The prime symbol of Red Goddess (Of This Men Shall
Know Nothing), is mugwort. A herb associated with
dreaming, travel and menstruation, mugwort particularly
favors edgelands: those abandoned, untended places, part
man-made, part rural, where nature begins to reclaim what
humanity has left behind. The music here unfolds a mandala
of symbolism from these liminal spaces, drawn from a
web of fascinations which unfolded during the recording
process.

"Hawthonn is the real deal. Equally adept at transcribing crow calls
into musical scales as they are at creating horizon melting
atmospheres, Red Goddess raises the bar for musicians interested in
composing straight from the creative imagination. For fans of Jocelyn
Godwin, John Dee and Folk Horror as much as the darker spectrum of
British music, this is a record of staggering breadth." – Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance)

"Hawthonn's rigorous approach to researching their subject matter and the depth of emotional heft in the music makes this a deeply compelling record." - Luke Turner, The Quietus

"... an unusual and sometimes challenging structure and arc, as pieces range from 3 minutes to 15 minutes and alternately resemble an ancient pagan ceremony; a seance, a vivid nightmare, or a funereal dirge [...] At their best, Hawthonn sound like temporally dislocated druids recording cryptic hymnals to the earth's less traveled places." - Anthony D'Amico, Brainwashed
