Crionic Mind Records


Crionic Mind started in 1995 as a label for my own music with the intention to grow it into a label that focused on under appreciated projects that were doing something special.

Just as the label was hitting its stride in 2002 a rats nest of personal and financial setbacks converged, preventing me from releasing CM012. This was to be a double CD compilation called “Those Of The Long Shadows.” The release was finished. The art was done, music mastered, it was at the pressing plant and scheduled for a October 2002 release. It  was not to be.

During the time that I was unable to focus on the label I came to realize I didn’t really miss it.  I realized if and when I was in a position to revive the label I wasn’t sure I would want to.

I am proud of each of the records Crionic Mind released, they were good experiences with good people. The feedback on the releases and label was better than I could have hoped. It managed to have an identity that was its own. Based on the music, the aesthetics, you had a pretty good idea where Crionic Mind was coming from.

For those that supported it and became comrades along the way, thanks very much. There are a few titles that are still available and a few that aren’t. I hesitate to pronounce the label dead, but I don’t foresee a time when I will return to releasing CD’s.
