"Society of the Silver Cross showed itself as a fresh face in gothic music, through its more organic approach to the genre, makes them one of the most promising acts within dark music." - Filter
Society of the Silver Cross is led by husband and wife duo Joe Reineke and Karyn Gold-Reineke of Seattle’s famed recording studio Orbit Audio. Joe and Karyn draw inspiration from their many trips to India, it’s rich musical textures, traditional chanting and spiritual wisdom.
The core instruments are 12-string acoustic guitar, harmonium, rare and esoteric synthesizers, B3 organ, mellotron, and shahi baaja (Indian autoharp). The result is an other worldly blend of east and west mixed in a lush state of musical bliss that veers into darker, more cinematic moods. Epic, playful and authentic with unpredictable layers of both male and female vocals, chanty drones, pounding rhythms, beautiful textural landscapes and cosmic atmospheres.
