T'was a Turning Point and Prophetic of 2020: Salon Apocalypse

Much of the work of Veil of Thorns and of Choronzon are from the point of view of one being overwhelmed by an onslaught or a flood. This stems from a feeling and repeated visions and dreams starting at the beginning, making it hard to keep to conventional modes of production. How to express warnings and create lines of flight out of the Spectacle without being reterritorialized and thrown back into the machine? The isolation of those who are not idiots insisting on spreading disease as far and wide to prove to themselves that they are of the privileged who will not be ground up in the impending fascist era and witnessing the suicidal madness of the normal machinic direction of gluttonous capital permeates the feeling of this release.

01. Still Bloody Action

02. Sleep, Cut And Run 

03. Intellectual Institutional Object 

04. And The Beast Of The Vision Still Roams In Dreams 

05. Sepulchral Reminder (Torment Rose) 

06. Nearer To Hell (Ideological Corpses) 

07. The Play Is The Thing

08. Nocturne

09. Infinitude 

10. Seduction

11. Windows Blacked Out 

12. The Bell 

13. Autonomous Anonymous Anomalous 

14. The Thing Is In Play 

15. Imagination Thieves 

16. Veiled Shadows Gaze 

17. Soul Intervention


About Veil of Thorns 


Veil of Thorns is an ever evolving concept born of the fevered brain of P. Emerson Williams. Among the growing list of 

collaborators one can find authors, actors and musicians of many genres, reflecting the scope of what P. Emerson 

Williams calls Necrofuturist art. 


Both "Salon Apocalypse" and NECROFUTURIST grew out of the process of working on “The Abattoir Pages” as part of FoolishPeople. The intention was to finish “Salon Apocalypse“, as the concept I had been working with for this release was in the same realm that John Harrigan tapped into for “Abattoir Pages“. Through countless sleepless nights and days of madness, “Necrofuturist” wrote itself as a further expansion of the studies and current we were working with. I would not have chosen to take on so much in such a short period of time, but I really had no choice in the matter. 

“Salon Apocalypse“, “Necrofuturist” and “Abattoir Pages” are inextricably linked, through current and source materials, all preparing the ground for a future work, for which all this work is a mere prologue.


"Both releases are giant steps in a direction one would not have suspected after “Cognitive Dissonance“. In fact, as I go through the Veil of Thorns catalog – this is close to the shift that occurred with the 2003′s “Birthed“." - The Other Sound Magazine 

It’s a masterpiece from beginning to end. P. Emerson Williams is brilliant. He is a master musician whose ability to dive into the darkness – while remaining a musician, is unprecedented in our modern age. Where other artists like to rely on shocking lyrics, or cool effects… Williams writes good musick, and plays most of it himself – again “masterfully”. “Salon Apocalypse” is a aural drama played out for your ears. It weaves in and out of a apocalyptic story line that is just out of reach… The musick… ah, the musick. It’s out of reach to. Death Metal, ambient, noise, industrial, hip-hop, vocal…. it’s all there. Seamlessly. Think of it as a production. Perhaps a musical of the insane… but start to finish it’s complete brilliance. Pulling one track out makes no sense, as the release as a whole plays as a complete work. The musick is everywhere (gothick, metal, hip hop, ambient, everything), yet the release is incredibly cohesive. If you are interested in hearing bit’s and pieces then tune into Inner-X-Musick Radio… it should pop up some what frequently. -TBM 

Veil Of Thorns - Salon Apocalypse/Necrofuturist (Inner X Musick)

Two collections of strange ambiences, dystopian noisescapes and cinematic out-thereness from P. Emerson Williams, who periodically unleashes bursts of his weird sonic art upon the world from his Bond villain-style base in Florida. Actually, I made up the bit about the Bond villain-style base, but there's certainly a sense that this music comes from somewhere quite detached from the everyday world. If it doesn't emanate from the crater of a hollowed-out volcano, it should do.

Necrofuturist runs the gamut from the future-folk of 'Through The Fire' to the psychedelic voodoo ritual of 'The Vandal's Exquisite Corpse' - I'll be very disappointed if the back-masked voices on this one aren't reciting some sort of invocation to raise the dead. But then there's the brief interlude of 'Waltz', a strange country three-step, all chiming guitars, bent notes and echoes, like something the KLF would've put on Chill Out. Meanwhile, 'The Reflection' is all swelling, spooky drones, as if David Bowie decided to remake Low in Tibet. If this makes it sound like there's a bewildering variety of music here, that's because there is - but it all hangs together in a blur of ambience and iconoclasm and other-worldly grooves.

Salon Apocalypse is a yet more capricious beast. 'Still Bloody Action' mashes folk-disco with metallic mayhem; but, further in, 'Windows Blacked Out' sounds like the city's small-hours madness, recorded by dangling microphones from the top of a skyscraper. 'The Thing Is In Play' wrests things in yet another direction: stuttering, nervy, electro gives way - incongruously, scarily - to sounds of stress and conflict, half-heard through walls. This is the soundtrack to the film flickering in your midnight imagination. Be sure to lock the doors tonight. And stay away from the volcano.

‘Windows Blacked Out’ is a snatch of something mental, ambient with mumbled overlay, while ‘The Bell’ could be a rare recording of Vincent Price. ‘Autonomous Anonymous Anomalous’ returns to scuffed-up rock daubs jumbled into a cacophonous sludge. Me, I like a nice tune, so I have no idea what’s going on. ‘The Thing Is In Play’ fidgets and slithers with some dance intention or other, ‘Imagination Thieves’ is a moody vocal scene, ‘Veiled Shadows Glaze’ adding in some more vocal drama and musical swirls, before they come close to something conventional to close with ‘Soul Intervention’ sounding a bit like Red Hot Chilli Peppers spinning upside down on their heads.

We have the other two albums they’ve just released over the next two nights. To infinity and…somewhere else besides. -Uncle Nemesis


Veil of Thorns - Salon Apocalypse - Mick Mercer Review

Inner-X-Musick

This where acid rock and Industrial-triphop fuse, where you try and make easy sense of it all and you lose. Worryingly, it does begin to make more sense the more you listen. The walls close in during ‘Still Bloody Action’ as the rhythm clashes with a set of vocals that make you think someone has woken Merlin. If that’s your sort of thing, read on…

Their collective lungs breathe out metal splinters in a confusing ‘Sleep, Cut And Run’ and I’m assuming that’s none other than Aidan McGoran on guitar, although it may not be, but he’s on here somewhere, and Pandora wheels away like an acid casualty cutting her safety chord on a space walk. There’s a different mood for ‘Intellectual Institutional Object’ as P. Emerson Williams rambles on like the Godchild of William Burroughs channelling Bob Dylan, offering a nice bit about ‘Devil to a half-Devil dissolve.’ Pandora’s got back into the space station and seems suitably contrite.

‘And The Beast Of The Vision Still Roams In Dream’ would appear to be a distantly observed orchestra balanced on an electricity pylon shrouded in fog. ‘Sepulchral Reminder (Torment Rose)’ brings in a solid beat as our vocal host sounds like a deranged headmaster as the sound falls in on itself, threshing wildly. (Imagine robots falling down very long stairs.) The psychedelic guitar motif that floats on high above ‘Nearer To Hell (Ideological Corpses)’ gives it all a stronger impact. At least we know we’re on Earth with a poisoned watery dance thing. ‘The Play Is The Thing’ appears to be a continuation, the guitar briefly evident before things tick into a slower, oppressive gear then disintegrates into am ambient maelstrom.

‘Nocturne’ is another thing entirely, windswept and ghostly, with some accommodating bass and fuzzy logic, all art dance friendliness. ‘Infinitude’ is a stripped down, pacey alt-rock avalanche, and ‘Seduction’ is a bit of a torch thing with Pandora waving the flaming torch a bit near your face and the music wandering into filmic horror.

‘Windows Blacked Out’ is a snatch of something mental, ambient with mumbled overlay, while ‘The Bell’ could be a rare recording of Vincent Price. ‘Autonomous Anonymous Anomalous’ returns to scuffed-up rock daubs jumbled into a cacophonous sludge. Me, I like a nice tune, so I have no idea what’s going on. ‘The Thing Is In Play’ fidgets and slithers with some dance intention or other, ‘Imagination Thieves’ is a moody vocal scene, ‘Veiled Shadows Glaze’ adding in some more vocal drama and musical swirls, before they come close to something conventional to close with ‘Soul Intervention’ sounding a bit like Red Hot Chilli Peppers spinning upside down on their heads.

We have the other two albums they’ve just released over the next two nights. To infinity and…somewhere else besides.

Veil of Thorns Witness EP now available everywhere

Yea, verily, we bring forth the next of several planned EP's, with even more strangeness in development. Name-your-price download is available here: http://digital.panicmachine.com/album/witness

Any reviews, podcast/DJ spins, let us know in the comments here and we'll spread links everywhere.

Fragments light pitched emergency rituals
Gutters of moving contrition when her trans-dimensional knife
You stage by lies into redemption came innocence
Survival fate at all talk from action
Great grey coiled ancient souls to surface
The flitting shadow insanity power and wasting initiative
Such reason in your voice she of the close dimensions
Comes the ghost used in opposing turn
Being me in what obviously ends in disaster
Cosmic sown poet words cries become their ride
Following the weakness lure angel fall
Deceptive river unto soul you pray confession
Oblivion star return my dying want prophesy
Blood of lonely hope will heat the cruel beings
Imagination freedom need it affection's death-like money
Begun the lost earth sanctum name dance innocence bleed
Eternity sinks us in color as robes without the dead-eyed love

Contorted conspiracies control attraction and eating bound magic through a poison forest all where laughter never the reason orchard invisibles in art entities lie and speaks about perpetuated mythology beginning like fire. Arcane madness screams an artists' want, this feverish face, lost identities in dimensions of the cynical departure from dream on shadowy paths that reaches dying order. Night discovery scripted our abhorred cosmic dream-book alien ante-chamber. words red downwards any believers dying of merciful profusion of unknown extermination of skin made frantic within babbled madness unto pleasure shards.

1. Fear Spreads (The Undying Truth)

lyrics:

Fear Spreads (The Undying Truth)

The Dharma of the coming fall of night

When chronological hierarchy is found

Old world evil of a mind unbound

Straight long mechanical Invisibles

The Established Famous fire a laugh

Fear spreads as We Down here release

The undying truth piece by piece

Fear spreads as We Down here release

The undying truth piece by piece

Every version of You playing out of tune

used strong Skin on deteriorated moons

you flower with The bloom of love

From whence rises a watching sun


Fear spreads as We Down here release

The undying truth piece by piece

Fear spreads as We Down here release

The undying truth piece by piece

My original classification for identified moon beings)

2. Dead Moon

Dead Moon

A table minds and understand embraced slow lies

The fresh dread writers piece or secrets

Grasp bodies and mind



Imagination everlasting the identified circles

Your blackest religion, a dead-moon highway



3. Your Far Dead Star



4. Expressions

lyrics:



Expressions



Devil becomes love expressions

Moved theoretically

Wailing in glass

Corruption

element of the future

In a ruptured cruel relation

Exorcise grief



Odd end, extraordinary media

Expressionless truths, conceptions

Imperfections



Gaping fabrications of gratifications past

Gratifications reflect the field device

Among the warm populace grown famous



Odd end, extraordinary media

Expressionless truths, conceptions

Imperfections



The lash



5. Veil the Face of Darkness



about



Contains the key to the hypersigil...



Necrofuturists will spend the oncoming apocalypse, weaving the chaos of collapse into visions of art.



forever between notebooks and prophesy possibility

down suppression pages imagination suppression

stories memory open to book some saint represents

deep tearing mother strange steel show

mind to missing initiative the held reaching secrets

system thus they touch the pattern lies study

build earth fire dread humans back



But come earth shadow confession slipped spent

So These bodies opening fact as will in our mission

the bleeding off of symbols known through the veins

money give repeated pain but see the executioner's city

seeds obtain the new entities kiss the real in books

grow that trance but be munition wastes possessed

synthetic bone reflecting elements in acid breathing

However dead those whispered entities mask the pleasure

nothing beyond the freedom mind translated

So receive trance madness assumes ecstasy

poison state denomination touch so sacred

The heart creations gasp frantic cruel acceptance

in the mirth misguided sages that clean eternity

but redemption because prophesy writers all Nameless

life was spread ever-greater destiny slow subconscious

If power vengeance eyes books love dread sanctum

the black scattered shatter of sin opposing sacred stars

on hanging cross holding open the daemonum

the initiative and this prototype amusement

when bits of wrath was eating our suppression

hope orchard off your rooms like shadow gutter idols

the you of pulped mind even knife in wisdom

here a future paint only a witness dream-book forest

what bleeds her screams in me strength writing you

still strong with half the pleasure on wind screeching

bright ghost predictions burn believing body mashed art

the pathway much dark wonder sign pours on

a meaning everlasting and footsteps became elegance

take indifferent photographs the old highway to freedom

Veil of Thorns - Dosage

Dosage



In a society racing towards oblivion, its machinic egregoreplex advances control processes that are ultimately futile. The psyche breaks down under the strain and reconfigures as a medium for an alien intelligence. The demonic is a manifestation of future shadow selves transmitted from down the darkest timeline. Society shapes itself to bring this potential into being.

Veil of Thorns - Manifestation Objective (2005) [Full Album Video]


https://digital.panicmachine.com/album/manifestation-objective
https://open.spotify.com/album/11aQyRVOmjMyo7KUwQDEDI

Originally released as a CDR back in 2005. Veil Of Thorns 2005 masterpiece was conceived during a period of hyper activity for P. Emerson Williams who also released two Choronzon CD’s at the same time (“New World Chaos” and “Panic Pandemic”.)

###

This was out a few years ago but has now reappeared in a mini-slew of recent releases, highlighting the more accessible area of their shady swamplike sound, for when not disturbing Veil Of Thorns can always offer the generally disturbed.
‘Reproach (Full Of Hope)’ is essentially groaning rock pulling at its own restraints, stretchy, floaty and melodic to the point of being sensitive.
‘My Inner Sanctum’ gets the bovine bass swinging, and with a nimble rhythm and delicate vocals it’s positively catchy in its ghostly silkiness.
‘Exaltation In Ascendancy’ is a slurry or agitated, urgent muted mutant rock and ‘Worship Of Disclosure’ consistently devious in its dipping rhythmical demeanour, with the vocals unusually sparse and lilting. Furtive, light guitar scurries beautifully in the hydraulic ‘Manifestation Objective’ which always threatens to go into freefall.
‘Draw In, Wind Down’ is a dyed-in-the-wool dying dawdle, ‘Dream Shadow’ preferring a blipverting Goth-psyche tangle, agony and ecstasy kicked under the table and left to fight it out. ‘Can’t Stop Laughing (The Beauty Of Drowning)’ gets to its knees threatening to be ‘Goldfinger’ but soon starts to snake around having a gloomy seizure but some spectacularly tingly guitar hauls it up by pointy bootstraps. ‘Undergrowth Silent With Want.’ works as an inflated sort of drone and by the time it’s finished you’re stuck in its addled groove, and the petite circles creating ‘Fated, Cascading, Submerged’ also snag you easily, being a thin veneer of a psychedelia, smeared with rock sighs. Then ‘Extend Inward, Breathe Out’ bewilders, crashing in like an alternate Portishead ending, but slowly disintegrating into ‘The Gathering World Withdrew Its Fury’ which lumbers off bleary, slowly, sore of head and heavy of heart, Plenty here. -Mick Mercer

shiny red beads falling, cling to the feet

Wisdom tears you apart

What am I on about with th lyrics here? Hard telling. I usually figure that out later... -P. Emerson Williams

Mask Our Fascination
Home where a carved grotesque imagination
Is the horror of the Art study, lies.
A declaration infected each sun
Forever with flawed wanderlust madness.

The undying prophesy, screen observations,
Monitor patrons, masquerade, argue art.
And Three red imaginary dream
Disguise words, on the knowledge possibility
Of innocence conjunction.

Identities, other Trouble, dimension Found.
Humanity, thoughts glow, all perpetuated time.
Scripted dispersion poison, the undying cloud,
That night still mask our fascination

The undying prophesy, screen observations,
Monitor patrons, masquerade, argue art.
And Three red imaginary dream
Disguise words, on the knowledge possibility
Of innocence conjunction.

Born of spontaneous compulsion, a new track from Veil of Thorns comes our way. There is something big and far-reaching in the works for Veil of Thorns in 2014, but this is not connected. We have been warned there may be more single tracks in store...


Ideation Ante-Chamber 
But this cage decedents mushroom Intuition
Open tune in to sensationalism
Mythology of work that throne
Remnants cross rehearsal indicates
Work misery contorted books misleading
Up there by bleeding murder of rage
The figure creations discovery
Dwelling in restriction hands apply  
The hunger exploitation
Rarely Found beings grown strange
The ideation ante-chamber
Dying matters
Intelligent knife pleasure  
Dead around light dripping insanity blood model
Contains obscuring following static under the seeds
The quelling and innocence disease eating their arm
Just cannibals debate memory eating
Sacrifice a time realization that technology flesh artworks
Pervasiveness and glow denial words the abhorred
Straining felt in half-hidden power touch years of vision 
The hunger exploitation
Rarely Found beings grown strange
The ideation ante-chamber
Dying matters
Intelligent knife pleasure

Available Soon: DIAMOND DUST BLOWBACK Single


Diamond Dust Blowback

Neon exhibit, walk through the light
Art as we live it, hanging on tight 
To the forms and expressions
Act on loose impressions
Forms wrought of air
Our medium your unseeing stares

Diamond dust
Diamond dust 
Diamond dust
Diamond dust blowback

A masterpiece of prepared defacement
A dance, a flash tribe displacement
Poems writ in blood
Re-combined at random
The essence of our art
Lies in the tearing apart

Diamond dust
Diamond dust

Diamond dust blowback

Burning Photon music
Diamond dust blowback
Converting flesh to signals
Diamond dust blowback

Here's a little progress report on the Veil of Thorns tracks. Coming right up, we'll be releasing another single, the cover for which you can see above. The mix of the "A Side", as it were is complete and a couple remixes are in the works. We may throw in a remix of an existing Veil of Thorns track as well. These mixes are about 80% there. This should be coming in the next week or two.


Now, perhaps a few words on what we're up to are in order. To start with the usual vagueness, part of the larger project has to do some stuff with some graveyard footage, actors, poetry, fiction art and more...

The dreaded GOTHRONOMICON has been brought to us and is being translated by mute scribes and the content held therein tested by fearless and skilled mages, though a few have been lost between space... We have a tip on where to find the Gothrapocrypha and some info on what it will take to obtain it. We hope to get this process on film.

The plan with these singles is to release one or two songs at a time, with a lot of extras. This is part of the process of creating the next album. Those who collect the singles are helping fund operations. More than that, with the singles is a ton of exclusive material, including art, short stories, and videos, to mention a few. The more we can bring in, the more ambitious we can get with packaging, collaborative partners and more.  The more you buy, share, stream on Spotify or wherever you like to get your music, play on your radio shows, podcasts and spin in clubs, the better what we create will be. If you do play our music on your show, podcast etc. let us know so we can spread your links around.

Keep an eye on this space and on PANICMACHINE, for much is in store and updates should be coming early and often.

New Single: VEIL OF THORNS - The Girl Without A Face

The first of a number of specially priced EP's is here and available on PANICMACHINE!! We had some great contribution to the remixes and I'm extremely proud of this lineup with is me (P. Emerson Williams), Ferenc Teglas and Aidan McGoran. More details are in the pdf booklet that comes with the download. At a mere two dolluh 't'is a bahgain! Below are the words and images from the label and you can stream or buy this EP right here.


It's here, the first new music from Veil of Thorns in quite some time. The first of several planned "singles" from the band. (Six trax spanning 38 minutes can be considered a single by today's malleable standards. And at $2, you get a lot.) to the band's official pronouncement The Girl Without A Face is: A story ripped from thee pages ov thee dreaded GOTHRONOMICON!

And previews of material and contracts connected with this project is not on paper, but on something which seems to react to the touch, like it's alive and reading our souls as we handle it...


The Girl Without A Face Includes remixes by Veil of Thorns members P. Emerson Williams and Ferenc Teglas and other gems were wrought by a few elusive and mysterious artists. Like the Bath Salts Mix - from Grave Knave - soundz kinda like codeine, actually. Maybe this is the comedown... Veil of Thorns give Big Thanx to Grave Knave for the rough treatment. Hive Mind Drones bring the sound of at the minimum mass hysteria to their mix, of not something more harrowing and sinister. On the final Drone Mix, Solar Sound System got abrasively meditative on the track...

A whole lotta art is going to be created as part of the upcoming Veil of Thorns release(s). Dissemination shall happen through digital, print and sale of originals. Something very strange is developing in the form the lyrical/prose aspect and odd goings on have been spotted on Emerson's estate...

Forthcoming Single: Veil of Thorns - The Girl Without A Face


While things have been silent over in this corner, we've been hard at work. Members have been adding parts in studios from Florida to Belfast, Northern Ireland, to Utrecht, Holland. Accompanying art is in process, and there is to be a lot of art. Scripts and lyrics are keeping me awake at night and actors are bringing many shades of genius to the project.

Above is the cover for the first single - A hint at one of the many things in the works. Once this single is let loose, more shall come early and often... Keep checking here, the Veil of Thorns Farcebook page and PANICMACHINE.
