Alright.....here's the deal. I am REALLY GOOD at composing music. Seriously. No, I'm not bragging...... I've finally accepted that all of you who have told me this are right and I have not been allowing myself to realize that, yes, I'm really fucking good. A Lot of musicians feel the same way, I'm sure: "My friends tell me I'm good because they are my friends." "That guy at the show was really drunk, so I sounded better to him". "I really don't do that much, honestly." "I suppose I'm okay, but I'm not as good as so and so" ETC Well screw that.... I give up. I agree with everyone who's told me I'm good. So if you haven't checked it out yet..... hear what other people have tuned into, but *I* was too insecure to realize..... Thank you all for beating this message into my thick skull PS: This is just the tip of the iceberg......... http://morrisonsprophecy.bandcamp.com/releases
I will make no excuses for the delay in the release of "Geistmusik". It was due last year and it has still not been released. The album has been a bitter and painful thing for me. I am delving into recesses of my psyche which have been locked away for nearly 20 years. I am examining old wounds and scars and laying myself bare, broken and flayed on this album. This is "Kevin".....not "The Reverend Worlock Kevin J Byrne Esq"..... this is just "me", flawed, damaged and broken. "Geistmusik" is a mix of Queensryche's "Operation: Mindcrime" and "The Plaguemass" by Diamanda Galas: It is "Morrison's Prophecy" stripped bare and bleeding. It is not intended to be "Easy Listening". It WILL offend. It WILL hurt and (for those of you who, like me, suffer the scars of religious trauma), it WILL be revelatory. . I do not say these things lightly, nor as an excuse for the delay. I only ask that you understand that each track on this album was wrought with my blood, sweat and tears.
In Honor of the Summer Solstice, I'd just like to take a moment to thank all of you who have supported me. I often forget that i have "Fans"... no,.not because I'm too wrapped up in myself to notice, but because I think of most of you as "Friends who I met through my music". No, I don't get a chance to talk to all of you individually as much as I'd like (but let's face it.....there are now a whole hell of a lot more of you out there than when I started this whole Morrison's Prophecy thing......more than I ever expected really) No, I may not be playing sell-out crowds in huge arenas (yet), but I wanted to thank each and every one of you for making me feel like a "Star". I Love you all. Thank you. May the Solstice see a new day dawn in your lives (whether you believe in hokey mumbo jumbo or not) -RWKJB http://morrisonsprophecy.bandcamp.com/track/vi-emotion-the-star

Seattle electronica act Morrison's Prophecy announced today that their web-exclusive album "Apocrypha" will be indefinitely going out-of-print as of May 1st, 2014.
"Our recent signing with Wicked Wonderland Empire has caused us to reevaluate our present marketing strategy and it is felt that emphasis on our older work should be toned down as we move forward. To that end, we are streamlining our available catalog and scaling back to focus on the future." Said founder The Reverend Warlock Kevin J Byrne Esq.
Moving forward, Morrison's Prophecy will be focusing their efforts toward promotion of the forthcoming album "Geistmusik" and a possible re-pressing of their debut "The Alchemical Process" under the Wicked Wonderland Empire imprint.
"Currently, 'Geistmisik' is the focus, but we have discussed a physical re-issue of a remixed, extended and remastered version of 'The Alchemical Process' with the label. We feel that if we are going to be promoted by Wicked Wonderland, we should be sure that all of our work serves to promote them as well with appropriate branding, etc."
one of my favorite tracks of all time.
One day, I hope to at least remix this.....
Thanks for the inspiration, Rudy.
