(Debut Release)
Shrinebuilder is the self-titled debut release by the doom supergroup of the same name. Their only studio release before the project fell apart in 2011, it came out on CD and 2LP in October 2009 via Neurot Recordings.


After a great deal of the writing process involving the respective members sending files to each other over a period of time. In January 2009 the full band met together for the first time to set about recording the material they had previously sketched out. Kelly documented the recording sessions via his blog site "We Burn Through The Night". The debut record was recorded in three days, with Crover and Toshi Kasai (Collectively known as The Deaf Nephews) as producers.

In response to the album's release the band would perform a short tour of the United States with tours following the next two years.

An alternate 13-minute version of "Science of Anger" was recorded in Brooklyn, NY in April 2010. This single alternate recording would be issued digitally via Coextinction Recordings.
