What kind of spirits live inside tiny sounds? What kind of clouds float above silence? Honestly, I don’t have the answers, but when I listen to A DEATH CINEMATIC, for some reason I feel like I have the answers. This one man noise guitar doom wizard knows how to craft otherworldly sounds with the music he creates. Most of the time his compositions are wordless, but at the same time speak all of these wonderful emotions. A DEATH CINEMATIC’s newest record is entitled The New World, out now on his own Simple Box Construction imprint. His music is all about the invisible, because it’s full of unseen forces that capture your imagination.
Sean, Cvlt Nation

A Death Cinematic's latest in-house project, The New World, is presented as being two releases in one, specifically one that includes the CD component—fifty minutes of slow-burning guitar meditations—and the photo booklet, Prelude to the New World—twenty-two photographs of outdoors industrial and natural scenes. In truth, the project (available in a limited edition of 150 hand-numbered copies) is three releases in one, as the packaging—a hand-made, balsa wood box and a cover consisting of paper, Western red cedar veneer, and balsa wood, to be precise—makes a significant impact, too.
