Metal / Re: OUT NOW: Orationem - Your Presence and Strength (October 2016)
« on: December 19, 2016, 09:13:36 PM »
I had a goal set for myself to get the new "Your Presence and Strength" album uploaded to YouTube by Christmas.
Goal complete.  ;)

Here's the lyric videos playlist for the entire "Your Presence and Strength" album.

A few announcements.  Since there's a limited pressing of this album which will eventually run out, and Vision of God Records is going to do a special pro-press of the self-titled and Fulfiller (ON ONE CD!), whichever happens first, I will stop selling Orationem merch (CDs and shirts) from the dot com, most likely sometime in 2017.  This will be the first step towards the newer music, which will be individual songs/prayers on YouTube.

Metal / OUT NOW: Orationem - Your Presence and Strength (October 2016)
« on: October 25, 2016, 06:36:21 PM »

Its here folks!  The fourth full length Orationem album is now available to order!
7 tracks, 48:22 running time.  This was supposed to be limit 50 copies, but the pressing plant sent me extras! so...  Limit 75!
These CDs are $8 plus shipping.

This is some very intense, raw and harsh black metal with violin/cello symphonic attacks.  The lyrics once again do not compromise, and are full on prayers to God and his Son, Jesus Christ.

You can place an order, read the lyrics, listen to samples, view information about the album at

You can also preview this album from this YouTube video.

This is a Vision of God Records release and they will also have have copies available at: http://www.visionofgodrecords.com

Since most of you knew I not only recorded this while fighting cancer, but also while being sick from chemotherapy.  I'd like to share the lyrics from the first track, which I hold close to my heart...

I. To Turn This Ailment

Oh great Healer and Protector
Jesus Christ in heaven
Please carry me through
this path of pain

For a long time
I have suffered
with sickness and discomfort

Cancer has taken from me
quality of life
forcing me to rely on others
for a year

I know there is a reason
I have survived
I know there is a reason
that I am going through this

I continue to pray
for relief of my symptoms
For the knowledge of Your will
and that one day
I will be able to turn this ailment
into strength

Thank you everyone that places an order.  Everyone that gets a CD, I'll be more than happy to send you MP3s of the album while you wait for it to be delivered - IF YOU ASK FOR IT!  Also, if you're not interested in a CD but a high quality digital release, for this forum, if you PayPal $4 to thomas@ankouawaits.com, I'll email you a direct download to 320KBs tagged MP3s ASAP.

Any questions?  Please let me know!

Thanks again, and God Bless,

Feels good to go against the grain and rebel against the same old tired black metal themes, not to mention, there's a decent demand for releases like this.  I'm far from the first or last to play black metal that's holy and spiritual in nature.

The Official Orationem YouTube Channel now has lyric videos for all tracks from the debut "Self Titled" and "Fulfiller, Sustainer, Preserving Protector" albums.  There are also Black Metal Prayer sessions that feature 4 panels showing all parts played for unique/remixed Orationem tracks.  Here is the first session:

Metal / Orationem - Not Live in Central Illinois (YouTube)
« on: August 05, 2016, 10:05:07 PM »
Orationem (pronounced Oh-Ray-Shun-Em) is Latin for the word "prayer", specifically referring to spoken prayer. This is a black metal project from the United States that has a very traditional "mid-90ís" black metal sound and performance. The music ranges from extremely fast to mid pace, with very emotional melodies. The lyrics focus entirely on prayers to the Almighty God in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ.

"Not Live in Central Illinois Ė A Night of Black Metal for Christ" is a special 62 minute recording featuring 10 songs from the first 2 full length Orationem studio albums, presented in a live show manner!  Formerly a purchasable digital download, it is now available for free streaming on YouTube!


The "Sobrwydd a Disgyblaeth" cassettes are now in stock!


The fifth full length Ankou Awaits album "Sobrwydd a Disgyblaeth" is available on CD through No Sleep Till Megiddo Records. 
The Cassette release is coming soon.

Also available through Wulfrune Worxxx are cvlt cassette releases of the 4 prior full length albums.  (Lebor Gabala Erenn, Crog Buidhe, Wyllt and Oberour Ar Maro).  CDs are also still available for most of these albums.

All CDs are $8, (except the DVD-Case release of Oberour Ar Maro)
All Cassettes are $6. 

Everything can easily be purchased at:

The Ankou Awaits interview with Forbidden Magazine is published!  Please click the link here to read about Wyllt, my songwriting and other questions answered!
With Sleepwalker of Forbidden Magazine about Wyllt and the Ankou Awaits project ~ April 12th 2013

Review of Wyllt at blackmetalreviews.com

If you like your Black Metal Ďby-the-numbersí, then donít approach this.
Itís complete fucking madness from start to finish, boasting some of the most
incongruous song structures known to man or beast. This is one strange journey
and it can become a difficult one at times but I think itís refreshing to find
something so genuinely odd in todayís dot-to-dot musical landscape.
Love it or hate it, Ankou Awaits will certainly make an impression on you.
And thatís what we need; to be moved.

Review of Wyllt coming soon from Lords of Metal and Forbidden Magazine as well!

Metal / New from Ankou Awaits, "Wyllt" (Black Plague Records)
« on: March 19, 2013, 05:56:58 PM »

Ankou Awaits - Wyllt
Track listing:

I. With Sword in Hand
II. The Blackened Faced Warrior
III. Heading Down the Path to Destiny
IV. With Madness in His Eyes
V. Among the Waste of War
VI. Along with His Sanity

This is the 3rd full length release from the Deathened Black Metal project, Ankou Awaits.  43 minutes of blistering metal which can only be described as a marriage of the most heinous and emotional black metal with the most gut wrenching and maniacal death metal.  Released on Black Plague Records.

There are two full tracks from the album on YouTube:

You can listen to two minute samples of each song (as well as the previous releases) at:

Wyllt is available for digital download at iTunes, AmazonMP3 and other places for $5 and some change.  The price depends on which place you buy it from.  If you have a Rhapsody account, you can download the album for free.  If you don't, you can sign up for a free trial and stream the whole album if you want to check it out before you buy a disc of it.  The CDs are being pressed and will be available March 30th 2013, but you can pre-order the albums (and order the other in stock CDs from previous releases) for $10 and that includes shipping worldwide.

Here's the link for digital downloads and CDs:

If anyone wants to help spread the word about this album, or review the album on the Encyclopedia Metallum, Spirit of Metal, on their own site, etc. I'm not above giving away music to do so.  Please contact me at thomas at ankouawaits dot com.  Any questions, concerns or comments can be sent there as well.

Thank you for your time,

Metal / Affordable Audio Mastering - Dakr Gremmil Studio
« on: May 01, 2011, 03:16:17 PM »
Just wanted everyone to know that I've got an audio mastering service. 
I specialize in extreme metal (especially black metal) and noise/experimental music.

The offer is, I'll master a full album (up to 74 minutes of music) for $20. 
(Singles and EP prices can be negotiated separately).

How it works, you fill out the form here and give me a link to one song you'd like to have mastered.  I'll send my mastered version of the song back to you, FREE of charge.

Confused or skeptical about mastering processes?  Worst case scenario is that you'll have a FREE mastered song.

This first week in April 2011 is the first time this service was mentioned publicly.  I've mastered over 20 albums just from word of mouth and personal connections, and most of those were repeat customers.

Most albums will be completed within 48 hours....  Close personal contact will be kept to ensure 100% customer satisfaction.  Even though this isn't Burger King, you can still have it your way.  I'll do everything I can to ensure we get the results you want, even if it takes multiple attempts.

So, whether you've been messing around with a 4-track, or spent some quality time in the studio....  Whether you want to polish up that old album, or get improved sonics to some new tracks, please try out my mastering methods through Dakr Gremmil Studio.

If you've got a pile of questions, feel free to ask.  Just fill out the form here and I'll get back to you ASAP.

Thanks for your time and your business!

~Tom (Hguols)


Metal / Hguols - Depiction Under The Obscure Seclusion
« on: May 01, 2011, 03:15:44 PM »

I already had most of the sheet music written in February, but the recording process took two long months to get the production just right, plus some additional on-the-spot writing.
This release is my crowning achievement! I'm so pleased with how this turned out!

Available in CD format - wholesale deals available for distributors
Available as a digital release, iTunes, rhapsody, Amazon MP3, etc.
