The Classic Inkubus Sukkubus album Heartbeat of the Earth Has been repressed after more than a decade
This is a long overdue reissue of the Seminal Inkubus Sukkubus album ‘Heartbeat of the Earth’ Originally released in 1995 , Heartbeat of the Earth was the third album released by Inkubus Sukkubus & has been out of print for over 10 years. It was their ‘transition’ album, the album which saw them successfully blend Gothic Rock, Folk and Metal with a big orchestral wall of sound and pagan lyrics to produce what was at the time something truly unique & which predated the fantasy metal genre of the likes of Nightwish, Within Temptation and Evanescence who formed that same year.
Heartbeat of the Earth which was the band’s first release on Resurrection Records was to be the template for the 18 Inkubus Sukkubus albums which have followed it & is a must for all those fans who are missing it from their collections & who don’t want to pay the current asking price for the original pressing on amazon of £394.06*
The power and the passion of the wild pagan world, the beautiful lilting melancholy, the anguish, the torment, the ecstasy and the joy of which the Inkubus Sukkubus Universe is comprised , are all here.
The album is presented here with very slightly updated artwork to the original 1995 first release.

Inkubus Sukkubus’s 20 th CD release sees them returning to their dark folklore roots.
Formed in the summer of 1989 when Candia Ridley (now McKormack), Tony McKormack, and Adam Henderson met at college in Gloucester studying graphic design, the three students discovered they shared an interest in magic, the supernatural and dark alternative music. Over the ensuing years, the band went through numerous line-up changes – always with Candia and Tony at the core – and travelled extensively, touring their distinctive brand of Gothic Pagan folk rock to such far-flung places as Mexico, Russia, Australia, the USA, Scandinavia, Europe, and the length and breadth of the UK.
As Gloucestershire natives – Candia from the Severnside village of Saul, and Tony from Cheltenham – the two have always had a fascination with the folklore of the area, with songs retelling tales of river goddesses, witch persecution and magical landscapes. As well as looking at more general British mythology – shape-shifting, seasonal agricultural celebrations and witch-finding – the new CD Barrow Wake explores some peculiarly Gloucestershire dark tales while giving a nod towards the horror movies of Candia and Tony’s youths, such as The Wicker Man and Blood on Satan’s Claw.
We hear the sorry tale of the Witch of Berkeley, a woman who lived life to the full only to find her hedonistic ways catching up with her in spectacular and demonic style; the mystical, almost hallucinogenic realm of Forest Hill, based on Gloucestershire’s May Hill; and the county’s famously picturesque viewpoint Barrow Wake finds its darker associations explored.
The Rape of Maude Bowen is based on the ‘true’ stories surrounding Maude’s Elm in Cheltenham, dealing with incest, murder and witch persecution; while The Campden Wonder is a similarly fantastic tale with a strange twist, set in the Cotswold town of Chipping Campden in the 17 th century.
