Interview with Crossfader Mag:

Interview with The Seventh Hex:


Only the Youngest Grave is dedicated to life, dreams and death.
The disparity of melody and dissonance and how they affect each other.

Overall, the album experiments with drone, ambient, ritual, tribal, jazz, noise, neofolk, post-rock, tape music and vinyl manipulation.

Disc One, Oneiric, is more visceral, alive, feeling.
Disc Two, Lethean, is largely reflective, droning, wandering.


Disc One: Oneiric

I. Oneiric
II. Abject Lust of God
III. First Chant: Waxing, Waning Moon
IV. Aura of Silent Moors and their Chambers
V. Stuttering Sinews
VI. Second Chant: Blood In the Shells
VII. Bodies Falling
VIII. Lanthanesthai

Disc Two: Lethean

I. The Spirit Meets the Skin
II. Final Chant: Stygian Cessation
III. Noose In the Afterglow
IV. Dense Swells In Cold Earth Devour
V. Blood Communion to the Port Saint


Hail the stuttering sinews of God’s inorganic promise.


“Fascinating…An enthralling double album by Melbourne artist Lost Salt Blood purges, mixing elements of ritual ambient, neofolk, tape music, and a bit of jazz.” – The Needle Drop

“I think in anyone’s eyes this album is a triumph, setting the agenda of what music can be and the emotions it can stimulate.” – Echoes and Dust

“Only the Youngest Grave is a stirring, subtle work of breathtaking humanity.” – Crossfader Mag

“A cold, engulfing monolith.” – Sputnik Music

“It’s sad, melancholic, but also has some light at the end. It’s full of textures and atmospheres that transport you to a new world.” – La Fonoscopia

"As much as it implements sounds to try and push me away I can't help but fully embrace it with open arms." - Review Hub
