Limited to 300 and also available digitally. Expected Spring, it will go to press as soon as I have the art sorted. … Continue reading On the horizon
Dragging The Rivers of Sleep is finally available. Fall of Nature released it in December, and I received my copies a few days ago. This record collects 12 tracks of rare and unreleased material from 1999-2015, and was all mastered/remastered by Thomas Garrison in 2016. The idea for this started way back in 2013 I … Continue reading Dragging The Rivers Of Sleep

My wife Nora, who had been living with cancer for 6+ years, passed away 3 weeks ago.
Back in May of this year, James Keeler (Wilt) proposed the idea of a collaboration.

Also included is an unreleased track from … Continue reading Accidental Alchemy: Early Works

In late 2017, they reached out and said they were approaching several projects to collaborate on the material for the hope of an eventual release. I … Continue reading Caulbearer – Diseased Imaginings
