Hanged Mans Seed came into existence from a strong urge I had at the time to return to the more extreme ends of music. As the band I was in at the time began to take on more of a lighter, poppy sensibility, I felt like I was slowly losing touch with both the ability to express myself musically and all the reasons I began making it in the first place. What came as a result was the idea to make something the complete opposite of what I was doing at the time and I knew I could only do it alone. A bloated, messy, psychedelic, noisy, doom, punk & power-electronics inspired, bass-centric monstrosity that became this album. I still remember how cathartic making and releasing this album felt. Since 2012, there have been tentative plans for live performance and a second album, but as of yet, there are no developments on either of these fronts. I consider this still an active project, and someday there will be more.
