It's been over a month....
...and I still don't have my shit together. I know, I know... Just take it easy. I didn't forget, I just got busy chasing dollars to pay rent and working on some other stuff.
"What other stuff?" your probably thinking. Well I'll tell ya.
1.) DEVIL 7" details. (it should be out the end of August)
2.) GEHENNA "This World Is A Shit Hole" 10" layouts and printing details. (Trust me, even though you may never get one, your gonna always want one. Limited to just 9 copies this soon to be a legendary piece of vinyl should be out by mid July. Start to save your money right now cause they're not gonna come cheap.)
3.) My Grandmothers death. (I wasn't really working on this one, it just sort of happened and took up a bit of time.)
4.) New GEHENNA shirt designs. (These are gonna be great. One will be exclusive through A389 Records and one through the great folks at ICON SCREEN PRINTING.)
5.) A special mail order edition of the GEHENNA - Lands Of Sodom 7". (this is gonna be done by mid July also).
6.) A post that was gonna knock the socks off of some folks.
So this is what I've got for you.
SUN OF THE SLEEPLESS - "Poems To The Wretches Hearts" MCD. This bad motherfucker came out in 99. I liked it a lot when I got it, but it wasn't until later that I really grew to know how much I had in common with this band.
In 2004 I lived at Murder Corner in the city of Orange. I used to lock my self in my room and snort massive rails of coke (we're talking shit the size of hightop sneaker laces) and try to use these songs to fly into another dimension. I would turn this up on my stereo, and I'd play my guitar or bass and hope Satan would use his power and force to control my hand and make the music I was playing and hearing open a portal. A magical passage to a distant place where the winds would drive the cocaine blizzards relentlessly, keeping me high for eons. Where the only light came from a flame climbing towards the end of a cigarette, and the glow of the front of a stereo. A place where the sounds of depressive, cruel, and suicidal minor chords bled into moans and screams of torture, hate, and misery. A place known to SUN OF THE SLEEPLESS as Germany.
Shortly after this CD they released a 7" called "1000 Kalte Winter". It had an all white cover with white printing, and white embossed letters. I think that Germany in 1999 and the city of Orange in 2004 were a lot a like.
Download this and get your guitar and the devil's dandruff ready to open your own gateways.
