Beyond Blood & Ashes - Usual Extreme Metal

Beyond Blood & Ashes - Usual Extreme Metal
My personal catharsis through  music continues, beating out even the existence of this blog.

Another track--the title track--for my up and coming album, Beyond Blood & Ashes, has been completed. This means that I am actually done with six tracks and have only a remaining three to work through. Technically speaking, the album's already complete since I have the primary six tracks that convey the story. I should confess that I like to borrow quite a bit from the black metal underground scene, which includes the recurring themes of eternal serfdom, blasphemy, an uncompromising infatuation with satanic imagery... and a preference for six-track albums. However, with the additional tracks on my mind, I am inclined to include them with the album as they can provide a sub-plot to the main story. These additional tracks will get done when they get done, although given the creative flow, chances seem high for these sonic abominations to appear on the final release of the concept album.

In the meantime, I'm also nearly ready to release a limited-run demo titled 'Decade of Torment'. This will contain some of the tracks to appear on the concept album, along with a number of 'work in progress' heavy instrumentals that are a mix of low-fi and some better quality material. The point of this demo is to present a chronicle of sorts of my creative trajectory, experiments, and even struggles with the writing process as over the years, I have ended up with a lot of incomplete raw material that could be enough to fuel around two extreme metal albums. Decade of Torment should be available around August 2014.

I'll also take this opportunity to remember the silent partners and individuals who offered their creative efforts and guidance. Individuals who have disappeared from the grid and become estranged over the many years, but individuals who I still hold in very high regard. On the surface, I am a lone wolf in these endeavours, but I've always had excellent support.
