Cardinals Folly Material To Be Reissued As "Strange Conflicts Of The Past"

Shadow Kingdom Records has set June 11, 2013 as the release date for "Strange Conflicts of the Past," a collection of early recordings from Finnish heavy/doom Metal band Cardinals Folly. One of the best Finnish bands performing this style, their early material is all out of print and impossible to get. This is a fine package of all of their early works and arguably their very best material.

The tracks 1-3 are from the "Heretic's Hangover" EP, which was released in early 2008 as the first release under the name of Cardinals Folly. This release was just a few hundred copies and was sold out pretty fast. They left out the last track of this EP, "Uncharted Seas" because that was already on the debut album. Shadow Kingdom wanted to offer some unreleased stuff instead.

Tracks 5-8 are from the "Orthodox Faces" EP (2009), which was also sold out quickly and received a notable welcoming in the doom circles. Tracks 4,9 and 10 are unreleased tracks from the same era of these two EPs, also recorded in 2008-2009. Track 4 was featured on The Coven's 2006 demo-EP "Beltane," but this version of the song is much better, as it's recorded in 2008 with the Cardinals Folly line-up. Below is the tracklisting and cover art of "Strange Conflicts of the Past."
