Emil Amos, world renowned as drummer of the illustrious experimental rock groups Om (Sub Pop, Drag City) and Grails, has had an increasingly prolific, though relatively unknown, solo career under the moniker Holy Sons. Home-recording over 1000 songs since the project's inception in 1992, 'Decline Of The West' represents a vital intersection of style and method in Amos' songwriting and production that he has been honing for the last 15 years. Holy Sons' minimalist avant folk sound journeys through formats as varied as dub, church hymn, slow jam and tape collage, all performed with an inspired punk spirit. Recorded at Amos' home studio in late night recording sessions that stretched over three years, during which he played every instrument and then mixed and remixed each track, 'Decline...' is his most stylistically varied effort to date. For the first time Volumes I and II are available on vinyl. This reissue includes seven previously unreleased tracks from the original 'Decline Of The West' sessions. Double LP features new artwork, deluxe gatefold packaging and digital download card. Includes covers of tracks by Circle Jerks, Sebadoh, Joe South, Randy California and Daniel Johnston.
