Twilight Fauna is an atmospheric metal band focused on Appalachia. It is a one man project. I play all the instruments, record, mix, and master all recordings. Various labels have released Twilight Fauna's 3 full length and 2 split albums in the past 2 years.
I would like to be able to produce a limited edition (15 copies) 7" lathe cut vinyl record that would include 2 of my songs or roughly 7 minutes per side. The vinyl would be clear and the records would be square. Lathe cut vinyl costs more per piece than traditional vinyl but is made one piece at a time and cut in real time with slight imperfections making each record a unique piece of art. Due to the lathe cutting process they may have a bit more surface noise than a pressed record but they last just as long.
Audio Geography (audiogeography.com) will manufacture the records. I have already been in touch with them and they are ready to move forward. Manufacturing time takes about a month, so estimate around 6 weeks to 2 months before receiving your copy (if you donate at least $17). Audio Geography will mail them to me and I will mail your copy to you as soon as possible. Please be patient if it runs a bit behind schedule.
As for the songs, one has already been released on the split with Crown of Asteria, but I feel it deserves to be on this record and would compliment the other song nicely. The other side will be a previously unreleased track that features both the acoustic and atmospheric black metal aspects of the band. You can stream the previously released track here: http://twilightfauna.bandcamp.com/track/twilight-fauna-by-starlight
I hope you will contribute whatever you can. I am not looking to make any profit from this, I just want to be able to have them made. If I surpass the goal, I will use any remaining money to have additional copies manufactured. This is a chance for you to contribute to and own a unique piece of art.
Risks and challenges
There are always potential hazards when dealing with audio and vinyl, but from my end the songs are done, and the manufacturer, Audio Geography is well known in the music community and has a long track record of producing quality recordings.
Potential production delays are always possible so that is a possibility. However, you will receive what you paid for and if, due to something unforeseen, the project doesn't happen your money will be fully refunded. I am happy to answer any questions so message the Twilight Fauna facebook page or email me at firstname.lastname@example.orgLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
