Purity Through Fire is proud to present Helvellyn's highly anticipated debut album, The Lore of the Cloaked Assembly, on digipack CD and vinyl LP formats. 
The CD version was released on November 4th while the vinyl version will follow next year. The tape version is to be released by Worship Tapes.
Formed in 2010, Helvellyn are part of the Cumbrian Black Metal orbiting around the incredibly prolific P.G., who currently numbers labelmates Thy Dying Light, Nefarious Dusk, Úlfarr, and Morte Lune among his many endeavors. Joining him in Helvellyn are other equally prolific members of the UK metal underground whose credits also include Thy Dying Light as well as Heathen Deity, Volition, Skiddaw, Adder and Absinthropy among many others.

Now, after a handful of short-length releases, Helvellyn arrive with their debut album, The Lore of the Cloaked Assembly
No more but definitely no less, The Lore of the Cloaked Assembly is a compact summation of the Helvellyn aesthetic during the past decade, but sharpened to ice-cold perfection. Theirs is a deliberately (and proudly) traditional style of black metal set somewhere around 1995; the paradigmatic works of earliest Dodheimsgard, Gorgoroth, and especially Darkthrone as well as later gatekeepers like Armagedda and Sweden's Craft keep the parameters pure and cold. 
Indeed, to say The Lore of the Cloaked Assembly could've come out on Malicious Records back in the mid '90s should be viewed as the highest of compliments, so cryogenically authentic is Helvellyn's attack here. 

Those who know, KNOW, for this is The Lore of the Cloaked Assembly!
