More Info:

Double vinyl LP pressing. Holyname's watchword is preachcore, and their self-described sound of "holy drone violent worship" makes a lot of sense when you hear their songs. This album is essentially a love letter to Christ and a tribute to the history of eastern orthodoxy. A season of death and profound brokenness caused Tommy Green to dive deeply into the very beginnings of the church, seeking for the connection between holy orthodoxy and liturgical practices, and today's modern Pentecostal charismatic church. He found beauty in a hidden treasure that he didn't fully understand, his pain driving him to a place he never intended to go. Orthodox imagery is extremely influential to the graphics and lyrics of Holyname's work. The holy orthodox church and the historical origin of Christianity became very important to Tommy personally and that's why the imagery seems so saturated with traditional ancient orthodox Christianity. In addition to Tommy Green and Joe Holt, the Holyname project features mixing and mastering by Ryan Leitru, additional vocals from The REV Gang choir, Brook Reeves of Impending Doom, Eric Gregson of xDeathstarx, Joe Advent, Danon Saylor of Nothing Left, Ryan Clark of Demon Hunter, and Mike Felker of Convictions, with beats produced by Hunter Babcock of Wolf Skin
