Included in this update is a small restock of our Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab collection, including our two Hair Glosses, made by Black Phoenix Trading Post. By popular request, we now offer sample sized sets of our fragrances of our original Haute Macabre collection and our Cemetery Collection.

The new Haute Macabre bags are an oversized cotton canvas tote, sized at 20 inches wide by 15 inches high, with a 5 inch strap. Large and sturdy enough to fit all of your books, crystal balls, and more. The new tank tops are a soft and loose fitting cropped tank, both designed by Courtney Riot, and printed locally in New Orleans by Inferno Screen Printing.

Haute Macabre It Wasn't Just a Phase bab

Please be aware that although these are not limited edition items, we do have only a small quantity currently on hand. Our next Black Phoenix restock will be in the early fall, shortly followed by our annual holiday pre-order. We will be doing our best to keep the shirts and bags on hand throughout the summer.

Portals Of Power: KillDie’s Crystal Marys

by on Jun.20, 2017, under Syndicated from the Web

Reposted from | Go to Original Post

KillDie Crystal Mary 1

If there’s anything my hallowed altar has been missing (first step, Sarah–make an altar) but if there WERE anything lacking, I can tell you right now that it’s a hollowed out blessed Virgin Mary that’s been filled with filled with delicate, rosy-hued crystals, exuding gentle energies of compassion and peace and shimmering with grace and sacred intention.

What kind of person, you might wonder, would shatter the holy virgin’s face and stuff it full of quartz? Well, that would Kyle Montgomery of KillDie.

KillDie Crystal Mary 2

“…she becomes my ultimate goddess of power and guidance vibrating at a whole new frequency,”

KillDie Crystal Mary 3

Kyle sees the this particular icon, the Virgin Mary, as a symbol of mother earth, a guide towards the future and enlightenment.  Once combined with the crystals, he shares, “…she becomes my ultimate goddess of power and guidance vibrating at a whole new frequency,” and further notes enigmatically, that while each crystal is hand picked and placed individually with intention, he would prefer that people not be privy to the full process, as he believes it will affect “what the viewer needs to see and gain from the art work.”

KillDie Collage

KillDie Taxidermy

Beyond his work with earthy, organic work with crystals and statuary, Kyle also creates collage pieces with trippy, extra-terrestrial motifs–but both, he notes, evoke  feelings of unknown powers, blind faith and a high consciousness.

Portals, power, magic–these concepts are the very essence of Kyle’s work, yes, even the taxidermy pieces consisting of sweet, sleepy looking creatures, wounds packed with more crystals. “The death of any animal transcends them back to mother earth”, he expresses, and in crystallizing them, he intends to provoke questions in the viewer. In fact, Kyle traces the pursuit of all of these themes back to life’s ultimate questions, why are we here? and what is next? As to the journey that these these questions have led him on, he simply states:

“I am here now in the moment creating art and still searching for answers.”

KillDie Crystal Mary 4

KillDie Crystal Mary 5

Some of Kyle Montgomery’s Crystal Marys can be viewed at Montreal’s C.O.A Galerie Anti + Reflet Group Exhibition on June 22nd, and he notes, there are a few other shows which are yet to be publicly announced. Be certain to follow @killdie on instagram for updates on these upcoming events, as well as for crystalline glimpses of more mystical Marys and other new works.

BloodMilk Darkling I Listen part II

Within this collection is the introduction of Victorian inspired mourning beads, hand strung and knotted with a ritualistic intention and focus of protection to the wearer. Each strand will be of a limited quantity, however they shall be released on a monthly basis, with new additions to designs forthcoming.

Darkling I listen; and, for many a time
I have been half in love with easeful Death,
Call’d him soft names in many a mused rhyme,
To take into the air my quiet breath;
Now more than ever seems it rich to die,
To cease upon the midnight with no pain,
While thou art pouring forth thy soul abroad
In such an ecstasy!
Still wouldst thou sing, and I have ears in vain—
To thy high requiem become a sod.

16 Psyche

Chelsea Wolfe Hiss Spun, image by Bill Crisafi

Haute Macabre Patron Saint of Sound Chelsea Wolfe released a preview of her forthcoming album, “Hiss Spun”, this morning with the electrifying “16 Psyche”.

//www.youtube.com/watch?v=OexeAtxr24E

Named for one of the largest asteroids in the asteroid belt, “16 Psyche” starts with a melodic drone guitar, easing its way into Wolfe’s hypnotic vocals, reminiscent of the early albums of PJ Harvey. The song breaks into a powerhouse of sound, cresting on the vocals “She said, I’d save you, but I can’t”.

The full length album is out September 22 from Sargent House, and is available for pre-order now, with cover photography from Bill Crisafi. Tour dates listed at ChelseaWolfe.net
