“This special split tape is made up of the two solo projects from each member of Servile Sect.  It’s neat to see the personalities of the duo go off in their own individual directions.  Sadness Saturn is the first we encounter and this is a straight up reverb-ridden black metal outing.  It kicks off with a turbulent sea of tumultuous riffs that are thick and heavy with crunch.  The vocals are twisted and tortured.  The rest of the side leaves you with a concentrated tempest of distortion that howls like a deep wind and sprays you with its saturated sullen downpours.  It sets the mood for indulgent psychosomatic masochism and self-inflicted emotional injury.  Total despair mingled with sheer evil.  Golden Raven is a little more psychedelic.  It has a few light chords repeating mixed with some foggy amps looming in the background and some funky effects.  The fog becomes thicker and envelops the whole vibe.  It all gives way to entrancing loops that will have you seeing colors in the midst of the blackness.  Sylvester Anfang II-like monotone incantations cut through the illusory auras and make the track even trippier.  Eventually it shifts into rainbow and light play through synth work.  This split is very telling because we see the two extreme sides of Servile Sect played out.  Each guy leans in a different direction and their regular collaborative efforts are where the extremes find a middle common ground.  Servile Sect is best described as a psych black metal act.  But with Sadness Saturn we see the black metal side really stand out and with Golden Haven we really see the psych freakiness come out.  It’s really pretty awesome to see it all unfold.  The art for this tape is really pretty rad too.  It combines a Sadness Saturn’s dark brooding quality with Golden Haven’s spaced out cosmic psychedelia in the design.  Beautiful pro imprinted clear colored tapes.  Super limited.” – Foxy Digitalis
