BresnixCast #38 Kill Your Friends

Album Out Now!

 

My first album is out now on all your favourite digital formats!  

Described as “Arab Strap doing industrial noise” it's an account of a millennial having an early midlife crisis in a world that is no longer run on common sense, where facts are denied and speech is stifled. Seeking death as a way out our protagonist is horrified when he realizes that death is not the end he hoped for and not only will he be forced to live this life over and over again as different people, but he has been doing that for eternity. He finally understands that he is unable to break the cycle because no matter what he does he cannot let go of himself.

The songs infuse elements of noise, drone, industrial, ambient rock and spoken word to create a dark, fragile sound.

BresnixCast #37 Klaus Morlock

 

 

Klaus Morlock returns for a 2 hour show for a free flowing discussion that covers many topics including horror movies, particularly the Witch (2015) and A Dark Song (2016). We get into the occult references in the films and what the reality of occultism is (which leads us to Vlad's journey into the occult). We also get into Aldous Huxley, social media and it's lasting effects on people, Kenneth Anger, Klaus' invitation to Bohemian Grove, the satanic panic and we finish off by having some fun with conspiracy theories and pretty much destroy the flat earth theory.
This was a great show and definitely not one to miss!
