“Patience“ is the third release from the Californian one-man project formed in 2006 by M. Rosin, and, according to Rosin himself represents Godheadscope’s “most complete bridging of modern composition and ambient with art-rock and folk." The EP has been released as digital download via Bandcamp. You can also stream the release through the player available below. The track listing is as follows:
3. Medusa In the Cistern
4. The Screaming Mound
Frostmoon Eclipse's Alcara, who contributes guitar melodies for the tracks “Solidarity” and “The Screaming Mound," is himself due to release an album for his Stroszek project in December of this year on Hypnotic Dirge Records. “Sound Graveyard Bound” will be the third full-length release from Stroszek, the band that allows Alcara not only to perform vocals, but also to display his consummate guitar skills in a more melodic, introspective fashion, as opposed to the black metal for which he is best known with Frostmoon Eclipse.

Releases Claudio Alcara, guitarist and founder member of Black Metallers FROSTMOON ECLIPSE has finished work on “Songs of Remorse”, the first album from his own band STROSZEK. Due for release shortly on the God is Myth label, the line-up includes Alcara on vocals and guitars, Richard on drums and Davide on bass.
“Songs of Remorse” is a complete departure from the Black Metal for which the guitarist is best known, although still much in evidence is the distinctive guitar style that gives FROSTMOON ECLIPSE - a band that tempers the Old School Black Metal sound with touches of lyrical acoustic guitar - their trademark sound. Comments Alcara “I wouldn’t call STROSZEK a ‘side project’ as such, it’s really just my material; something that has been inside me for a long time. The album title “Songs of Remorse” is fairly indicative of the subject matter. My manager asked me to define the style, and when I couldn’t she described it as being ‘Like driving along a deserted highway late at night with just your thoughts for company’. She nailed the feel of the album exactly”.
Alcara is currently preparing material for the next STROSZEK release, which will be a split with the US Psychedelic band GODHEADSCOPE, the solo project of Matt Rosin (CINDERVOICE, DEAD RAVEN CHOIR). As well as STROSZEK and FROSTMOON ECLIPSE, whose latest album “Another Face In Hell” has just been released, Alcara is also involved in the French Ambient band AERE AETERNUS, which includes members of DARK SANCTUARY and MACABRE OMEN in its ranks.
Three tracks from “Songs of Remorse” can be heard on the official STROSZEK MySpace page.
