New Album Announcement! Valentine Wolfe presents

The Elegiac Repose

9 tracks of death positive melancholy, mourning, grief and loss, hope and love. The track listing is subject to change, but will include:

  • Sorrow for Eternity
  • The Sin Eater
  • Melancholy is the Devil's Bath
  • Taphophilia
  • Porcelain Creature
  • Death and the Maiden
  • Softy Shall You Sleep
  • Prospero's Farewell (for HMB)
  • Last Kiss

 

We're in the final stages of composition-just tweaking the arrangements and flow of a few of the tracks. The Elegiac Repose (eh-LEE-gee-ak) will feature the longest Valentine Wolfe song to date-Death and the Maiden is a shade longer than the epic version of Annabel Lee. And here's the best part: we're teaming up with Egregore Designs for a unique package. We'll be launching a Kickstarter for pre-orders in July. Recording is also in process: Sarah's got some great vocals already finished, and after ConCarolinas, we'll start with Braxton's bass parts. 

Releasing September/October, 2017. 

 

We have been wanting to write a an epic song about Mary Shelley for some time now, but we had trouble conceptualizing the project. Then with Valentine’s Day approaching, we thought it would be so cool to turn this poem by Mary Shelley into a Valentine’s Day song! We added a few of our own lyrics, but kept hers as they are.

A Valentine for Frankenstein

Don’t break my heart this time

Will he betray my gentle trust

Will horror rule the night?

 

My heart bleeds for you

My soul yearns for you

Will horror rule this night?

 

Oh, come to me in dreams, my love!

  I will not ask a dearer bliss;

Come with the starry beams, my love,

  And press mine eyelids with thy kiss.

 

’Twas thus, as ancient fables tell,

  Love visited a Grecian maid,

Till she disturbed the sacred spell,

  And woke to find her hopes betrayed.

 

But gentle sleep shall veil my sight,

  And Psyche’s lamp shall darkling be,

When, in the visions of the night,

  Thou dost renew thy vows to me.

 

Then come to me in dreams, my love,

  I will not ask a dearer bliss;

Come with the starry beams, my love,

  And press mine eyelids with thy kiss.

 

The epic version of Annabel Lee is now available on CDBaby!
