NotesSticker with this information:
Re-issue with bonus track of this now classic release from Lurker Of Chalice which is the unholy spawn of Wrest aka Leviathan.
Not to be confused with Lurker Of Chalice
Reissue of Lurker Of Chalice, but not a limited edition. Contrary to the information given by Southern Lord, the unlisted bonus track is not the track "Wail," previously found on Lurker Of Chalice, but the track "The Glory Experiment," previously found on the 2002 demo.
Tracklist on release lists only 9 tracks: "Granite" is listed as VII., "Vortex Chalice" as VIII. and "Fastened To The Five Points" as IX. But because of the bonus track being track VII. without being mentioned in the tracklist, "Granite" is actually track VIII. and so on.
Track I. has no title; only a drawing of a pitchfork.
No credits of any kind given.

The person behind Lurker of Chalice is Wrest who is also Leviathan and part of the the "all-star" USBM band, Twilight. Wrest was a drummer with the instrumental rock band, Gift Horse, before his foray into black metal.
According to a 2004 interview with Wrest, there are four unreleased full-length Lurker of Chalice albums. Complete discography.
Lurker of Chalice is one of the few depressive-oriented black metal bands that truly lives up to its title. True to what American Psycho's Patrick Bateman said, there is no catharsis. There is no greater understanding, no release from suffering. It is certainly extreme, but not in the usual sense we think of with regards to metal. Wrest's flagship work with Leviathan always teetered on the edge of complete despair. The problem with the album though is that it could have been much better from the point of view of atmosphere. You don't have to listen to this kind of albums twice to get grasped by them. This is an Experience album.

So, Lurker Of Chalice’s self-titled album Lurker Of Chalice is a kind of controlled train wreck musically. It, in theory, is an attempt at making a dark, ambient metal side project. In practice, it achieves that feeling for a decent portion of the album and sounds pretty good, but at other points it really throws the listener off with awkward passages, riffs, or noises. What Lurker Of Chalice is getting at with this album is like half Black Metal and half Ambient. During most of the album, the heaviness is virtually nonexistent, but it shines through at some points to make it a little bit heavier, but more often then not these heavier parts drag on for a very long time without changing riffs, almost ruining some of the songs on here. However, when the heaviness ceases and Wrest begins to experiment some more, things get more interesting.

Long out of print since its initial debut in 2005, Lurker Of Chalice is less the result of a Jef ‘Wrest’ Whitehead/Leviathan side-project and more of a vessel to channel the darkness found within. It’s one of the more strictly BM tracks on an album that favours ambient structures over blastbeats. Metal Hammer Newsletter.
