White Horse is the somber vision of musician Ben Chisholm, who is also a full-time member of Chelsea Wolfe. Recording under the name White Horse since 2010, he has released a number of highly praised experimental solo recordings including Final Coordinates (2010). In 2012, Chisholm retired White Horse and adopted the Revelator moniker, under which he released a split 7" with Jacob Bannon's Wear Your Wounds project in 2012. This deluxe box set collects Chisholm's three Revenant Gospels EPs on vinyl for the first time; they were previously available as digital releases in 2010 and 2011. "All vocals performed by those whom are no longer with us." Somewhere between life and death, in a Lynchian in-between, a human face awakens, its eyes misty and feet walking on ground that it still does not recognize. This music is a mix between brutal reality, prosaic lo-fi, and hypnotic moods. The first two volumes of The Revenant Gospels contain songs from dusty records from the early 20th century, directly unloaded from the abyss of oblivion and accompanied by a piano from beyond the grave and strings straight out of horror films. Volume III takes us on a journey through other generations and points on the map, as old field recordings give way to more contemporary voices, though the overall concept and style is the same. Suffocating and mysterious, the music of White Horse still manages to remain melodic and pure, thus magnifying the wonderfully chaotic and sublimating Chisholm's excessive taste for heavy atmospheres tormented by a thin but continuous strand of seraphic light.
