ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Some histories are too dark to share with the bright, careless world out there. They should be read in here, in the shadows, for it is in the shadows that they were born..."

If you are the sort of callow, romantic fool who prefers truths to be unspoken and illusions to remain unshattered, then do not, we pray you, read on, for it is a dark and terrible tale that we have to tell. Only on this page of this website will the entire story be made clear. You have been warned.

OK. Are only the genuine seekers after wisdom left? Then read on:

Basically, this is all made up. By us.

The Book of the Lost is the result of a year-long collaboration between Emily Jones and The Rowan Amber Mill, born out of a shared love of British horror movies, and those of the type loosely described as folk horror in particular.

With sneaked childhood viewings of the likes of The Wicker Man, Witchfinder General, Blood on Satan’s Claw and Psychomania still unsettling our collective memories, we set upon the task of constructing in meticulous detail a number of our own lost folk horror movies (complete with synopsis, cast and crew, production companies etc) and, from that basis, writing and recording songs and dialogue pieces inspired by these imaginary creations.

To neatly tie up this dark gathering of lost films, we chose the device of a decidedly low budget, hastily slung together television series which would play these movies (fittingly in the “graveyard” slot) and thus was born “The Book of the Lost”.

The Book of the Lost is a darkly atmospheric soundtrack of original unsettling folk horror songs made especially for original folks.
