❉ Atmospheric music inspired by writer Arthur Machen and occultist A.E. Waite.
The Brothers of the Sodality are known generally as the People of the Shadow and their Sisters who are latent in the secret bosom of the Order are the Daughters of Night…
Phantom Cities is a new album of noir soundscapes with echoes ranging from Labradford to Duane Eddy.
Join The Sodality of the Shadows as they walk in Black Raven Alley, visit the Strange Houses of Sleep, hear the Tales of the Assassins, and stray in terrain where the Other Stations are encountered.
The Sodality of the Shadows was originally formed by Arthur Machen and A.E. Waite at the beginning of the twentieth century in London, and it lasted until at least 1910. The Sodality of Shadows was the ‘unorthodox little club’ referred to by St John Adcock in The Glory that was Grub Street.
Taking their name from Machen and Waite’s mysterious secret society, the present incarnation of The Sodality of the Shadows brings together a group of musicians, artists and writers exploring a rich world of myths and symbols.
