Hold on, hold strong There will, be an end The Strength, it will come Just try, to stay warm Re-birth, destroys, the old, no more And know, all things that grow Comes back, to this earth Hold on, hold strong There will, be an end Re-birth, destroys, the old, no more

Close your eyes and get some sleep No more showing, the whites of your TEETH Pull the covers, over your head Once you've crawled, into bed And dream of things, far and near And dream of places, far and near The stress of the day will melt The stress of the day will melt The stress of the day will melt A W A Y Good night Good night Good night

about

Geist & the Sacred Ensemble re-emerge from their home in the land of Cascadia for their third album, Within. Continuing to evolve their singular craft, Within takes their doom-inflected folk ritualism and expands deeper into a gothic void with stomping, cavernous tunes like “Beyond This Vessel” and patient, meditative vibes as heard on “Sunstruck”. With opener “Ode To A Graey Sky” the group takes a trip across the breadth of their sonics. Beginning with nuanced textures of plucked guitar and rolling cymbal, the tune rips into an otherworldly heaviness, frontman Michael Sauder’s gritty wail leading the lumbering charge. The scope of atmospherics and mood elevates Within into a cohesive, enveloping album like staring straight into the sun and seeing only an eclipse. - Moon Glyph


"Geist & the Sacred Ensemble are worthy of any psychedelic folk and doom lover’s full attention, and I personally would travel far to witness them live." - Utu Lautturi, Heathen Harvest

"Within is a whole other beast, and it is a bleak, soul crushing one at that." - Jason C, Tiny Mix Tapes

"... it flows like an initiation rite, pulsing from subtle bass rhythms and the ambient chatter of percussion and chimes through to heavy-lidded gloom and bleak dirges that herald the arrival of some destroyer."- Rob Gannon, [sic] Magazine
