CURSED BREATH thumbnail
CURSED BREATH GE is a labor of love that serves an offering to the peace and beauty that has renewed the artist’s soul from his communion with the flora and fauna that make Appalachia their home. GE is a call to leave the noise of technology and the artificial life of the city to retreat into the peace that only is found when completely embraced by one’s natural habitat.

D. R. Two of the most genuine musicians come together to craft heartfelt music. Green Elder, Paul Ravenwood's (of Twilight Fauna) folk project and Pythagumus Marshall (of novemthree and Cedar Spirits) both very clearly put a lot into this release.

"A sweet, soothing breath of neofolk, with an earnest emphasis on the "folk" and hints of true wilderness seeping through." - Noisey

"Green Elder has its boots firmly planted on new world soil, channeling the history of Ravenwood’s beloved Appalachian home, its remoteness and deceptive quiet. A land of rolling mountains and coal mines, it has a rich tradition of music that reflects both its geography and its inhabitants, a tradition that flows into the present through the gentle, powerful music of Green Elder." -Heathen Harvest

Track Name: Green Elder - Scattering Ashes
Bold is the stream for it winds
Like autumn leaves, in winter you were gone.
The pine sways. The birds sing,
and the stars on the lake cry for the remains.
A summer breeze brings clarity
and the hawk sees all through me.
Track Name: Green Elder - Wood and Stone
Brothers are the wood
Sisters are the stones
We are born on the winds
Yet leave our mark in the dust
The river runs but the stones stay
The snow comes
but the trees will not break
In the depths of the frost
the moss is still green
and the flowers rest
waiting for the spring
And the river runs
And snows come
And spring comes
Too soon for me
Track Name: Green Elder - Winter Spirits
Tears fall quietly like snow in the field
Shadows cast borne by the flame
We gaze into the past, memories breathe
and the wind screams through the trees
The sparrows rise. The moon falls.
The fir breaks from the ice and the snow
Under winter skies, the dawn breaks
above the ridge on the ice and the snow
Under winter skies, the spirits roam
Under winter skies where I belong
