My friend Shane Gillis has just released a fantastic collection of atmospheric synth rock called Portal. If you’re into cinematic synth-ness, peppered with driving rhythms and tasty guitar leads, then you should definitely give this a cranked-up listen. You can stream with the player below and snag a digital download right from Shane’s Bandcamp page. Dig it!
Clawing continues to dig its way into reality…
Dead Dream City, my split CD with TN’s Degtras is available now from Wood & Stone Productions. The disc features 2 longform tracks of darkest drone and deep, pummeling synthesis to rattle your brain. Degtras’ Road To The Dark City puts you on the bleak highway, and my Thomas Ligotti-inspired Nethescurial heralds your arrival in the dead city.
You can order the limited run CDs direct from Wood & Stone, or contact me here to get the right from me. If you’d like a copy, definitely hit one of us up, as they are just about sold out. Digital downloads and streaming are available on Bandcamp.
2 cassettes and a split with Offerbeest are on the horizon from my noise/drone/spoken word group Clawing (Austin Gaines, Matt Finney, Christopher Davis, et al) as well. More info on that as it all comes together.
I also have two new songs on the game soundtrack/gamplay radio station for the horror boardgame magazine Freakface!!! My tracks are Skeletal Reflection 1 & 2 and are presented under the name Joyless Noise.
Thanks for listening!
Preorders are up now for my upcoming split CD with TN’s Degtras. It’s called Dead Dream City, and features two lengthy tracks of deep drone and dark synthesis from each of us, as well as fantastic thematic artwork by Austin Gaines. The CD will be released on December 21 by the fine folks at Wood & Stone Productions. Copies are extremely limited, so preorder now to set out on the road to the dark city Nethescurial (thank you, Thomas Ligotti!) and get lost there with us.
Seems like not has been happening musically this year, but I’ve finally done an update to my website and the newest gowith recording (Universal Field Recording 1) that’s been out for a while is up there.
I’ve been working in the shadows on many other things.
We’ve got a new batch of Witchchord songs ready to go for a second release. Just have to get things together to record all the new stuff. Very guitar-heavy this time, which is awesome because Shane is such an incredible guitarist.
Finished work on a new project called Clawing that is a creepy ambient doom drone concept called Spectral Estates. Currently mixing it right now. Austin Gaines from Calques and Japanese Women and Matt Finney from How We Lived and It Only Gets Worse are involved, and their work is incredible. Should have some sounds up soon, and hopefully a cassette release.
