noir Québécois” movement is back at last! Athros (Forteresse/Ur Falc’h)  and Nordet (Ur Falc’h) return with a self-titled album on June 12th (Sepulchral Productions) that is both harsher and more epic than
Fiers et Victorieux,  while keeping that firmly Québécois side which has gained the band many  fans since 2005. With a bit less emphasis on folkloric passages, and  with a rawer, more furious approach, on the new release Brume d’Automne  takes a stab at classic Black Metal, while incorporating its very own,  distinctive twist in what is yet again an album that those following  Québec’s Black Metal scene will not want to miss!

Brume d’Automne Cover Art & Track Listing:
Tels des Béliers
Traditionnelle 4
L’esprit du Courant
Rouge Souvenir d’Antan
Le Lieu de la Vengeance
Moé, j’me Souviens!
Saint Eustache – Traditionnelle 5
Quand les Corbeaux Crient leur Haine


Please get in touch with for all press inquires

Founded  in 2003 by Athros (Forteresse/Ur Falc’h) and Nordet (Ur Falc’h), Brume  d’Automne is considered as one of the forerunners of the “Métal Noir  Québécois” movement. Blending raw Black Metal with Québec’s  traditional/folkloric music, the group released their first album, Fiers et Victorieux,  in 2005. Even though the album had a large influence on Québec’s Black  Metal scene and helped shaped it as it stands today, the group went  dormant for five years afterwards, emerging again in 2010 on a split 7″  with Forteresse. At long last, the group will release their  eagerly-awaited sophomore album on June 12, 2012 through Sepulchral  Productions.


Brume d’Automne is:

Athros : Guitars, bass, drums
Nordet : Guitars, vocals
