New Track - "Gloom Canyon's End" and the journey behind the album's completion

The newest album Gloom Canyon has been been a most excellent journey through the darker and much more rustic side of this project thus far. As i have captured each track I have been doing all i can to paint a picture of this entire world that is inside my head. My intention is to take everyone to a new place in each experience i put out there.

The album had started out in a fictional place called "Gloom Canyon". It is a vast, terrifying, dangerous, beautiful, and misunderstood place of emptiness, evil, lurking creatures, and the only gang to survive it's destructive love, "The Cold Cowboys". The Cold Cowboys neither human, man, or animal roam this land with no real destination or goal that anyone knows of. Some have been close enough to see the glowing white eyes that subtly peek through the dark shadows of their hat and just above their rustic dirt caked bandannas across their faces. It's assumed they are the primary keepers of this land and everything it holds. This is the land i have worked to take everyone who listens through. A lot of influence from artists such as Barn Owl, Grails, Svarte Greiner, Hammock, Tim Hecker, Nadja, and Earth helped in the direction of these recordings.

Gloom Canyon's End is in the end of the line and final track. You've journeyed through all of Gloom Canyon and survived it's challenges. The end is here with crushing drone and beats.
