Exorsa now available

'Ten Thousand Miles of Arteries: Exorsa' is now available! As always, it is available from me (email me at to purchase it) or Reckless Records and Permanent Records here in Chicago. Check out the website to listen to 'Death Cry'. I'll put up some other songs in the future.

Two tapes that will be coming out soon(ish):

1) Ten Thousand Miles of Arteries: Exorsa
Blackened industrial annihilation from Chicago. This half hour tape will contain both the 'Holy Monuments' demo from 2006 and the 'The West was Nothing but a Dead Beast' demo from 2008. Neither demos were ever released physically. This tape is serving as a preamble to the first official TTMOA full length coming in 2011.

2) Teeth Engraved With the Names of the Dead: Kosmiche Death Worship
Bleak, terror-inducing drone from Oakland. This will also be TEWND's first physical release.

These are pictures from Monuments only live performance last august. A guitar, a microphone, a sampler, an amp, a looping pedal, and Nicole providing her haunting voice. This was a one time thing, as a favor for a friend. All, if any, future performances will be with a full band.

Weirdo Records in boston (technically, cambridge) is now carrying Monument's 'I'.

Also, Permanent Records here in chicago are all sold out and i don't have very many left, so you can't get them there anymore. Reckless and Logan Square still have some, though.

Things that are happening at Sol Y Nieve:

I) We're in talks with a couple different bands about releasing their stuff. Very very excited to be working with these fantastic artists.

II) A proper website is being made. Hopefully that will be up and running soon.

III) Monument is currently writing new material with a full band. Recording will take place this winter.

Thanks for your interest,

If you don't feel like actually buying one of the Monument tapes, you can head on over to Doom Black . You can download it there. Have fun, cheapskates!

Monument: I now available

Sol Y Nieve's first release, Monument's "I", is now available. Monument makes murky, psychedelic, meditative black metal. It's a limited run of 50 on simple white cassette. Aside from buying it straight from me, you can also purchase it from these record shops:

Logan Hardware

Out of death comes new life.

I'm sure that all 5 of you that read this blog have noticed that it's not been updated in some time. I no longer work my cushy desk job that allowed me the time to service this site, so it won't be continuing in it's present state any longer. It will be continuing, though, as the blog for my tape label (which i have aptly named Sol Y Nieve) and news about my various music and art projects. All the reviews i have done on this site will be transferred over to my other blog, Catena Aurea, which may be updated on a semi regular basis. Thanks for reading this blog up to this point, and i hope you continue to do so.
