Anyway, the Gauntlet has gone back on in order to announce a very special new release Tuesday, which features the first of three full-length 391 & the Army of Astraea albums set to debut on Bandcamp over the summer of 2022.
Two of these issues are archival in nature, and this one, "Lost Tracks Found - Demo Recordings 1984-1996" is the first. It is a clear companion to "Stubborn God Productions - Working Backwards '84-'96"; which chronicled group and duet recordings made in the same period. But what makes this album distinct is that it features "solo performer" guitar & voice driven songs and instrumentals rather than electronics.
Obviously these are era specific and much had to be done to create a uniform sound quality for the collection. Within reason the Gauntlet would describe the pieces as falling in the Post-Punk, Alternative-Rock, Folk-Rock, and Industrial-Rock genres.
As always the player is embedded below, so, listen, enjoy, share if you can, and please follow 391 & the Army of Astraea on Bandcamp (and the Gauntlet here of course).
Thanks so very, very much for supporting this aspect of my / our varied creative endeavors.
Till next time.
