Digital Rituals


The Songs of Baron Samedi is now haunting the digital realm through all your favourite and probably hated digital retailers and is also now available direct through our BANDCAMP along with the rest of the discography...well....that you know of.

The vinyl version is still available from all over the place...just google it...including directly from CONQUEST OF NOISE.

And the tape version is also still available from all over the place...once again googling should divulge your nearest supplier...and you can get it direct from the source: SOFT ABUSE.

The One True Scrapes is stirring once again to record new music....
