The prime symbol of Red Goddess (Of This Men Shall Know Nothing), is mugwort. A herb associated with dreaming, travel and menstruation, mugwort particularly favors edgelands: those abandoned, untended places, part man-made, part rural, where nature begins to reclaim what humanity has left behind. The music here unfolds a mandala of symbolism from these liminal spaces, drawn from a web of fascinations which unfolded during the recording process.
“Hawthonn is the real deal. Equally adept at transcribing crow calls into musical scales as they are at creating horizon melting atmospheres, Red Goddess raises the bar for musicians interested in composing straight from the creative magination. For fans of Jocelyn Godwin, John Dee and Folk Horror as much as the darker spectrum ofBritish music, this is a record of staggering breadth.” – Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance).
