“The dream was marvelous but the terror was great; we must treasure the dream whatever the terror; for the dream has shown that misery comes at last to the healthy man, the end of his life is sorrow.” – The Epic of Gilgamesh.

The paths travelers take to find their way in this life are as complicated a labyrinth as the mind itself. But forever will a true traveler move onward. Musicians take to backroads and lonely highways as well. It’s the fate of any dreamer, to never truly stand still.
OUTER GODS is a duo, two musicians and travelers who somehow found each other amidst the modern monotony and machinery. The Flail raises musical tones from guitar and keyboards. The Wrathe culls ethereal sound from electronics and synthesizers. Though they had played together in various noise and avant-garde projects around their hometown of Atlanta, they started anew with OUTER GODS in the murky winter of 2011. When they took on their new titles as the Flail and the Wrathe, they also adopted a new philosophy. Over the course of 2012, the band embarked upon the release of two EPs — The Mountain’s Den and Mael Medusa — both of which were self-produced in the seclusion of the band’s private sanctuary over the course of many months.
