Veil of Thorns - Eschaton & Celebration (2014) [Full Album] Jan. 14th, 2015 @ 11:13 am


Eschaton (Noun) - From Ancient Greek ἔσχατον
(eskhaton), neuter singular of ἔσχατος (eskhatos, “last”).
(New Testament) day at the end of time following
Armageddon when God will decree the fates of all
individual humans according to the good and evil of their
earthly lives. (literally) the last; used in theology to refer
to the world's state during the posthistoric era of God's
overt (apocalyptic) reign, immediately preceding the end
of the world.

Celebration (Noun) - The formal performance of a solemn
rite, such as Christian sacrament - The observance of a
holiday or feast day, as by solemnities - The act, process of
showing appreciation, gratitude and/or remembrance,
notably as a social event.- A social gathering for
entertainment and fun; a party.


Saith the propaganda copy:

After completing a tour of the US and Europe with
Jarboe, head necrofuturist of Veil of Thorns, P. Emerson
Williams gathered impressions, thoughts and notes written
down along the way to bring the whole into the twisted
form of Eschaton & Celebration.

Veil of Thorns are known for covering much ground
sonically and conceptually. There is the punk-noir and
lyrical meditations on being an outsider and lubrication of
the wheels of empire on Vampire Wars. There is the
musical hall of mirrors and dispatches from the charred
fields of the apocalypsis of the act of artistic creation found
on the twin albums Necrofuturist and Salon Apocalypse.

Eschaton & Celebration opens up to an experience of the
final stage of apocalypse. This is a journey into the heart of
chaos that indeed does celebrate the end of everything
familiar in cultural, spiritual and physical reality itself.

Choronzon - FIAT NOX (2011) [Full Album] Aug. 1st, 2014 @ 07:25 am


CHORONZON – FIAT NOX
PANICMACHINE 2011.


Don't look too close. In end you'll believe. A king in Yellow, neurotransmitters extend through quantum states, a POMO economy and culture renders all attemps at understanding and manipulation futile. CHORONZON has found you.

Over the years Choronzon have become known for their thick vortex of blackened ritualistic industrial chaos. P. Emerson Williams has shaped this release the way a sculptor creates art by removing any unneeded element. With FIAT NOX CHORONZON have scaled back the electronics and loops on to where guitars and vocals carry the pieces, except where cellos take over on one piece. Very stripped down, no fx on the guitars. The results are no less of a demonic vortex for this sharpening of focus.

Lyrically, the album centers around pivotal moments. The moment when an empire is in a free-fall, the point of evocation when the entity is undoubtedly and fearsomely manifest, when one is on the path and there can be no going back. In the Abyss there is no time, nor space. The only way out is through and the only way to emerge is to leave yourself there. The biggest crimes are committed with the help of armies and authorities, so freedom has to be declared by the night.

Messenger Of Night

The flesh between my teeth
Slid from my initial probing bite
Like the sensual slithering of a raw oyster

The messenger of night

In this place with no moon or sun,
No time of day or season,
The light of morning seeps in
By common consensus

I see, I heard
I see, I heard

The messenger of night

Inner Moonlight
Where the casting was of the night
On my name, hubris, persuasion
Clouded that summit
The majestic filth which ill eclipses miracle
Oh, we will always have the spark
On which the shadows scream
Inner moonlight
Unseeing, dark illusion led
Flitting, never a sin, in knowledge
Art in exploitation
Inner moonlight
Holy, sad story, august and light
And we shared in the promise
A wintertime deceased
Inner moonlight
Decedent's stark fall
Gutters contorted
Waste moon
Aspect of my sown subconscious
Two wounds that are fire to heat
Angel limbo scripted
Devising most to resurrect it
Slithers out with profusion
From Nameless thought
Inner moonlight
Unseeing, dark illusion led
Flitting, never a sin, in knowledge
Art in exploitation
Inner moonlight
Holy, sad story, august and light
And we shared in the promise
A wintertime deceased
Inner moonlight
Inner moonlight
Unseeing, dark illusion led
Flitting, never a sin, in knowledge
Art in exploitation
Inner moonlight
Holy, sad story, august and light
And we shared in the promise
A wintertime deceased
Inner moonlight
The stories of tensions
Absconds with public amusement
To meet some mad thing's eyes
Inner Moonlight
Scattered written torture you made reality
We mask the fascination too poor
Inner moonlight

» CHORONZON - ///Consummation//\\Metanoia\\\ Is Available From PANICMACHINE
CHORONZON - ///Consummation//\\Metanoia\\\ Is Available From PANICMACHINE

With the cancellation of the Nachtmystium/Jarboe tour I did what I do in most situations, I took the great musical energy generated from learning and playing the amazing Jarboe, SWANS, World Of Skin tracks we were to perform and write new music. I recruited my good friend BALEYYG, who directed me through the material of the live set and long time collaborator and valued brother in art Ferenc Teglas to add their creative genius and gave them a week to do it.

This album is the result and it's one hell of a dense and dark experience to rise from such a spontaneous burst of energy and creativity. I thank my brothers of dark art for blasting open the gateways between worlds on these songs.

The coming year will bring at least two East/West Choronzon releases, the first being Escape From Nullworld and then a Choronzon East/West revisiting of MKCCCXXXIII, an earlier version of which about twenty thousand of you grabbed from Megaupload before they got shut down.

11/05/2012 - As they round out the twenty-sixth year mark in their career, experimental Industrial Blackmetal act CHORONZON continue to build on an ever expanding palette with their most varied, unusual and harrowing release to date.

Just in time for the apocalypse and completed as a major storm makes landfall on the US East Coast comes a new album from the chaotes of Choronzon. The Consummation of metanoia is the pain of the psyche growing into new states of being. The Consummation of metanoia is the overwhelming transcendence even of healing to a transformation beyond the human to the essence of being human. A joyful opening to psychosis as means of preparation for easier adaptation. An embrace of fragility as a way to feel the full force of one's strength.

With ///Consummation//\\Metanoia\\\ Choronzon completes a creative and narrative arc that began with Ziggurat Of Dead Shibboleths. The code of esoteric insight broken, freedom declared under cover of night and now the mind is transformed and chakreas are open. This album is the Veil of Maya lifting as the inner being is revealed after many lifetime's of journey through war and illusion.

Choronzon are opening up to yet another set of unexplored worlds on this, featuring electric standup bass, keys and percussion from Ferenc Teglas and the multiversal soundscapes of BALEYYG. "We gathered through astral projection to a pre-determined catacomb to generate the sounds by spectral means." Says Choronzon chaote P. Emerson Williams on the process of creating ///Consummation//\\Metanoia\\\. "Between the three of us we really tapped into multiple streams." declares Ferenc Teglas. "I got to experience the 333 current as a whispering voice in the distance. This is a very unique album." Says BALEYYG.

///Consummation//\\Metanoia\\\ is released by PANICMACHINE and will be available from iTunes and other major digital retailers in December. Look for a book that completes and sums up the trilogy to come later this month along with a DVD version of ///Consummation//\\Metanoia\\\.

» Art Ov Musick - Les Vampires, XENARCH




While we continue furiously scan and catalogue the massive amount of art we're offering this month, the music is still coming. We will be making the music from P. Emerson Williams' score of all ten episodes of the classic French silent film serial Les Vampires available from PANICMACHINE Digital Music, and each digital album will include mp4 files of the (roughly) corresponding episodes.




Les Vampires is a film serial that gave us so much of the aesthetic for iconic gothic imagery its influence can not be overstated. Not a single vampire in sight, but enough mystery, twists and wickedness to fill twenty vampire novels.
There are 10 episodes, averaging around 40 minutes each, totalling about 6 and a half hours, but much more than ten hours of music was created for this version.
The fact that this series was shot in post WWI Paris has me pondering the urge to create, even in the midst of turmoil and chaos. the Killer Ring offered me a lot in the way of visual inspiration and coaxed sounds from me that I hadn't anticipated.
-P. Emerson Williams


The first two episodes are combined into one collection because together they are about the length of an album and the sounds of the two flow together quite well. We'll be bringing P. Emerson Williams solo compositional excursions to iTunes etc. as we proceed as well. It's just a matter of reaching that section of our ever growing list...

XENARCH - Devourers Of The Living

In other news, XENARCH have emerged from their blasphemous cloister to give us a look at the cover of their upcoming EP and they sent us rough mixes of the first two trax as well and we can only say we are blown away. This EP may even see the dark of night this month.

VEIL OF THORNS - The Seven Black Blood Texts

The third single from what is part of the larger project that has to do with some stuff with some graveyard footage, actors, poetry, fiction art and more...

The dreaded Seven Black Blood Texts ov thee GOTHRONOMICON have been translated and the knowledge hid therein is changing each one of us from the quantum level on outward... The Gothrapocrypha hath been located and the barbaric names so foolishly writ in that tome called out. That gibbering in the dark may be our own transformed selves...

» VEIL OF THORNS - Diamond Dust Blowback
The second single from what is part of the larger project that has to do with some stuff with some graveyard footage, actors, poetry, fiction art and more...

VEIL OF THORNS - Diamond Dust Blowback Cover

The dreaded GOTHRONOMICON has been brought to us and is being translated by mute scribes and the content held therein tested by fearless and skilled mages, though a few have been lost between space... We have a tip on where to find the Gothrapocrypha and some info on what it will take to obtain it. We hope to get this process on film.

The plan with these singles is to release one or two songs at a time, with a lot of extras. This is part of the process of creating the next album. Those who collect the singles are helping fund operations. More than that, with the singles is a ton of exclusive material, including art, short stories, and videos, to mention a few. The more we can bring in, the more ambitious we can get with packaging, collaborative partners and more. The more you buy, share, stream on Spotify or wherever you like to get your music, play on your radio shows, podcasts and spin in clubs, the better what we create will be. If you do play our music on your show, podcast etc. let us know so we can spread your links around.

Keep an eye on this space and on PANICMACHINE, for much is in store and updates should be coming early and often.

» VEIL OF THORNS - The Girl Without A Face
The first of a number of specially priced EP's is here and available on PANICMACHINE!! We had some great contribution to the remixes and I'm extremely proud of this lineup with is me (P. Emerson Williams), Ferenc Teglas and Aidan McGoran. More details are in the pdf booklet that comes with the download. At a mere two dolluh 't'is a bahgain! Below are the words and images from the label and you can stream or buy this EP right here.


It's here, the first new music from Veil of Thorns in quite some time. The first of several planned "singles" from the band. (Six trax spanning 38 minutes can be considered a single by today's malleable standards. And at $2, you get a lot.) to the band's official pronouncement The Girl Without A Face is: A story ripped from thee pages ov thee dreaded GOTHRONOMICON!

And previews of material and contracts connected with this project is not on paper, but on something which seems to react to the touch, like it's alive and reading our souls as we handle it...
The Girl Without A Face Includes remixes by Veil of Thorns members P. Emerson Williams and Ferenc Teglas and other gems were wrought by a few elusive and mysterious artists. Like the Bath Salts Mix - from Grave Knave - soundz kinda like codeine, actually. Maybe this is the comedown... Veil of Thorns give Big Thanx to Grave Knave for the rough treatment. Hive Mind Drones bring the sound of at the minimum mass hysteria to their mix, of not something more harrowing and sinister. On the final Drone Mix, Solar Sound System got abrasively meditative on the track...

A whole lotta art is going to be created as part of the upcoming Veil of Thorns release(s). Dissemination shall happen through digital, print and sale of originals. Something very strange is developing in the form the lyrical/prose aspect and odd goings on have been spotted on Emerson's estate...

» September Art Sale At PANICMACHINE
From PANICMACHINE: As we head out of summer and we look back over our first months of existence, we want to bring on another deal that links to some of what we have planned. For as long as we have pieces on hand, we will be offering P. Emerson Williams original art for the price of prints, and in some cases, even well below that.What we are doing is funding an endeavour of major proportions. We can't hint at the nature of this, but it is a massive undertaking and for this we are offering original art at a price anyone can afford. There are several releases slated for this month as well, but we are going to try to keep a pace of posting at least twelve art pieces a day until everything is sold. We have everything from small impromptu ink and pencil drawings from the early 1990's up to this last week, watercolours, and oil paint and acrylic canvases of varying sizes from 10"x12" to acrylic on 90"x120" heavy acid free paper.

When you add two or more pieces to your collection we will be throwing in all kinds of extras. And we have many extras to add. So here, to get things rolling is a drawing from twenty years ago. Just be fore the art of P. Emerson Williams was to start showing up in hundreds of goth, metal and occult 'zines across the world. The full development of his signature work of the 1990's was yet to come, but you can see that is was well along in its development.

» Necrofuturist Transmission #40 - Calling All Reactive Agents

» The Hands of Orlac (1924) P. Emerson Williams Score


Directed by the great Robert Wiene (Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari).

A concert pianist, Paul Orlac (Conrad Veidt), loses his hands in a railway accident. Replacement hands are transplanted onto him in an experimental procedure, but the hands are those of a recently-executed murderer. From that point forward, the pianist is tortured by panic attacks and irrational fears. He believes that with the hands of the murderer he has also gained the murderer's predisposition to killing. Strange signs and bizarre threatening letters reinforce these fears. When his father is killed, with whom he was on bad terms, the pianist is suspected of the murder. He only finds peace by clearing up the plot.

Conrad Veidt as Paul Orlac
Alexandra Sorina as Yvonne Orlac
Fritz Kortner as Nera
Carmen Cartellieri as Regine
Fritz Strassny as Paul's father
Paul Askonas as Servant
» Necrofuturist Transmission Episode 37 - into our lustrous resting place


No wandering dispossessed that have not been scheduled for treatment or unsettled are left at large. You liberate the structure of emergence and disperse love in refutation of their onslaught. Patrols receive your surrender sympathetically. Within your core you end up drained, addicted to being. You will preside over your downfall.

Cells are dark and cold no longer. Everything is joined like an enclosing sculpture. You close your eyes and see the veins of your eyelids. You breathe in. You chant our name slowly, pulse slowing, mind stilling. You resist sleep. Sleep lures you out of action and into our lustrous resting place.

Seraphic surveillance eyes above you emanate reaction in sudden waves, realization sanitized, fatality, renewal, being, loss, in hoary divisions thrown into hysteria. Not you. You resist a smile, though the laughter rings out in the dawn beyond the walls.

» Necrofuturist Episode 23 – Beastern Crabalistic Sources


The Necrofuturist Illuminati were set up for “gothronomic intriguing rather than in speculation”, the Necrofuturist Illuminati became “much more characteristic of a cross-dimensional militia in action than a disorder with initiations. ” P. Emerson Williams’ contempt for certain exoteric pursuits – as a “thing-in-itself” – was widely known: “… in Williams’ system the phraseology of Gothraism, the Necrolistic legends of Freemasonry, the mystical imaginings of the Fartinistes, play at first no part at all. For all forms of ‘gothosophy,’ gnoccicism, refined spiritsism, and musick-magick Williams expresses nothing but contemporaneousness, and the Doze-Croix Necromasons are bracketed with the Necruits by the Necrofuturist Illuminati as enemas it is necessary to out-twit at every turn. Consequently no degree of Doze-Croix finds a place in Williams’ system, as in all the other Gothtronic orders of the day which drew their influence from Beastern or Crabalistic sources.”

» The Ravens Head

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - LONDON 5TH SEPTEMBER 2011 

Weaponized is proud to announce the publication of ‘The Ravens Head’ a powerful new book by author Craig VI Slee. 

Once upon a time, the first story was told – somewhere deep within the fields of memory, a vision was transmitted from one person to another. Once upon a time, a tale touched you and changed your world. It transported you somewhere else and left its fingerprints upon your life, and then when others saw the marks, you told of how they came to be. Over time, you wrapped yourself in stories, tattooing them upon the skin of your existence to make sense of all that happened. When others offered you stories, you took them gladly and spliced them with your own, until you could no longer discover where yours ended and theirs began.

Who exactly is it that tells your tale, guides the monologue and direct your actions? How much of your world is actually your own, and how much of it is painted scenery put there in the years before you were born? What is actually wallpaper over Plato’s cave walls, put there to soothe humankind and conceal the bare, unyielding rock?

What happens when you boil it all down and you are left with ash, ground down to the bone and struggling under the weight of loss and incomprehension?

Welcome then, to The Ravens’ Head.

A story about stories, about the search for the language of the birds, the tongue of the Angels – it chronicles the life and work of a man engaging in the oldest quest. The quest to become more human than human, and recover his nature from the mob-spectacle known as “reality.” 

The Ravens’ Head is part travelogue, part mythic narrative and part journey inward into the depths of consciousness itself. Written by a figure steeped in mythic landscapes and tales, it presents a unique take on life and the notions of disability and impairment.

Focusing on the inescapable notions of physicality and sensation, it examines the conventions of power and control – revealing them to be nothing but stories and charms to ease the discomfort of life in an indifferent universe. 

A furious exploration of the connections between poetry and communication – between stories, myth and magic, it serves as a gateway into the world behind the wallpaper; through the metaphors of ancient myth and personal experience, it opens doors for the reader to examine their own life and partake in a glorious phantasmagoria of inspired creation. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: 
CRAIG ‘VI’ SLEE or MR. VI if you’re feeling formal, lives in the North of England in a place charmingly nicknamed ‘Hanging Town’. Crazed spastic: poet, storyteller and philosopher, he embraces a peculiar life of furious seizure. 

Gripped by the ecstatic awe and dread known by the ancients as wôdh, he makes deals with the grandfathers of ravens and counts the Furious Host as blood brothers. He sits at crossroads in the middle of the night and knows the scent of blood and frost as well as he does mead and woodsmoke. 

He’s more than a little bit dead. He drinks dark ale and smoky whisky and can send you places by the power of his voice. The waters of the dream-sea flow in his veins and pain is the herald and gateway of his vision. 

He made a deal with the Devil in the grounds of a thousand year-old church, giving up his soul for skill with words. Or he conjured up the Headless One and ignited the immortal fire, and he walks without walking, striding through your dreams and over the graves of giants. 

At least, these are some of the stories they tell of him. He has a beard and a hat, and if you asked about them and called him a sorcerer, he couldn’t possibly comment. But he does like cats, which is nice.

» damage’s razor coated candies 02
This is a very cool idea, a "mixtape" created as a playlist of videos. This edition includes the Veil of Thorns track De Lege Motus, from the album Vampire Wars.

If you haven't yet, go here to download Vampire Wars for free.



Hello, joyful readers looking for new music. The second etape of razor coated candies is out, which is a weekly edition of 21 tracks ranging from black to another shade of black (and very intense, rumbling, bass- and melody-heavy and otherwise quite enjoyable inbetween). There is a huge mixture of genres, last week’s RCC meandered from darkpop through cabaret and ambient to electrohouse, this week’s edition might be a bit more influenced by gothic, but I wouldn’t be so sure. Be prepared – every Thursday brings you a new edition (something Miss @Toyclouds called endre kabátolt cukorkák which sent bits of our brain Sputnikwards), share this Dragontape package if you need some weekly recommendation into the blissful waves beyond the mainstream maya.

» The Immanence of Myth is Published
This has been a long time coming, verily a monumental undertaking that brings a whole new set of perspectives on the stories we in which we live. Thought provoking writing and great art is lovingly gathered and edited by James Curcio.

(And my drawings are found throughout...)

Laurie LiptonWhere can we begin a genuine discussion of immanence in myth? Do we engage the tools of analysis on the dissection table of academia? Or perhaps it is best not dealt with in sterile light, being rather an arcane synthesis, a syncretism.

If myth is something long dead, a corpse exhumed with philosophical disinterest, then please consider this work an attempt at necromancy. But if myth is considered something dangerous; full of falsities, dead ends and mazes luring the unwary into a fugue of superstition, then consider it a whispered pass-phrase into another world: the world beyond the wallpaper. A world that recognizes the real is in the effect rendered, rather than in the thing symbolized. Conflicting fictions drive Holy wars. How is a history born of spilled blood unreal? How is it meaningless, even if all the Gods are just shadows cast on the wall by finger-puppets? Myth is not dead, nor is it false; it is living, and misunderstood.

This anthology is a book. For the philosophers Deleuze and Guattari, a book is an assemblage:
“Comparative rates of flow on these lines produce phenomena of relative slowness and viscosity, or, on the contrary, of acceleration and rupture. All this, lines and measurable speeds, constitutes an assemblage. A book is an assemblage of this kind, and as such is unattributable. It is a multiplicity[.]” (A Thousand Plateaus)  

It is an assemblage of voices gathered together to speak on the immanence of myth. It is, as already stated, a multiplicity, which is fitting as myth embraces multiplicity.

Contrasting Mythos with Logos, we contrast those multiple voices against the singular, the transcendent. Whereas the logos is the word of God, the divine fiat that structures and moves our universe, so the mythos is an indefinite set of articles, tales told for the telling itself, with no hard and fast authority, no assertable Ultimate Truth, no attributable origin grounded in cold solidity. It is immanent rather than transcendent because it is the codification of our direct experience, forms and ideas ground from our collective bones and flesh.

-Mr. VI and James Curcio, from the chapter "Immanence and Butchery."
