EMBRACE OF THORNS
EMBRACE OF THORNS started it’s nihilistic ,blasphemous way towards the grandeur of the final victory in 1998.The raging black/death manifestations are,since then,perpetually expanding and evolving,vomiting fire and curses,continuing the tradition of the incarnated forms of darkness that declared war on the unsuspected feeble zealots almost three decades ago in the temple of black/death vortex.

Begun as a purely experimental improvisational outlet in 2000 after the demise of Weakling, and existing concurrently with The Gault and Asunder, John Gossard began creating music with drummer Peter Blair, born out the ashes of Weakling, but constantly morphing through other realms of dark music. After nearly a decade of fermentation, a few unstable lineups, and countless worldly distractions, 2009 saw a stable lineup form with Todd Meister and Nikhil Sarma entering the picture. With a full lineup, many the skeletons created from the old recorded improvisations became the basis for fully composed material. In 2010 the rehearsal/demo tape “Rehearsal at Oboroten” was released and the band began making occasional live appearances. In late 2011 N.S. exited the group due to conflicting prior commitments. Dispirit played a handful of shows after N.S. departure thanks to the help Sean McGrath (Impaled, Ghoul) to fulfill our prior commitments. In mid 2012 the band recruited Ryan Jencks (Deathroes, Sixes, Crash Worship) on second guitar and in late 2012 recorded a second demo, “111112”. In mid 2013 P.B. retired for the band, and Jason Bursesse (Cyanic, Black Fucking Cancer) joined them as session drums for select shows. In 2014 the band recruited Trevor Deschryver (Lycus, ex-Deafheaven (yeah quit your whining already!)) on drums, but for how long?
Band was formed in summer of 2010. First demo, “Breathing Blackness,” recorded in January 2011 and self-released by the band in March. Debut album, “Fractured In the Timeless Abyss,” released on CD by Hellthrasher Productions in May 2012. Vinyl version released by Blood Harvest Records in October 2012. Live release “Rituals of Hallucination” recorded in Atlanta, GA in August of 2013 and issued as a limited cassette by Ritual Ugliness Productions in December of that year. Second full-length “Dark Abstraction” released on CD by Hellthrasher Productions in July 2015. The “4 Doors to Death” split featuring two Ectovoid songs followed on CD in January 2016.
