Emit (Hammemit) will appear live for the first time in London on August 4th! The performance will be improvised by Unknown I, who is joined for this event by Antinomian (Subvertio Deus) as second guitarist.
Details are still being finalised, this post will be updated with a venue and other support acts as they are confirmed.
M.M. has made available lyrics to select Emit & Hammemit material including the Todestrieb released Nature Mystic. Also available are lyrics from the split with Vrolok and A Sword of Death for the Prince.
Here are lyrics to two songs from the Mysteries of the Church and Surrounding Environs side of Nature Mystic:
Images only seen in woodcuts are come alive
Breathing frescoes fresh with blood
Deep sounds that resonate from afar
A sermon of centuries ago witnessed in sleep
Old voices speak the words of God
Not so distant anymore…
Beneath the Ancient Dust
Centuries, centuries fell there
The pressing weight of years
Oppression of lifetimes, generations
A cloud of unknowledge obscures
Where men of old dug graves on fresh parchment
Opening mysteries with strokes of the quill
Words wept with joy as the ink dried
Beneath the ancient dust (a promise of Death)
An answer to my prayers
The following Emit releases will be available again soon (before the end of the month)
Vrolok/Emit - Pestilence 1440 / The Divine Eye LP Edition (CD version here)

A regular supporter pointed us to a recent BBC Radio 3 “Early Music” episode which featured a series of songs penned by John Dowland (“Flow My Tears” was prominently featured in the recent Hammemit playlist podcast).
Mark Padmore (tenor) and Elizabeth Kenny (lute) performed in Blythburgh Church, Suffolk at the end of June. Unquiet Thoughts: Melancholic Music of Elizabethan England.
The BBC remove these programs after only a few days so if you are interested visit as soon as possible.
As America celebrates it’s philosophical foundations, Hammemit releases a new full-length with influences and sounds that harken back to Europe a further hundred years, while adapting them into our current culture.
Nature Mystic, out today, consists of two separate ‘sides’:
Nature Mystic – June-November 2008. Storms / Nature’s Beautiful Ugliness / Night’s Alone with the Stars / The Persistent Call
Mysteries of the Church and Surrounding Environs – Late 2006-Middle 2007. How small they must have felt / Dreamstate Hagioscope / Mysteries of the Church . A Memory I Wish I had / Churchyard Tree / Beneath the Ancient Dust
We are finalising the layout with the printers for Hammemit’s next release, Nature Mystic. This CD contains some of the most recent recordings by U.I/Malachi M. Intended originally as a vinyl release, the Side tracklist is preserved along with the gatefold design layout (crafted by Malachi M).
Side A – Nature Mystic was recorded between June and November of 2008.
Side B – Mysteries of the Church and Surrounding Environs was recorded between late 2006 and the middle of 2007.
England’s EMIT announced at the start of this year a name change to formalise it’s new phase. The re-named project will be HAMMEMIT.
The debut Hammemit album will be entitled Spires over the Burial Womb. It was recorded in the middle of 2007 and is the sole product of Unknown Ikon (later Emit recordings have involved several other individuals).
Previously announced Emit releases, including Mother of Blood on Todestrieb Records, do not have a firm date set.
A second Hammemit album is also 50% complete and may see a 2008 release.
