  • The next A.L.N. release...

    Hello all,

    The time has come for me to announce the next A.L.N. release.

    This month marks five years for Mizmor and in honor of that I am self-releasing a limited edition discography box-set.

    Mizmor - The Psalter MMXVII: Five-Year Commemorative Discography.

    This is a triple cassette, +3.5 hour box-set, spanning the entire Mizmor journey from song "0" to the end of "Yodh."

    I have commissioned new art work from Blial Cabal to grace this box-set. He is preparing an incredibly detailed, custom themed tryptich which accurately represents the Mizmor journey, each panel being one cassette cover. The art will be printed in black and silver on thick cardstock. The tapes will come wrapped in a back patch of Blial's artwork also.

    Also inside the box will be the complete lyrics to the Mizmor project. I am making these myself, presenting them as a booklet on translucent vellum paper.

    Additionally there will be a Mizmor logo metallic enamel lapel pin (black on silver) as well as a digital download card for the entire discography, including a brand new track which I will premier when sales of this box go live. 

    All this will come in a custom sized and printed Mizmor tuck/flap style box.

    My hope is to have these available for sale at the end of March/beginning of April. I'm doing a lot of this myself, making sure all is just right - so of course it is subject to delays. The mailing list will receive an email when I am ready to start taking orders. I am only making 200 of these (hand-numbered). All art and merch items will be exclusive to this box.

    The DIY approach is tedious... The things we do for love.

    This info will go out in an announcement email soon.

  • Winter

    Hey all,

    It's a new year now. It's cold, grey, and raining constantly in Salem. 

    Yesterday I went around Portland checking in on my record consignment agreements. If you live in Portland, OR you should consider checking out Exiled Records. I didn't realize this, but they have many rare underground tapes for sale in their case including 2 copies of the Mizmor/Dross split cassette (hand-numbered and limited to 150, sealed in wax; unopened... this tape has been sold out for 2 years). They also had A.L.N. - "Iyov", the Hell/Mizmor split, and Urzeit - "Anmoksha" cassettes among other great underground gems. 

    Mizmor records have been restocked at Exiled, Music Millenium, 2nd Avenue, and Mississippi Records in Portland and at Ranch Records in Salem

    Urzeit records are now available at Exiled, 2nd Avenue, and Mississippi Records in Portland. 

    This winter is creeping by most heavily. There are things beginning to formulate on the horizon, however. Soon I will have "Yodh" t-shirts (Beksinski), a Mizmor hoodie (new art), and Urzeit "Anmoksha" t-shirts (restock) available for sale. "Yodh" 2LPs will be restocked one more time. I will also be announcing the next A.L.N. release in the near future. 

    Thank you all for a great 2016. 

    Good luck,

    A.L.N.

  • Autumn 2016 :: Hell Tour, Urzeit's "Anmoksha," Mizmor shirt restock

  • Post-Fest Carnage

    Friends,

    Yesterday I spent 90 minutes at the post office shipping 90 packages. All pre-orders and orders in general have been shipped out. This was the biggest post-office day to date for Mizmor. Thanks for your patience and support. It took me longer to complete this task than I had hoped because of the time and energy it took to participate in Migration Fest last weekend.

    A special thank you to Matt, Kento, and Andy for making the first Mizmor performance possible, and to Adam Bartlett for hosting the best festival in years and getting behind Yodh. Thank you Sarah-Ray for your help on that weekend. Thank you to everyone who attended the fest, shared the first performance with me, and came to say hi and support me at the merch booth. You all are essential to me and the positive vibes I felt from everyone was powerful. 

    I will be updating the store in the next week or two with Yodh 2LPs, embroidered patches, and decals. The mailing list will be notified when this happens. Long sleeve shirts will be made available too, from Gilead Media and/or myself.

    ...Keep an eye out in the next few weeks for premiers from Urzeit's forth-coming full-length, Anmoksha (releasing October of this year).
