VEIL OF THORNS BRINGS THE SOUNDTRACK FOR THE NECROFUTURE WITH VENERATING SKIN
It is the long standing habit of Veil of Thorns to gaze into the abyss of the human psyche until the Abyss imparts its secrets out through their sonic art. Venerating Skin shows how P. Emerson Williams and his community of Necrofuturists will spend the oncoming apocalypse, weaving the chaos of collapse into visions of art.
Concluding a cycle born of meditations on creative consciousness dissolution, desert landscapes and reaching the point where sanity no longer serves one, Venerating Skin comes forth like a transmission of cataclysm endured.
Revolution noise dissolves into static, static into the sight of the flashing, blinding light that weaves into your particles and carries them off into the cold void. The succession of images that gave the illusion of movement go up in an instant. That spark that lit them was the only thing ever to illuminate them.
After the inferno, the ever-lasting cold.
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.
Veil Of Thorns are beyond anything you have experienced and combines so much to make quite a unique sound. - Culture Asylum Magazine
Just when you have become used to experiencing your guitar stimulants, your ethereal relaxants, your electronic placebo, along comes Doctor Thorns, like a knight in deliberately ill-fitting armour and bellows ‘No more!’ causing all patients to fall from their beds. Where a lot of old-school Industrialists make deliberately obscure, ugly amateurish trash and new Industrialists churn out whatever club-friendly sounds they hope will land them a big record deal, there are some artists wading sternly through the same muddy waters with more artistic sensibilities. Veil Of Thorns may make threatening music but it is not without gentler asides, and often presents itself in alluring form. - Mick Mercer

Shredded nerves and blown out synapses entangle to break with the consensus. At the center of the storm is found the silence with which to make the chaos to come into a groove sensation. Psychic stasis becomes decisive, surgical action, collapse becomes growth. Beneath each image is the unformed, an eternal promise.

Getting apocalyptic and cryptically promising that a key to the hypersigil that makes up their entire discography is to be found therein.
Choronzon released Egregore Manifest Destiny, a slice of cut-up theory fiction hidden in layers of noise and psychedelia.
Egregore (also egregor) is an occult concept representing a "thoughtform" or "collective group mind", an autonomous psychic entity made up of, and influencing, the thoughts of a group of people. The symbiotic relationship between an egregore and its group has been compared to the more recent, non-occult concepts of the corporation (as a legal entity) and the meme.
Eliphas Lévi, in Le Grand Arcane ("The Great Mystery", 1868) identifies "egregors" with the tradition concerning the "Watchers", the fathers of the nephilim, describing them as "terrible beings" that "crush us without pity because they are unaware of our existence."Last summer P. Emerson Williams was at NecronomiCon, Providence for a performance with Godflesh and Morne. The sounds he recorded in praparation were gathered and released as the NecronomiCon Sessions.
Upon returning from NecronomiCon 2019, I feel like letting the recordings of guitar improvisations and the two spoken word sections I bellowed out. It was a great experience to bring this unique performance to NecronomiCon 2019, a concept from Jarboe which also included Kris De La Force and Brett Robinson, each person bringing their own sonic magick to the proceedings.
