NOTE: The "Buy Digital Album" up top will NOT deliver a full album to your inbox because it is not out yet. The digital album will be released once the vinyl/CD is also released -- presumably in April.


7 years in the making, Tchornobog was first conceived in 2009. It can be described as a psychopathic vessel to elaborate the various metaphors of religion, psychological disorder, and auditory hallucinations of the human animal. The purpose of the project was for myself to assume the body as an empathetic creature to understand both the Self and the attempts to find meaning in the world.

"Tchornobog" is not a worship of the Slavic "Black God," but rather a sarcastic evaluation as well as a psychological study of the auditory hallucinations that have empowered creative strife through a barren wasteland. It is a result of heavy meditation in a desert landscape from the perspective of a vessel mountain which harbors a nest for the Mind's Eye to be imprisoned. I witnessed -- without any hope of my eye closing -- the terrible sensory overload of the black vomit of Tchornobog. The recordings provided here are a sonic journal of the metaphorical events and the interpretation of humanity's mind as a whole.

"TCHORNOBOG" is the first chapter in a book of many events in a universe born off the ashes of the inner pupil.
