Lupercalia was celebrated for centuries in the middle of February and eventually, as the Roman Empire became less pagan and more Christian, was transformed into a celebration honoring St. Valentine. . .
From Feb. 13 to 15, the Romans celebrated the feast of #Lupercalia. The men sacrificed a goat and a dog, then whipped women with the hides of the animals they had just slain. Absolutely no slaying of animals for this holiday in the studio.
Goddamn this album really hits the spot right now - epic atmospheric nature-themed black/folk metal. Bought this cassette right away and the split/collaboration with Downfall of Nur is equally as impressive. I wish I would have heard about this in 2015 when it was first released #blackmetal#atmosphericblackmetal#selvans#lupercalia
