THE GOSPELS OF THE GASH - 07.01.10

I'd hoped to get several orders shipped on wednesday, but between unbelievably intense hot weather in the early part of the week and the effort i've put into finishing up the audio and layout for the new THEOLOGIAN album by the end of june, i had to let a lot of shit slip by me this week. i will absolutely get back on it next week. i picked up the INSWARM shirts today, and the audio has been completed for a little under a week now, so those will most likely start shipping next week, along with the last remaining few WILT preorders. in spite of this week's hiccup, things are still moving ahead.
i received a few emails about missing orders and a couple of incorrect items that got shipped. this is most likely due to the transitional into working with an assistant who's unfamiliar with my (lack of a) system. the kinks will be ironed out...

Now, for the real news:



THEOLOGIAN. THE FURTHER I GET FROM YOUR STAR, THE LESS LIGHT I FEEL ON MY FACE CD (CRUCIAL BLAST)
The audio and layout are completed and have been turned in to Adam at CRUCIAL BLAST. the tracks are being mastered by the amazing Jérôme Nougaillon of HERMETIQUE and PROPERGOL, and i anticipate that he will make them sound incredible.
there will be a special edition of the album, including a shirt, poster and pins. CRUCIAL BLAST will also release the debut ep, CHARTING THE SCHISM as a digital download in conjunction with this album.
i sent the unmastered mp3s to a few people to preview, among them was Mories of GNAW THEIR TONGUES and ADERLATING, and this is what he had to say:
"Absolute dark tunnel music, like being slowly sucked into a black hole leading to hell...brooding dark stuff man."
i can't ask for a better description than that, especially from someone so well-versed in making music that sounds like it was recorded in the pit of tartarus. by the way, congratulations are in order for GNAW THEIR TONGUES, whose next album will be released by CANDLELIGHT RECORDS!

Earlier this week, Mories sent me the artwork for the ADERLATING shirt to be included in the previously announced THEOLOGIAN+ADERLATING preorder package, forthcoming in the near future.


YOU REALLY SHOULD BUY THIS:
THEOLOGIAN+BLACK SUN+INSWARM+REQUIEM. CODE LEECH-PREORDER PACKAGE
Black-on-black tshirt featuring the SWANS-inspired logo of cunted Glaswegian doom butchers BLACK SUN. Includes a 60 minute cassette containing multiple versions of the track CRAWLING LIKE A LEECH, from their CODE BLACK ep (appearing on the split 7inch with THEY ARE COWARDS), raped and reinterpreted by THEOLOGIAN, brooklyn-based industrial doomers INSWARM and pennsylvanian black ambient mystic REQUIEM. Also features a cover/remix version of the BLACK SUN track HAMMER by THEOLOGIAN.
