To date, LoC has released one album: ‘Lurker of Chalice’, which was released first by Total Holocaust in 2005 limited to 1000 copies on CD only.

They also released a 2xLP of the album which contained the bonus track, ‘Wail’, which was limited to the vinyl release only; a 2008 CD reissue also included “Wail,” though it was sequenced differently.
