Incredible three-way assemblage of masterful HNW artists evoking the images and mysteries of mythical monsters from their respective cultural heritages.  Nightmare Castle summons ripping bloody moonlit severity in homage to the Loup Garou of the New Orleans region.  Fouke offers up a crackling mystical sketch of the legendary Fouke monster from the Arkansas territory of the US.  Dead Body Collection closes the split with a shredding piece of forest magic dedicated to the implike and eldritch Slavic spirit Leshy, keeper of the woods.  This is an amazing split simply by virtue of the artists involved, but beyond the pedigree, the concept (proffered by Nightmare Castle) is very cool and attaches the sometimes pointless intensity of HNW to something more deeply felt and tied to a shared global culture-the proliferation of mythology and storytelling-but no less scathing.
Altar Of Waste is beyond psyched to offer this document to the masses, a meeting place between three of HNW's most respected practitioners and a celebration of a worldwide commonality.  When all the technology has crumbled to the ground and humanity is reduced to a nomadic state, these stories will persist, terrify, and unite.
Packaged in a DVD case, with amazing original wraparound artwork by my girlfriend Gina Newman, in a limited edition of 30 hand-numbered copies.  $10 ppd. in the United States, $23 rest of world.
