hello all,
many things since the last things.
japan is/was great. i would like to return.
many thanks to vampillia, nadja, saxruins, chuck, yuko, jv, and everyone we met and spent time with.

MOSSENEK has many recordings to pour through...
there is a new live set up on bandcamp with special guest colin marston.
"Precarious Summoning" has finally been released, CDR and mp3...
Mossenek video we made in Hokkaido, directed by Justina Villanueva:
too much more coming soon, live in japan, new rehearsal albums, maybe some physical shit, you don't want this much but we don't care...

other things...
--i'll be playing solo august 2nd at basilica in hudson ny state as a part of the art show "ambulance blues".  this date marks the 12th anniversary of the bolt that hit NLM and shifted his existence. so this set will be in tribute to him.
--there will be a barrsheadahl show in nyc sometime either august 6,7,8. no venue has been established, no date set in stone, but it will happen.
--the plans are still in motion for krallice to perform at incubate festival in holland sept 17th, plus some other dates around that one. but we shall see if that happens...
--i'll be performing solo at EMPAC in troy ny state october 4th. surround around.
--krallice and myself will support the great norwegian band Virus at st vitus october 24th and 25th. first krallice show in nyc in over a year. first virus us show ever. humbled and honored.
