Yo, long time no update.

First off, the following items are sold out and I, or the labels they came out on, will never have them again (so if you have a copy, cherish it).

Auspicium - Dawnland (Thorn Laceration Records #/60)
Auspicium/Avulse - I'll Still Laugh when All Around Me is Dust (Darkness Shade Records, 2 covers #/16, #/50)
Avulse - Thousand Year Goatreich (Darkness Shade Records #/25)

Wholy Failure is sold out. I will probably repress a smaller run soon when the rest of my Trilogy of Human Extinction comes out. NEfOM was the first chapter in that. This December will bring the second, Avulse - Granted but Grace from this World, on Darkness Shade Records. The final piece will be out in 2010 and is the long awaited "Death Will Claim Us All" LP from Auspicium.

In other Auspicium news, the split with the artist sometimes known as Jake Newcomb is back up and closer than ever to completion. Look for it sometime in the next few months.

June update

We strongly advise you to go to Darkness Shade Records and pre-order a copy of the Avulse/Auspicium split. Only 66 copies, and 16 of them are with a special artwork, done by Subtrocity. Seriously. If these go even half as fast as Thousand Year Goatreich did, they'll still be gone before you know it.

Standard Artwork

Limited Artwork


In First Church specific news, we are now taking orders for our first release. So here is ISL-001:
Wholy Failure - New Endtimes for Old Models
Wholy Failure plays Harsh ritualistic ambient drone, that occasionally crosses into Power Electronics territory. Unpretty, Unrelenting, Unmusic.
This release will be limited to 25. It will be priced $2.00 plus shipping. To order, send an Email to patrickahasson@gmail.com

Some news.

So the cassette version of Thousand Year Goatreich is available on Darkness Shade Records. You better get a copy now because they only made 25. All are hand-numbered in blood and a limited number come with a fragment of bone. Get it while its hot. http://www.darknessshaderecords.cjb.net/

A piddly distro list at the moment + Upcoming projects

Current Distro List:

Auspicium - Valde Atra Mare (tape, Baleful Benediction Records) Atmospheric black metal journey along rocky shores, jagged breakers, and majestic forests. $4

Working on beefing it up some.
In upcoming release news, we intend (at some point) release the new Auspicium full-length, Death Will Claim Us All. Also on the burner is the first demo from Avulse, entitled Thousand Year Goatreich. We will keep you updated on the process of these and any other new devolpments.


This is the website for The First Church of the Left- Hand Path. We are a record label from Maine that specializes in music that flows against the current. We salute the individualist, as we believe the Left Hand Path is that of choice, freedom, and individuality, as opposed to the Right Hand Path of servitude, slavery, and bondage. We cater mainly to the bands that populate the outer fringes of subculture. Black Metal, Death Metal, Hardcore, Grindcore, Noise, Neo-folk. We will however release artists outside of this realm if they have sufficient merit and fall into our taste in music (which is very wide).
