1 - THISQUIETARMY - AFTERMATH + SETTING ASHES - (LP) 
DENOVALI


"Aftermath" was recorded in 2008-2009 and initially released on CD in 2010. At the time, the album was partially inspired and in respect to aesthetics by the works of German visual artist Anselm Kiefer: the imaginary setting takes place in the post-apocalyptic countryside and revolves around fallen angels as unexploded ordnances. In parallel, the compositions were also inspired by the sounds of crackling tubes and failing resistors captured from old vintage amplifiers during the recording process. Drones and melodies were built around these hissing sounds to create moods of tension and transitions from the remnants of destruction. These static interferences thus remained as important compositional elements, as if the whole themed-universe of the record stems from a faraway buzz, in which the dawn of a new era reveals itself. With "Aftermath", Thisquietarmy manages to create the perfect light and heavy post-nuclear winter atmosphere, with a glimmer of hope appearing slowly like sun rays through massive clouds of dust. "Setting Ashes" is in some way a coda to "Aftermath" as it was recorded in 2009 from a live improvised performance during the creative process of "Aftermath". The context of this recording took place during a Thisquietarmy-curated event called "Sunday Afternoon Drones" in a Montreal Mile-end caf, which the decaying decor of a 1970's apothecary remained. Initially intended for an EP to be released shortly after "Aftermath", these recordings have never found their way out until now. They were dug up for this special Double LP vinyl re-issue on Denovali Records in 2013. Vinyl: thick sleeves + thick printed inner sleeves; 180g vinyl; free download code.

2 - THISQUIETARMY - ANTHEMS FOR CATHARSIS - (LP) 
CONSOULING SOUNDS


Anthems for Catharsis marks the follow up to thisquietarmys last full length studio works "Rebirths", a representative collection of reworked tracks that have defined his purgative live performances. Between back-to-back tours in Europe & Asia and the release of live drone documents as well as collaborative works with Noveller, Aidan Baker/Hypnodrone Ensemble, Andr Foisy/Locrian, Syndrome/Amenra, thisquietarmys Eric Quach went back to the drawing board in his Montreal studio, at the end of 2014.Within the repetitive genre of ambient and drone, thisquietarmy constantly evolves and tries to incorporate new additional textures and structures into the music - for instance, think of the kraut rock shoegaze of "Resurgence", or the post rock doom of "Hex Mountains". However, in other to start fresh and shed skin from exhaustive influences, Quach strips his music down to the black bones. Anthems for Catharsis sounds very focused but also very very dark, not unlike a ritual cleansing or a detoxification. In dismantling his sound, thisquietarmy almost struck a black metal vein, resulting in a dark and brooding ice cold oozing of his signature drones.For fans of : Nadja, Aun, Jesu, Syndrome, Tim Hecker, Wolves in the Throne Room, Deafheaven.

6 - THISQUIETARMY - EXORCISMS - (LP) 
DENOVALI


In the fall of 2010, the New Harbours Music Series collective has invited Eric Quach to perform at the Christ's Church Cathedral, a 19th century historical building of architectural beauty in the center of the city of Hamilton, Canada. Without any preparation, he took the opportunity to record an improvised live set in front of an audience. Less than a year later, he returned for a second performance to complement his inceptive works. Mixed & edited as proper tracks during the winter & summer of 2012, both unique performances are respectfully presented on side A & B of a 12"" vinyl. Armed with his electric axe through a lethal arsenal of effect pedals & amplifiers, Quach brings out the demons by launching an ascent of drones into the throne. Once the uprise hits the cathedral walls, the propagating discord takes a life of their own and multiplies like evil spirits. As the struggle to tame and control them only make them grow louder and more powerful, the dark overwhelming waves of vibrations fill up the atmosphere like demonic clouds and come crashing down with an infernal intensity. Both side of the records present thisquietarmy's attempts to cast out the spiritual entities that he creates, from the possessed holy church. Not for the faint of heart. Vinyl: thick sleeves with thick printed inner sleeves; 180g vinyl; free download code

7 - THISQUIETARMY - HEX MOUNTAINS - (CD) 
DENOVALI


"As THISQUIETARMY, Canadian Eric Quach (Destroyalldreamers) explores never-ending spectrum of guitar ambience and loop drone sounds. Hex Mountains encompasses thisquietarmy's sonic growth through his latest travels & encounters across the world. Touring & sharing the stages with monumental bands such as Year of No Light, Caspian, Om, Deafheaven or Russian Circles has definitely marked his desire to take it up a notch. In an attempt to follow that ambition, Eric Quach leaves the misanthropy aside and enlists the help of drummer Scotty Rooney (Alaskan), bassist Dorian Williamson (Northumbria/Adoran) and vocalists milie Bresson & Jeanne Peluard (Monarch) to add fresh elements to TQA's sound: thundering drums, thick foggy bass and witch-like shrieks, while retaining thisquietarmy's signature drone-based soundscapes that remain omnipresent throughout the record.The collaborative sessions were recorded live in the Basque countryside and in various urban parts of Canada, then brought back together in the studio to extract its essence, crafting as a result TQA's heaviest and darkest album yet. The epic guitar riffs, the explosive melodies and the uplifting beats will make you soar, but the creepy noise sorcery, the mental screams and the weighty burden will also make you want to throw up. From one peak to the other, climbing Hex Mountains is one hell of a trek.

TRACKLISTING: 01. From Darkness 9:00 02. Wraithslayers 13:45 03. Digital Witchcraft 12:40 04. Spirits In Oblivion 8:26
