CARDINALS FOLLY - Strange Conflicts Of The Past (CD)
Finland | Doom
Cardinals Folly have been quietly one of the best Finnish Heavy / Doom Metal bands to date. Their early material is all out of print and impossible to get. This is a fine package of all of their early works and arguably their very best material. The tracks 1-3 are from the "Heretic's Hangover" EP, which was released in early 2008 as the first release under the name of Cardinals Folly. This release was just few hundred copies and was sold out pretty fast. They left out the last track of this EP, "Uncharted Seas" because that was already on the debut album. We wanted to give some unreleased stuff instead. Tracks 5-8 are from the "Orthodox Faces" EP (2009), which was also sold out quickly and received a notable welcoming in the doom circles. Tracks 4,9 and 10 are unreleased tracks from the same era of these two EP's, also recorded in 2008-2009. Track 4 was featured on The Coven's 2006 demo-EP "Beltane", but this version of the song is much better, as it's recorded in 2008 with the Cardinals Folly line-up.
