"As to Preterite - they are as mysterious as their sounds, a collaborative duo that on one side is found sat Genevieve Beaulieu of Menace Ruine fame whilst the other finds James Hamilton one time Column, Annihilist these days Nebris. Across the five cuts that form their debut release Pillar of Winds they weave a darkly intoxicating spell charm that one minute veers from the pre post rock discordance of the late '80s New Zealand scene a la Bruce Russell and Roy Montgomery as though re-visualised and relocated to the depths of Tibet as on 'Synagogue' to 'Triall of Strength' which to these oddly tuned ears sounds not unlike This Mortal Coil as seen through the viewfinder of Soriah with additional sonic assistance provided for by a youthful Flying Saucer Attack. All said though nothing quite touches the parting 'Viriditas' which ought by rights to have those Rise Above imprint and Current 93 admirers among you chomping soundly at the bit for through the fracturing soft psyche folk haze emerges something indelibly ingrained in a centuries old mysticism to sonically dissect succulently an aural axis upon which sits Baez, Mellow Candle and Comus. Quite perfect if you ask me." --Mark Barton
