The second phase of Mechanical Ghost’s all-instrumental sonic ritual, “Ars Moriendi Vol. 2: Oneiroi in Flux” breaches the veil between death and dreams, into new vistas of auditory occultism. Continuing in the vein of “Ars Moriendi Vol. 1: Stepping Sideways and Descending,” the music contained in this opus is more a collection of abstract tonal paintings than easily-digestible plastic pop songs. Beyond the grating scrapes, distorted booms and bangs, reverb-laced and delay-heavy tones, and droning synths that have become Mechanical Ghost’s signature sound; some of these tracks take on an orchestral feel, pulling the album together before dispersing the sound back into far-out ambience. This recording is designed to be an auditory journey, each song leading into the next to tell a story that is largely left up to listener interpretation, conceived in dreams and deep meditative states, with little concern for fitting into any particular box. Listen in the dark, with headphones for an optimal experience.

The Gaki Sessions: Seppuku Party 1702

I’ve been going through some of my old recordings, and dug up something that I thought was long dead. After some consideration, I decided to remaster it and make it available to a wider audience. Originally recorded in 2005, these six previously-unreleased tracks laid the framework for Mechanical Ghost’s sound. Bass-heavy, noisy, distorted, and grungy, with cryptic lyrics growled through nasty filters; this is not friendly music for every ear… But if you enjoy a good, old fashioned digital sonic pummeling, it may be just for you!

This album is dedicated to the memory of Randall J. Samalot, one of this crazy noise’s earliest supporters. Gone, but never forgotten.

Get it here!
