Third Human Sacrifice to Samhain is exactly what it sounds like: a bleak and unholy audio ritual in honor of Samhain from the Netherlands’ TORTURE CORPSE, master of filthy atmospheres and scathing sonic assaults. THStS exists as an audio accompaniment to the ancient pagan holiday celebrating the end of the harvest year through bonfires and slaughter of animals and humans alike. TORTURE CORPSE’S signature harsh buzzing is present, yet reserved, and serves as a droning foundation before blasphemous incantations in a foreign tongue appear over top, inciting the climactic end.

Clocking in at slightly under 5 minutes, THStS is a short & lo-fi but poignant single cut onto 6.66″ (seriously, measure it) clear polycarbonate lathe cut records and screen-printed with imagery to guide you in your own Samhain rituals.
