ECHTRA'S "PARAGATE"...


Hey folks, just letting you know I now have available the most recent Echtra CD offering entitled "Paragate." I'll have this item posted within the GTR catalog shortly. However it is now available for sale & selling for $13.00(US) & $15.00(World) postage included. Please add an additional 10% processing fee if purchasing the work through Paypal.
I also had the honor of contributing the graphic layout & print design for said release. Below are a few words regarding the craft, as well as the cover art. I hope you will find the time to take the journey offered by Echtra's spirit. Thank you for taking the time to read...


 “Echtra’s Paragate”, an essay of origins, is a psycho-physiological journey into the Otherworld. This aural chronicle of the soul’s flight from corporality issues from the Land before spiraling down into the heart of Earth, in the process loosening the stranglehold of dislocation modern humans labor under. Echoes of the Hunter stalking the prey of meaning ring out in the caverns of Spirit while arcane dances commence by the fireside; the chthonic depths offer their healing flame to our essence. After plumbing the lengths of these tunnels he is risen to the Heavens, taking flight in order to fully embody the liberty written in our blood. Above and Below make love in the flesh of the Seeker, engorged with breath and bearing the weight of the sweetest fruit.
Obliterating genre conventions in favor of the creation of an immersive soundworld, “Echtra’s Paragate” integrates the distortion and vigor of Black Metal sonics with the resolve and earthiness of acoustic songcraft. Arpeggios swirl in etheric spirals, augmenting and negating each other in a dance of intimateness, rhythms altering and disappearing altogether as they herald of the stations of the Seeker’s peregrination.
Chronicled in the long ago of MMVI, performed Yule MMVII, and now issued on CD from the dark of Winter MMXI by Echtra & Temple of Torturous, as dictated by the Spirits and for the benefit of all beings.
This rite of transits facilitates rest, a trust in the truth of Life.
“…for only by becoming completely and totally gone are we to be found…”

BLOOD OF THE BLACK OWL...

"Light the Fires! is at once, calling in desperation for a communal manifestation! The collective awakening of an inherent connectedness to all & the crucial ignition of need fire. A sacred flame lighting the path & re-connecting the primal spirit within us all. For the time has come, as our folk look upon these final days, spiraling towards a new age. It is this spirit, battered & bruised, suppressed & spiritually bred out, that belongs to no particular gender, race, age, system or path. Its only prerequisites are awareness, dignity & respectful participation...Listen...Act...Rise & Shine oh beautiful flames!"

In BLOOD OF THE BLACK OWL news, a fourth full length collection entitled "Light the Fires!" looks to be released sometime during mid year 2011. No official release date has been set & I'm quite humbled to announce that both www.bindrunerecordings.comwww.handmadebirds.com will join together in sending this voice out into the void. The collection will be released as a deluxe spot UV, "Old Style" Stoughton 5" gatefold CD. A double 180 gram 12" Stoughton gatefold LP, will also be made available through both Bindrune & Handmade Birds later on this year. The vinyl will feature an exclusive opening ritual to the format.

CHANGES ARE COMING...

June, MMXI

Greetings my friends & yes, Glass Throat Recordings is still very much an active entity!

My apologies to our loyal community for such a sustained silence, absence from the digital realm & lack of overall release "productivity." However professional, as many of you should come to know by now, I have never considered GTR a "label" in the traditional, or corporate sense. Thus, I refuse to work within the confines of such lifeless commodity & sterile trappings. This absence I've mentioned, has not been without being, It's "being" that becomes the focal point here, rather than another human doing. It has been a wonderfully open & deeply satisfying time for spiritual practice, wilderness retreating, turning & balancing the great four quartered wheel within. A clarity is present now, which is enabling me to process this "digital experience", in a much more beneficial & inspiring manner...But I digress.

As some of you may have noticed, while maintaining dignity & a deepening respect for the growth of sacred intent, I've chosen to distance myself & all musical voices, from any outside venues such as: Myspace, Facebook, You Tube, Last.fm, Discogs & all the other countless distractions. I simply no longer find said sources appropriate in relation to my own personal path. I've come to the unfortunate reality, that along with the unauthorized low quality down loading epidemic, I've begun to notice many others have taken liberties in creating their own forums, venues & "informative" pages that are simply NOT authorized, nor supported by myself & the GTR family. These sites or "sources" are all to often severely outdated, littered with incorrect credentials & feature misinterpreted or misrepresented information regrading my own work & that of my GTR family. An aesthetic value, if any, is usually appalling & said sources far to often, display incorrect artwork & photographic imagery that does not coincide, support, nor represent the ever growing spirit of my own ritual musical practice, as well as the vision of a community I'm deeply connected with. 

With all this said, I'm pleased to announce, that in due time a whole new updated website for GLASS THROAT RECORDINGS / VISIONS will launch...hopefully by the end of Summer? I'm in the crucial stages now, of finding the right designer with skill & experience to update this dinosaur & visually capture, a beautiful vision I have for it. In short, the idea is to have an OFFICIAL SOURCE for my own endeavors, as well as the works of my GTR family if need be. There will be a vast MP3 / GTR radio player implemented & each artist will have their own "Myspace" conceptual if you will. You'll also now find a blog / forum for those of you willing & interested in drinking directly from the well & not having to absorb the facade built by others. So yeah, this should have been done a long time ago, as I've neglected this side of the "business" if you will & it has finally caught up with me. But I'm ignorant to this branch of "artistic control." I've been a publisher of my own recordings, artwork & personally developed sacred symbolism for 15 years now, so it's about time I got my proverbial shit together. Anyhow, there is a buzz within the old GTR office as of late & we are excited to finally produce a home, a digital source for those whom have shown GTR such love & respect for all these years...So yeah, it will be a slow process but the flame is lit!

I'm quite happy to report there is also one other OFFICIAL source available for folks to purchase our recordings. We have opened up a small shop, courtesy of our good friends over at HEX MAGAZINE. Please take a look here: http://www.hexfolkmarket.com/shops/glass-throat-recordings
