BERGRAVEN art, MELVINS comic, etc...






above, from top to bottom:

1. front cover for the forthcoming bergraven album "till makabert väsen". photo is black and metallic gold duotone, with the framed picture in full color. mini-frame with band name and album title will be a sticker affixed to jewel case. basic ideas and photos supplied by bergraven - i've been creating additional elements and assembling this thing, with help from faith coloccia once again...

2. back cover for the same bergraven album. text and frame printed in metallic gold. all artwork will be printed on uncoated stock for that "ole tyme" feel. listen to bergraven.

3. front cover of the newly completed "your disease spread quick", a comic inspired by the music of the melvins. written and drawn by tom neely , published by robotic boot, a hydra head industries subdivision. available at san diego comic con this weekend at tom neely's booth, and at the merch table on the current melvins tour. later to be made available as part of the melvins "senile animal" 4xlp box set, and individually on the HHR webstore. melvins = awesome. tom neely = awesome.

4. back cover of the aforementioned comic. also recommended: tom neely's "the blot".

in other news: mixing of the grey machine album (new project from justin broadrick, with contributions from myself and other affiliates), is finally underway. completion imminent and samples available soon. isis "live IV" and "holy tears" vinyl now available . new isis album still in the writing process, currently on hold due to upcoming shows in chicago and oslo. new lustmord album "other" now available, with guitar contributions from adam (tool), buzz (the melvins), and myself. new house of low culture releases in the works. the band with james plotkin, tim wyskida, and myself is no longer going to be called "vessl", since apparently there is already a band with that name. we're trying to think of something else and having a hard time... really hard. all the good names seem to be taken.

improving the quality of life: wold "stratification", gridlink "amber gray", "batman: the dark knight" (though not quite as good as i was hoping), "bill moyers journal", ghostface killah "supreme clientele", evoken "a caress of the void", helms alee - live in los angeles, orange and robot: excellent (but disobedient) italian greyhounds, organum "omega", carne asada burritos from yuccas too....

I'm glad to be informed that you're working on new material. I can say that listening to ISIS makes me feel more human sometimes . Thank you very much.

what a pitty, vessl sounded nice. i was already envious that guys like you always seem to have good ideas when it comes to name a band. whatever, i guess there should be enough creative juice in all three of you to think of something really good.
by the way, i got a picture for you aaron.
ciao.

Thanks for the heads-up on the Senile Animal LP. I've been waiting to get that on vinyl FOREVER. Now I can wait for it and know not to buy the comic so that I end up ticked off with 2 copies.
