Epidemic Of The Forked Tongue

by Otis



In 2011 we released a split 12" with the band Greyline from Groningen.

We wanted to produce our part of the deal ourselves. First we went to Studio 195 and Martijn recorded his drumtracks there in one afternoon. Then we took the audio home and Walter recorded endless hours of guitars, bass and vocals at Studio West, which was located in the basement of the RBC soccer stadium in Roosendaal. We brought in some guests such as Richard van Gerwen on organ, and his daughter Evie formed the string section with Catherine Cameron.

The entire thing is now remastered by Walter.

Final copies available here:


released September 1, 2011

Drum tracks recorded by Patrick Delabie at Studio 195 in 2010. The rest was recorded and mixed by Walter Poppelaars at Studio West and at home in 2011. Remastered by Walter in 2022.

Originally released on vinyl by Black Death Records in 2011.
Digital reissue by Gram Records in 2022.
