We are Gehtika and we bring you blackened death metal from the UK!
Following on from the success of our album, "A Monster In Mourning", we now bring you a new EP of equally monstrous proportions...welcome to "THE GREAT RECLAMATION".
Delivering our most comprehensive release to date, The Great Reclamation offers everything from blistering, raging pace & brutality to epic & emotive orchestral compositions, all of which take you on a journey through our dark cautionary tale.
Recorded, mixed & mastered by legendary metal producer Russ Russell (Dimmu Borgir & Napalm Death) we have gone all out for this one!
Imagine if some of those myths, sagas, beasts & gods from Norse mythology were in fact rooted in truths lost to time & tales...
Jörð, the Norse goddess of the Earth, has grown tired of mankind's greed and destruction over the centuries; from the pillaging Vikings of old seeking their fame through legend, to the corporate wealth and vanity driven modern world and all of their "concrete kingdoms"; their lust for total ruination has gone too far...summoning the beasts and giants of old to arise once more; now is the time to reclaim what is rightfully hers!
With humanity driven to the desolate ends of the Earth, becoming the living embodiment of their most heinous sins, the internal skirmishes amongst the divergent factions of "man" have become as much of a threat to their survival as the beasts that hunt them...
WHAT ARE WE FUNDING?
We have paid for the recording already; the EP is completed & ready for release! We need you spiffing ladies & gents to help get the "The Great Reclamation" out into the wider world in physical form; CD's, t-shirts, patches, hoodies...much of which will be limited edition, solely for all of those of you who back this Kickstarter campaign! A limited edition pre-order, in part...
Backers will receive THREE bonus orchestral tracks - these will be variations of three of the tracks on "The Great Reclamation" EP and will not be released ever again, anywhere, after this campaign!
We also want to offer some one off, unique and fun opportunities to go along with your shiny new purchase, such as; pre-release party with the band, a cover recording of your choice, a guest appearance on your bands recording, along with many many more!
We will have a series of stretch goals which, if hit, will expand certain pledge levels as well as help us to cover some PR costs to make sure we can spread this release as far as possible! In addition, we may even be able to produce higher quality music videos, extended touring and more merch!
Kickstarter is an ALL OR NOTHING platform, so if we don't meet or break our target then your money will be refunded! However, that'd unfortunately mean that we wouldn't be able to fund the huge release we're hoping for...and wouldn't be able to afford any of these spiffing rewards!
Any donation, big or small, will go a long way and mean the world to us! PLEASE SHARE AND SPREAD THE WORD about our Kickstarter campaign and help us to achieve (if not beat) our goal! Facebook, Twitter, word of mouth; however you can spread the word of this campaign, it really will mean everything to us. We can't put into words just how much your amazing support is appreciated! You brought "A Monster In Mourning" to life; and now we need your help once more to bring forth "The Great Reclamation".
Here's the album artwork for "The Great Reclamation" - created by Remy Cooper of Headsplit Design.
The artwork depicts a "blood eagle"; a ritualised method of execution, detailed in late skaldic poetry. The victim was placed prone, the ribs severed from the vertebral column with a sharp implement and the lungs pulled through the opening to create a pair of “wings”...NICE!!
Risks and challenges
The recording is complete, as is the artwork, so everything is ready to roll! Although we do not foresee any issues, we are however at the mercy of printing schedules and any potential delays in relation to that...that and the postman! Other than that, once the Kickstarter campaign is funded and we have received said funds; we are all prepped and ready to go to print! We will of course keep you posted of any delays should they arise.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
