Markus Wolff - Walpurgisnacht Print Release

John Goff is working with a new artist Markus Wolff - on his release of Walpurgisnacht Print next week.

Wolff’s art focuses on the pagan mythology of his native Germanic lands, bringing to focus folklore often touched upon by heavy metal bands, but with a sophisticated/educated eye. Wolff has been studying the art and ideas of Germanic folk art ever since the inception of his band Crash Worship, touching upon these ideas throughout Crash Worship's graphics and album artwork. Once leaving the band, Wolff brought this artwork to the forefront, utilizing pagan mythology in all his endeavors, from the artwork and graphic design with the band Neurosis, to all of his own musical projects and commissions. Mr. Wolff has been kind enough to work with Serigraphic Systems with the release of “Walpurgisnacht” or "Witch's eve." According to Germanic folklore dating back to the Middle Ages, during the night of "Walpurgisnacht (April 30th; 6 months from "All Hallow's Eve"), witches fly to the mountain tops to congregate with demons and devils. It is believed that psychedelic plants were a cause of these visions.

This print is a 23" x 17" lithographic reproduction and is limited to 100 copies.

Available May 30th at noon. Print can be purchased here.
