After my “Is all martial industrial the same?” post a couple of years ago, Sage L. Weatherford, editor of Heathen Harvest, reached out to me and asked if I’d like to do some writing for Heathen Harvest. I had some trepidation about this. Writing is not something that comes easily to me. Indeed, I would even describe it as painful. I’m one of those writers for whom every word goes onto the page accompanied by an inwardly-directed curse at how stupid it sounds.
So I said yes.
Over the course of a year I wrote thirteen articles with a schedule of one per month (enforced by Beeminder):
- Live Report: Jo Quail – ‘Five Incantations’ Launch in London
- Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio – [Vision:Libertine]: The Hangman’s Triad
- Rukkanor – Desireth
- Hezaliel Has Produced an Accomplished and Enjoyable Dark Ambient Debut with “Falling on Earth”
- Peter Bjärgö’s Return as Sophia Exquisitely Defiles the Industrial Underground with “Unclean”
- Wappenbund / Erdschleife – Split
- Live Report: Blood Axis & Naevus in London
- Two Dark Art Savants Collide When In Slaughter Natives Meets Nihil on “Ventre”
- Kraschau’s “Une Foi d’Acier” Takes Martial Industrial Somewhere New: Mexico’s Cristero War of the 1920s
- Lustmord’s “Dark Matter” Frustrates and Rewards in Equal Measure
- Twenty Years on, Desiderii Marginis’s “Songs over Ruins” Still Delights
- “Animus Retinentia” Shows Peter Bjärgö’s Mastery of the Melancholic
- Get Lost in the Darkly Lit World of Empusae and Colin H. Van Eeckhout’s “Lueur”
Happily, I got better at getting words out onto the page as a result of all that.
Heathen Harvest is one of the finest publications in its field. I’m honoured to have had the opportunity to contribute to it.
