The bursting of chilled air wakes my senses and reminds me that another year has come to pass. The solstice has arrived and the time of dying time is upon us. What has this year gone by offered me? You? What has come to pass?
Some of the highlights of this past year have been the collection of fiendish family and friends that have, time and again, shown love and care for me and those around me. I am flattered to have such people in my life. Loving, caring, creative and sensitive folks who know that HORROR is best birthed from our fantastic minds. There is enough true horror in the world, each and every day, and the fictional scares and supernaturally cool lives that we can lead are a great distraction for such darkness.
2017 has allowed me to offer musics from my solo works as well as the band. Lords of October are happy to know that you loved the album EQUINOX! Such a great thing to be validated by amazing people. Thank you for the support. We have more videos, gigs and special offerings coming up this next year, too. Just wait! And the next album? Its a killer. A monster. It is something very special that we are stoked to create for you.
Same goes for all music I make. It has taken me a while to complete my current solo album, but that is not because I do not want to. It is because I am trying new textures, styles and sounds. I am inspired, but I am also learning more about production. My previous solo outings have had a poor quality to them, imho. This one is far better and has some nice guest appearances from some shredding masters. It is worth the wait, I say. I am in no hurry, anyways. Lords of October is my main music offering. I PROMISE that before the end of the year, you will hear another brutal tune of terror from the solo album. And it will be heavy!
Wormutanous was my fictional literary offering this year and again, I thank you for so much support. Its been great to be able to write again and travel to worlds unknown. I am near complete on a new book called “The Elder Thing” and will unleash that upon your eyes and fears in the early part of 2018. There are a couple of other literary works I will be offering, too, including an awesome Halloween book for the little ones that I have created with my forever queen, Scarah Stashko. She never ceases to amaze me.
So much more has happened, but my focus is today and in the future.
What I can say is this. If you keep living, I will keep working to scare and entertain you. I will take care of me, you take care of you and together? We might just be able to make it through another year with love intact.
All the beast,
