Here it is. The finished product. I want to thank everyone who worked on it. It is like a short horror film. Very Dario Argento like. Argento is my favorite film maker. Suspiria, Tenebre, Opera are my favorite horror films of all time. I was so happy when Dustin sent me a message about wanting to do this. Seeing some of his other work convinced me this was the way to go. I want to work with him in the future as well. Would love to write music for his films. Or even work on a film with him in some way.
With Maldire, I tapped into the anger of the fallen. The pagans and non christians who were burned alive for being witches, or strange or pagan. Talk to a cat, into the fire. Anal sex, Into the fire. Say anything bad about the christian beliefs, into the fire. The priests of this time period also blamed the pagans for the mini ice age that led to shortages in food. Claimed that the pagans pissed off GOD so they had to kill them all. This did not bring an end to the mini ice age either. What a joke. The Dark AGES woooo. Granted, christians do not own oppressive behavior, seems like most all religions and mob mentalities therein have this wonderful fascism built into them. I chose this because my heritage is very scarred by the christians of yester year. I see this oppression still. Now more towards gay people. It makes me sick. I hate the mob mentality, vigilante justice. Idiots who think they are right and should have the right to take others lives because their stupid morality thinks its superior to all others. No way. This is a fictional tale. In no way do I support murder in the real world. The scary part is, in the future I see food issues, and I am willing to bet the christians are going to come after the goths, the pagans, the gays, and the atheists this time. Be afraid. Be very afraid. History has a sick way of repeating itself.
In other VAC news. Todd Loomis and I have patched things up. He has a tour van. He said he wants to play guitar for VAC and go on the road. This means I have steve and todd now. Stoked. Working out details. Going to try and set up a Velvet Acid Christ / Twilight Garden tour/mini tours. We want to play Canada, we want to play the usa, We have been invited to play on the goth cruise(not sure about that one yet). We are not sure about europe yet. We might be able to make some of the festivals in 2013. As it stands right now, I want to go out maybe this december, maybe feb, maybe march. We are working on it. Just so you know. Live shows “WILL” HAPPEN! Its for for certain. I am working out the stage art, theme, look of the band. Todd will have a new LP out soon with the twilight garden. I am so happy to have Todd back in the fold. He really is the most talented musician I have ever worked with.
^ Remember, Maldire the full LP will be out in north America on Sept 11 2012. In Europe on Sept 14. Spread the word! Thank you …
