I am quite pleased to finally unleash the new Gilead Media logo imagery, illustrated by the unparalleled Aaron Horkey.
When Gilead Media began in 2005, its purpose was to fulfill my own personal creative outlets and my desires to work with other like-minded artists. My motivations to be a part of art’s creation were influenced by many external factors in my life, and many inspirational pieces of art to which I felt a strong personal connection.
The old Gilead Media logo was representative of that original idea of the label, and over the years I feel as though Gilead Media has grown and evolved into something far greater than I ever intended. It has its own power now, it draws others into its light. It’s an entirely different creature.
Horkey’s art captures this emotion perfectly, and will server as a fitting image to represent the label for the next decade.
We have also printed up a series of t-shirts and hooded sweatshirts featuring this new imagery. The first run sold out in a day or so, but we have more arriving this week, so we’re taking orders now for that second run. Available on your choice of Gildan t-shirt, Next Level Apparel t-shirt, or Royal Apparel zip-up hooded sweatshirt garments. All three printed with light grey, water-based discharge ink.
Hello, yes. Please read, as this is actually important:
My partner of like 12 years, Cari, has spent the majority of her adult life working within the animal welfare industry, starting first as a volunteer (with me!) at the Oshkosh Area Humane Society and gradually working her way up to her position now as the intake manager and caregiving manager at OAHS. She and her staff care for every animal that comes through the door of the shelter. And that’s a lot of animals, roughly 2,400 yearly.
OAHS also has an astronomically high live release rate even amongst other life-saving shelters, something like 96% for the summer. That’s huge. That means they provide the required care (medical, behavioral, etc) to get animals adopted and placed into their forever homes in almost every single case. Nearly every animal that comes through the door requires some level of medical attention, and that comes at a cost.
This is the time when the Oshkosh Area Humane Society runs their only large fundraising event of the year, Walk For The Animals. Money is tight for a lot of people right now, I know. But if you have a few bucks to spare, please consider donating. Literally every, single, tiny, bit will help a bunny get a bot fly removed from its neck, a kitten get a surgery it needs to survive, or a stray puppy get its vaccines. Like our little buddy Tater when he came to the shelter as an 8 week old baby found in a snow bank.
Cari has touched countless lives through her work at the Oshkosh Area Humane Society, please consider supporting her as she continues her mission to save the lives of animals and touch the hearts of people in our community.
Fundraising for this year ends on Saturday the 17th.
Today we are very proud to unleash another track from the new Mizmor album, this time in cooperation with our friends at NPR.
This week the Viking’s Choice is Mizmor – Bask in the Lingering. The closing track on on the new full-length album, Yodh.
“Like much of Yodh, “v. Bask In The Lingering” takes its time, at first carving space out of a low, windswept drone that beds a slow, mournful guitar melody for a few minutes. But like a Mournful Congregation dirge blasted by Panopticon’s blistering twin-leads, a swarming feedback-drone bursts into a breakneck black-metal-punk rage, giving A.L.N., Mizmor’s sole member, a pulpit from which to spew a sermon on survival in the midst of pain”

We have sold out of weekend passes, and have made available an extremely limited number (less than 20) of single day passes available to go on sale at 2pm pacific time. They will be at the same page as the weekend passes, just with different options available.
The first track from the new MIZMOR album is streaming now at Black Metal and Brews. “Woe Regains My Substance” is entirely different from anything you’ve ever heard from Mizmor in the past. Pre-orders for the new 2LP / CD entitled “Yodh” will begin next month, and the album will be available at Migration Fest. Test pressings have been approved and sound monstrous. Enjoy:
