Harvest Rain are an Esoteric & Heathen NeoFolk/Ethereal Band floating amidst Archetypes and are of the light of the Black Sun, of the Green Ray. Any Initiate will understand.
Sometimes the Dark Hymns are reminiscent of Death in June or Sol Invictus, while others they are channeling Joy Division.
“This album is the Sister album to HARVEST RAIN “Blood Hymns”. It also contains the original members of HARVEST RAIN. The songs were recorded during the same Yuletide – Winter Solstice Sessions as the tracks on “Blood Hymns”. This version of “Thuletide” is the original. I added the icy keyboard version on BLOOD HYMNS later on right before that album was released. This album was in fact the original album that I had released under the moniker of “CAIN RIVER” instead of HARVEST RAIN. It was my first attempt at playing HARVEST RAIN with electric guitars, drums and record what one could call a “rock” or “dark wave” album instead of being strictly limited to dark folk. The extra tracks were recorded mostly during the same sessions, but kept off of any albums.”
Each copy we have has been exclusively signed by Jason Thompkins, including his BindRune.
