REVIEW: Sindre Bjerga & Micromelancolié - Invisible Paths

Reverby scrapes, bursts of noise, atmospheric hums and occasional drones by Sindre Bjerga & Micromelancolié.  Review published by Heathen Harvest, and barely edited at all by Sage Weatherford.

"Not that this album is at all ‘dark’: part of its strength, I think, is that it doesn’t appear to be trying too hard to be anything specific, but ‘just is’, allowing each listener to travel on whatever subjective ‘invisible path’ they are sent down by the sounds on offer."

INTERVIEW: The Vegan Anarchists of the "Which Side" Podcast Talk to me about Truth, Life, Kindness, and "Beef"

Jordan Halliday and Jeremy Parkin, two chaps far more interesting than I (like, "actually going to gaol for illicit mink-rescuing" levels of interesting) decided to Skype-chat with me for their podcast.  We ended up jabbering away about veganism, the lies society wants us to tell to our children, being compassionate to Normals, anarchy in nature, parenthood, and even a little bit about my novel "Beef".  I think I came across as a total waffling loon, so at least it was accurate.

INTERVIEW: The Living Beasts: Broaching Nekrasov’s Hermetic Realm

An interview with one of my all-time favourite blackened noise masters, Nekrasov, talking about the death and resurrection of the Nekrasov project, and the triumphant beginnings of his "negative wizard metal" Rebel Wizard project.  Written for Heathen Harvest, and very mildly edited by Sage Weatherford.

"But then, after a while, you see it’s all the same and what used to be a special and powerful realm rapidly lost its unique presence and morphed into what it despised. What we see today is really an absolute horrid outcome where everyone in the underground is exposed by marketing.  Fucking marketing of all things!  So, when it was ‘revealed’ that the ‘alternative’ was also a farce, I was pretty much ruined and went on my own way."
