Hailing from the continent down under, ALDER GLADE is a solo black metal act from Australia whose work could equally be described as emerging from the metaphorical “down under,” a dark and desolate forest which reeks of evil and isolation. Over the course of his 2 debut demos, ALDER GLADE creates passages of grinding black metal, eerie symphonies, and an organic sense of acoustic folk melodies. Exordium collects these first 2 demos and delivers them on a single hi-fi Chrome+ cassette inside a deluxe metal tin plus art/lyric booklet.

In a genre that often lacks discernible characteristics, ALDER GLADE manages to remain entirely memorable through dynamic movements of bleak unrest and overt triumph, delivered in a strange yet appropriate fidelity which merely adds to the unique sound that is ALDER GLADE.

– Pro-dubbed Chrome+ tape stock in black shells with silver imprinting
