Pocket Universe is currently seeking publications (web or print) to review their 2012 release, Tor’ment.
Torment is a concept/story based album that tells the tale of a vampire love story using music and poetry.
[Tor’ment Story Synopsis] Nicolò & Isabol are soul mates in the 15th century torn apart when Nicolò gets bitten and turned into a vampire. Isabol begs him to turn her as well but Nicolò refuses, not wanting to curse her with an eternity of living as a vampire. Time passes and Isabol ages and dies while Nicolò remains, cursed to wander the earth forever, alone. Isabol is reincarnated in the modern world and has memories of their life and love. Unable to bear the thought of another life without Nicolò and tormented by her desire to find her soul mate, Isabol, sets off on the journey to find Nicolò and to get him to turn her. She is determined to rejoin Nicolò for eternity this time around. Tor’ment follows her journey, painting the setting with sound and telling their story of undying love and sacrifice.

this is the poem that we used to create a new song, improv style last night at the RUBABOO Aboriginal Arts Festival. Occasionally, I wish to only think of mundane things. To be unaware and ignorant. To fill my days with thoughts of nothingness. To worry only about mortality
Sporadically, I curse The knowledge of answers to questions I never asked.
Ultimately, I rant. Exploring vapid sarcastic expression and biting observations. Raw emotions churn out onto my page. Without substance. Mere reflections of existence that oozed into my awareness.
I express. With wild abandon in exuberant words. And flowing inspiration fills my page, with reflections of innermost whims, And unchallenged desire.
I struggle. With nervous anxiety threatening to eclipse my desire to share, these fantastic visions.
I plunge. With reckless abandon. To my delight the dream soars. Given flight in new imaginations
